Round Two BAG-UP 2013
This BAG-UP match has been cancelled by the organiser Dave Kent due to the adverse weather conditions.
Dave has no plans to re-schedule this match, and the series will now be fished over 5 matches.
This Picture was taken on Polo Field at Trent Lock during this winter period. No wonder we didn’t fish!
At one time of day when most of the anglers today were a bit younger, and possibly keener, and optimistic we would and have fished this very stretch of the River in these conditions. Sometimes we caught a few, but it was alway a battle against the cold, and winter clothing wasn’t as good as we can buy now.I can also remember giving up after a couple of hours and heading for the pub!.
I would and still today look at some of the conditions we fish in and look down the bank and think ‘ there’s a lot work here for a good man with psychiatric experience’.
I don’t this phenomenon is just applicable to anglers, I’ve seen golfer’s play at Trent Lock golf course when we have been drawing for pegs, so we weren’t only mad people out in bad weather conditions for the love of the sport!.
