Do Beards Make You A Better Angler ?
Thinking today about the various famous anglers and those not so.How many of our real angling demi-gods have facial hair ?Let's take a quick look at the facts......
Des Taylor-Proper Beard 'an all.
Sir.Peter Springate-Carp legend type beard.
Tommy Pickering-Little Tash but he were that good he gets in.
And then their is my mate Paul "Popsy" Whiteing.The one in the photo in the center.This picture was taken around fours years ago at the BS Conference.Now what this man does not know about Centerpin reels,is not worth knowing.He is a legend in his own garden shed.The man can moan for England ;-)
But If you see this man on the bank,I plead with you do not fish within a mile of him!He carry's the dreaded "Black Spot" of the angling gods.You have been warned.He will admit he did not really catch much last season.And I know he is keen to put that right.So this little blog I hope will make him get out more,and shove these words right down my throat ?
And on the subject of the BS "Do's".I did hear a naughty little tale about someone signing a petition,but using another anglers name ?At the "Running Water Show" on the 09/05/10.At present it's just hearsay and innuendo,but I'll see If I can get some more information.If it's true ?In the words of Danny Dyer "That's Pwoper Nawwteyy"
Popsy Whiteing go for it son.And I'll see you on the bank next season.
Ps The two other lads Neil and Glen, did not happen to have the bad luck rub off on them.Phew.
