    Only my opinion

    As the person that both made the video and the comments, my point is that every time I go fishing there is a fresh load of crap in the swim and a couple of aussie banksticks (snappped off twigs pushed in to the ground) and to clarify, when I say crap I mean literally, I walked in to the swim once with my wife and there was literally a massive turd laying in the middle of the area with a pile of toilet paper on top of it. Keep in mind that the place is surrounded by bush and hence if someone was caught short, it would only have been a 10 metre walk to put it in an area that nobody would have ever known about. The reason i said "aussie anglers" is that every ex pat catch and release angler I know of over here has the greatest respect for the fish they catch and the surroundings they fish in. Where as most of the angling I see being demonstrated by Australians shows little respect for anything. Lip grips, letting fish lay on the bottom of a red hot metal tinny or straight on to gravel or whatever the bank is made up of. (and thats on the TV programs) then look at the waterways bottles/cans/food wrappers/turds/shopping trolleys you name it I've found it. including set lines on 30lb plus mono with massive hooks that I found because I was attached to it because the hook had gone in to my ankle. please note that I wasn't wading, this was whilst I was on dry land. once I removed the hook, i followed the line to the nearest tree and found three other lines set in the water as well. The blogs I make are to promote responsible catch and release angling and appreciation and care for the fish I catch and the surroundings that I am in when conducting that angling, If I find that anyone doesn't share those values then I will do my best to educate them as to why I think they are wrong. Sorry that you didn't enjoy the video.

    What to do - double take?

    Twice in a week at Rushes Lake, near Le Mans. Consecutive nights as it goes....... I found that panic worked well for me.....focussed my mindset. On both occasions I locked up the rod with the second take and each time managed to land both fish. The second occasion was the only time in my life that I've had carp to 56lbs in my net....... Ian

    What to do - double take?

    Last summer for me,on the good old corn. The fish went mental on that session I think I ended up with 10. I was just getting ready to net the one I'm holding when the other rod started singing. I tightened the clutch up a bit on the free rod,and netted the other one as fast as I could. Balliff came round and unhooked it in the net for me as I battled the 2nd one. As said it's all about keeping calm and trying not to panic. I was laughing my head off if I'm honest,as you can see the weather was nice,the fishing was good and I may of had a Guinness or 3 by then

    Only my opinion

    Mate, come to Australia and watch some of the angling programs, or try and tell someone that you are a carp fisherman who practices catch and release (which is perfectly legal in NSW where I am) and you will soon see that it is more than "some" that need educating. The attitude towards fish in general, fish care and the environment is largely appalling and the attitude towards Carp is best summed up as hatred (which is still putting it mildly) If pointing that out upsets some, sorry, but it needs saying. I know what you mean about some places in the UK mate, I lived there for 30 years, but I promise you, the attitudes over here are like nothing I've seen or heard before.and are far more widespread than a "few"

    Tim, one day I'll tell you a story involving Little Farriers lake, a curry, Mad Andy and a Muntjac deer at dusk. I'm grinning as I type this........... Ian
