I LOVE catching fish as much as the next man but there is far more to our sport than just catching.
Fishing brings with it a unique package and the environment in which I am fishing is just as important as what ends up in the net. I’d far rather get just the odd bite at an idyllic pond or estate lake than catch 100lb of F1s on a muddy commercial.
I also enjoy keeping an eye out for various types of wildlife and I have even invested in camera equipment to take pictures of what I see on my day out.
Don’t get irritated if the fishing isn’t going your way – our sport isn’t just about how many times the float goes under. Christopher Wilkins, email
