I have learnt over the years, never plan to much and take it as it comes. I always have a target of a new PB but realistically this year could be the one. There has always been a chance but this year there is certainly a greater one, for both carp and pike and. You never know, I may even crack the Barbel on the Hampshire Avon – if I can drag myself away from the carp that is.
These two are the ones to beat but most importantly (and foremost in my fishing) is enjoyment. In the past, I got way too wrapped up in ‘I must catch this fish and that fish’, it certainly effected my fishing back then. Once I realised that we go for the buzz, the just being there and watching nature my fishing just improved.
It is now a joy to be put there as much as possible.
Good luck all for 2018
