Time for another one of these I think.........Below we have that all round Barbel god Richard Easom who is totally driven,marketing tool par excellence and you will jolly well take notice of his blog,as it was posted up mostly on FM for the last few months.Richard will leave no stone upturned in his quest for world domination on the Barbel front.And by Jove we need another Barbel expert do we not?
And below we have that all time kids favorite from back in the day,Mr.Hartly the Hare with a nice fish caught from the Coventry canal last May.Sorry about naming the venue folks,but that is the way that things seem to be going,publish up chapter and verse on the capture and the venue and stuff the rest.
Which brings me to my main point.......How much is to much to give away on a blog or an angling forum about your captures.My view is this...........Mention the river that you fish by all means,but by giving specifics,beats or showing swims is wrong.None of us own our particular favorite beat of river,but surely we all like a little peace and quiet to unwind when we fish.If my favorite rivers were suddenly inundated with anglers over a certain fish that was caught,or an extensive write up on the net I would be mighty miffed.Not all anglers have an ego that makes them do a blog and not all anglers want the added attention on their favorite rivers.So how about a little thought for other anglers.It's easy to cover photo's also.....Here is one of mine from a while ago,a nice Perch that took seconds to tweak.Have a think for others maybe guys and gals eh?Or perhaps I'm in the wrong and you should publish and be dammed.?
It's just my view from Yat Rock but I think people should be a little more thoughtful?Anyway this is just a very quick blog entry as being Friday,I'm off out for a cupla pints.So enjoy your weekend and If you are fishing,catch a whopper,but think a little eh?
