  • Plan and pack or haul it all?

    Hi all,
    do you plan a session right down to the setups and specific kit you take or haul the lot and rarely use most of it lol.

    after a good few months ive recently sectioned off my kit and plan my bank time with select kit where as id take every rod/reel and bag and box i have and the kitchen sink before.

    i aim this question to pleasure time not matches.

    by sectioning i now aim to big carp fish or match style specifically feeder fish or pole and not just take kit for the sake of it.

    what do you all do and why, am i alone in packing all but the kitchen sink only to really waste the energy and make life hard lol. Or are you one to just see how the day goes and take it all so your covered even if it doesnt see the water.

    i am finding this planning lark harder than i thought due to forgeting terminal kit or forgetting that little bit box or mix tub etc lol

    Im sure ill get there in the end but what about you?

    I used to take tackle to cover everything even for pleasure trips not that I fished many matches other than my clubs, but nowadays I try to just take what I need.
    I have an incidental on my left shoulder, he's always there, he's my friend.
    He says he gives me good advice. does he ?

      I plan everything.
      Put together just what i need and end up hauling the lot. Can't help it.
