  • Why are Fishing Forums fairly quiet?

    I've noticed that fishing forums tend to be pretty quiet on the whole. The amount of activity is very low compared to many other types of forum eg. Computing or Air Gun forums for instance.
    Take a look at AirGun BBS or any of the others (not plugging, just a good example), the activity is hard to keep up with...there may be 15 pages or more of posts to catch up with each day!!

    Do you think it's because of the secrecy side of Fishing (not wanting to give away info on good waters etc) or is it something else.

    Personaly i think it's because to many people just want to fill fishing forums up with jokes and such rubbish, (not just TA) and yes i dont bother with joke sections on fishing forums, as i go on Fishing forums for fishing related info and banter and if i dont find it on 1 forum then i hunt around till i do.

    As for the secrecy thought the only people that in my mind tend to keep things secret are those that THINK THEY ARE good where as those that ARE good anglers have no problem telling all.

      True on the secrecy question Malc...personally I like to see others having a good days fishing, so I have no problem passing on info on good swims. Anyway, there are so few 'real anglers' (river anglers) around these days that it's hard to spot another angler on the bank and so not much competition for swims!!

            I intend doing far more river fishing this year, the Trent from Attenborough to Collingham is gonna get some hammer.
            As for the quietness of forum's, i think they'll soon pick up now the weather is getting warmer and people will start thinking more about fishing.

              I've fished rivers all my life Dave, mostly on the Severn but others as well. Most of my Severn fishing is above the conluence of the Vyrnwy and up to Aberbechan near Newton.
              The fishing on the upper Severn is underated....big barbel, though not in the numbers of Shrewsbury and below....very big chub, Dace (not in their past numbers), Grayling, Pike etc......and most of the time you have the river to yourself.....sheer bliss

                It's because we're always going out fishing been out fishing today, had a few nice roach at an un-owned lake next to a tip in Burscough. Just great weather and a nice long weekend. Hopefully the fish will be biting!

                      Like Homer Simpson? Surely you get some time off for Easter, it's been the best bank holiday I can remember weatherwise and the fishing has been great.

                          Hardly surprising IT forums are full of posters. Anglers tend to view PC's as a necessary part of life, not life itself!
