    Is me I reckon, last two sessions I have excelled myself in uselessness, managed to nest up my reels time after time, - with mags on full, and today I accomplished the amazing feat of casting around 15 feet using a 14 foot rod, :sick: lol, never mind the crack offs and general clumsiness and tripping and falling over, sticking hooks in my fingers, etc, etc......
    I'm sure I'm just having a bad period, but I seem to get worse every time I go out!

    Anyone got any similar tales of woe to cheer me up? :laugh:

    I know the feeling but my mate still has to be the worst fisherman in the land. He spends all his energy into seeing how far he can cast without ever catching a fish.

    A few weeks ago on the west pier at Whitby with his brand new £170 rod he decides to cast a lead as far as Sandsend. We can all guess what happens next...... the lead gets caught on the railing behind him.... one enormous power cast and ......


    ...suddenly the nice new 14ft rod is 10' 4"

    Went out last week to give the kayak a pre-season shake down cruise on an estuary. First cast with the brand new (cheap) spinning rod ended with a broken section and bird's nest on the multiplier costing thirty yards of line. While I was sorting the spinning tackle out I drifted into the bank and broke the tip off my expensive fly rod. So, I had travelled 70 miles for no fishing and a twenty quid repair bill for the fly-rod.

    The time before that I had visited the same venue I arrived to find that I had all my fly-tackle, but no flies. There were fish all over and I couldn't do anything about it.

    Does that make you feel better?

    I'm the best at getting snagged up and losing gear, no contest. While Sambo is the best at getting soaked by waves :canadian:

    Sam, apparently Pike release an anti coagulant when they bite a prey fish. So thats why its hard to stop the bleeding when you cut yourself when unhooking them.
