  • Sitting it out....however bad it gets

    Was in a match Saturday.... once the ice started to shift !
    Anyway, out of 9 anglers & with 3 minutes to go only three had caught. I hadn't had a bite & had already started putting stuff away just leaving one rod set up & in the water (bomb & sweetcorn).
    Then I spotted the welcomed sight of a wiggle at the tip, picked up the rod & reeled in a 2lb 3oz skimmer for 3rd place ! ... just shows it ain't over till the large lady sings as they say.
    I have only ever packed up early once & that wasn't because of the lack of bites/fish or because of the cold, quite the opposite. It was a blazing hot day, sun on my back, headache from dehydrating & no drink.
    We do have a regular early leaver though, if he's not catching, in fact he gets stick at the draw every week now, i.e. what time you off today then ?... can't print his response .. this is a family site !

    I take it this is a site of die-hards though, however tough a day it is ?
