    i've always thought it pointless to call a pouting a blegg, if you say that you caught a blegg to someone who dosen't know you spend the next couple of minutes explaining it's pouting but you haven't got a bloody clue why, so why bother?

    no doubt it'll have it's origins dating back to 17 o blot, - same as the description of a small codling being called a mop , someone recently asked why, and no one seemed to know the reason, is it because they will mop up any bait that you care to chuck at em? or just a lazy shorter way of saying to somone that you caught a couple of small codling?
