This is about fishing in general and I am just using the Mull as an example... After reading Glenns post on the Mull, had me wondering what has happened to the Mull, are we expecting far too much..? I have fished the Mull for many years now and just to be up there with or without a fishing rod is great and without doubt it is a special place, had some wonderful memories and hope to have many more. I think sometimes though I am guilty of wanting it to produce its treasures every time I cast a line, but in reality that's not going to happen all the time. I know what the Mull is capable of and hope one day it will give up its goods again.. I cant help thinking its my own greed which spoils it for me, for example am i really happy with a couple of bass, no I want a dozen, a 4lbers not that special I want a 6lber. Not a good session on the Pollack unless I have had 20+ with one or two between 5-7lb, A few conger is not that great unless they are in to double figures.... Why after awhile do we start to think like this? Wasn't fishing much more enjoyable when we were over the moon, when we caught a Bass or a Pollack or a Conger regardless of its size. I guess that's why I enjoy taking and showing people what the Mull has to offer, In the last few years we've had Lee, Andy, Dav, John and a few others and its great to see the enjoyment through them, seeing them catch there first Pollack or Bass, watching them struggle to get a Conger moving and I think back how much I enjoyed it when I was in there shoe's... Its sad that we put such expectations on such a lovely place and on ourselves for that matter.. I guess anyone who is well into there fishing knows its like a drug, you need more and more to give you that high and the first time was the best, we spend lots of money on shiney new lures or rubber jellys and new toys, hoping to get that feeling once again... I guess its a flaw in the human race, but then again if we didn't have the desire to better ourselves we would still be living in caves and not have accomplished very much... Will we ever be totally content or is not being content the key to success??? Whats your thoughts??
