Win­ning for­mula

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

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
