Now I've looked into this Asperger Syndrome malarkey and it is not unlike "Black and White".I thought about this today while blanking on the river for Chub.You see some traits of Asperger's,make it difficult for people to interact on a social level with others.I like to think I like what I like and if I do not like it,then stuff it and I have no interest,just let others do the talking and observe.Perhaps all fisherman are,as we are mostly alone by the water and can argue and always settle our differences in an amicable manner with ones inner self.
If for instance I like someone,then I would move heaven and earth to help them,if not?Well tough luck,your not in my spectrum.Is that a bad thing I wonder,living your life by your own rules as opposed to doing things for others,just to make them happy.Phew I'm glad I'm a little nuts,as I'm happy to be me.Take me as you find me,if you do not like what you see,then move on.Does the above sound a little deep for an angling blog?Well not really,just random things that go through my mind,while freezing my nuts off for the chance of a fish.They do say that angling is the "contemplative mans " pastime after all.
Alarm goes off around half past five,shower and a quick breakfast.Grab your bait and off to the river you go,large dollop of rain and sleet last night.Arrive at said river and it's still a little carrying a little to much colour for my liking.
Matthew,Matthew,Matthew Clarke you naughty boy.Matthew entered an angling competition in Guernsey with the prize,a nice tidy eight hundred pounds.But Matthew could not be arsed to fish,he done what all stroke pullers do,he cheated.He,under the cover of darkness(tis the only way trust one who knows),broke into the St.Peters Port Aquarium in Guernsey and stole this Bass!His intention though was sublime,some how he was going to return the fish to the Aquarium,after claiming the filthy lucre.But the dozy bastard dropped the fish and it died.
But he was "tumbled",by another competitor who recognized the fish from its home and alerted the Police, it must be a buzzing PLAICE 'ol Guernsey.The silly sod now has one hundred hours community service to do.Fisher folk eh,are we all mad.
And keeping with the mad theme,have a look at this from our friends over on Fatwa.
Never has one item of tackle caused such friction,over the last god knows how many years.It's easy lads,service your pole on a regular basis and you will be fine.
That's it,time for a beer or three,I do though fancy a little bet on Sunday.A double with both Man Utd and Arsenal winning there respective fixtures,unlike us today.Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
