Foul Hooked Fish
Do they count ? Now I'm led to understand that they "all" count when fishing a "Match" ? I may be wrong here and often am ?But If it's landed then it counts ?
But today while looking down from Yat Rock I have spotted an angler on a Barbel Fishing Shite,that has admitted to foul hooking a Barbel.It happens to us all I guess ?Not I,I must hasten to add.As I'm normally so pissed on the bank I wait for the rod butt to whack me on the chin to alert me to a bite.And by then I know my "Nashy Fang" has "Bitten" in the bottom lip,you owe me for the product placement Kev!
This chap not only weighed the beasty in question,but photographed it and submitted to the gallery on the Shite,I mean site.
Is this what Barbel angling is now ?Jesus I may as well set some night lines and change my name to Vlad Popov,go down the next day and clean up ?
To the chap who done this shame on you!!I bet you were touch ledgering ?Don't tell Stef though he will royally bully you in next months CAT.
It's not cricket this gent's and It must stop.As ever It's only my view from Yat Rock.
The photo at the top is of a "splasher" I knocked on the head last season,and used it as a Pike bait. :-)
