      Lol blah blah blah!
      I’ll start it off
      Are you a fair weather fisherman?
      I used to fish in all weathers, but as i get older- i fish much less in the winter.
      Since the weekender in september i’ve been concentrating on rivers- doing short sessions.
      Come march hopefully i’ll be back on the match front- being pools fodder lol.
      How about you guys? Do you pack up for winter?

          Love winter fishing, try and find some opens or a league somewhere. Unfortunately, not been out this winter due to health reasons, but really enjoy my winter fishing.

            Always have a sabbatical after the Fur and Feather matches.
            First trip of the year on Wednesday, mid if it stays brass monkies I may postpone it.

              I'm out all weathers, although this year for the first time, i've been less excited about going when its really cold. Managed to drag myself out for a club match this morning, overnight low zero degrees and 1 degree when I got out of the car. Wasn't looking good, been finding myself looking for a minimum of 4 degrees lately (going soft).

              As it turned out it was ok. Weighed just over 4lbs, maybe 15 plus silvers. 4hr match. 9 lb odd won it and a breeze had kept the ice away. Other weights of 7,6,5 lb. general consensus was that it fished well in the circumstances ( non carp pool).

              Well worth the effort, by the way I recommend lighter fuel powered hand warmers, eg the peacock, but don't buy a cheapie ... I did and couldn't light it today on its first trip out! Must find my better one. I'll own up to using gloves early in the match, looked like a wimp footballer.

                I always set it going with the gas cooker ring before I leave home.

                  How many of you use the winter to sort/clean your gear/make up rigs etc.? Or do you just switch off and have a break until spring?
