Rotary Letter

Recommended Posts

What happened to the rotary letter we used to do on this forum? There seems to be an abundance of people with either high technical knowledge, vast experience or outright brash opinions. All of these, at least in my eyes, would contribute greatly to the format which I believe was actually quite successful and, more importantly, interesting the last time we did it.

 

Would anybody care to contribute if it was brought back into play?

 

For anybody who doesn't know the format mentioned, it's basically a chosen subject and then the person who writes a piece nominates the next person to contribute their input on the subject matter. It also doesn't have to be entirely serious and humourous posts are more than welcomed. I'd go as far as to say they should be encouraged, personally.

Yes very good idea, I'd contribute, (don't expect much vast experience, technical knowledge or brash opinions though!) Would be great to get old and new to say their experience on any given subject.

CM I think it would be a great way for people to share thier thoughts without it becoming a slanging match. Anyone in disagreement if/when nominated would get the opportunity to give their opinion and balance the argument. It could make a great read, opposing opinions stating their sides and the readers can take the advice that they see fit.

 

I for one think the first subject should be a double hitter, "boilies and braid" te he he :) :-) :) :-)

Jonesy and CM I think with the suggested format and willing participants there would be a good opportunity to have fresh thought provoking content.

Mods bring it back please[emoji4]

To add, I think it would be fresh content, that would be clear of the clutter unhelpful disagreement and could promote side thread where specifics may be discussed. I know I would look forward to the next addition as though I was subscribed to a magazine.

Its not a bad idea Jonezy, i know some guys have a go at my threads but, i dont see too many people putting up subjects worth commenting on or anything at all, and it gets a bit mundane when no new subjects appear.

Got to say CM , it would be very dull on here without your threads....if your not thought provoking your making me chuckle with the bickering. :mrgreen:

Get some ideas down for the first subject on this thread. I will then start one off by picking a random name from the list of most recent posters to do the first instalment.

If people can stick to the rules and only the nominated person posts, then all should be good.

Subjects erm I'd be interested in;

- Using pva

- Why people fish

- watercraft

- fishing new waters

- rig choice why, where, when

 

I'm guessing these are pretty standard but could make interesting reads

I like Neal's idea of a side thread, I don't think we ever had one before, and had deleted posts and threats of bans  :mrgreen: A side thread would allow the agreements or disagreements, banter and bickering without ruining the original thread. :wink:

We have done watercraft and fishing new waters. The rig choice one would be pretty good I reckon.

Did we not have a rig choice as well?? Not that is matters I'm sure we may have changed our opinions on all of the bottom three of Neal's list since....not even sure I can remember my responses too the ones I was nominated on...May have to have a recap!!

To be honest, I think most of those topics have been done to the death on the forums anyway. How about something a bit broader like how we think carp fishing will evolve over the next decade and whether or not we'll see a similar huge growth in other sectors of fishing? What with the otter problem along side other "predators", mainly of the human kind (whether that be killing fish or the desire to turn every lake into a commercial), diminishing the sport, I think It'd be rather interesting to see different people's take on the matter.

 

I'd like to add that I wouldn't like to start the first one, especially if it's on rigs as I only use about three.   :mrgreen:
