No I am not wearing wrist restraints but I hope to be helping the police fly fishing club on Tuesday evening with a "talk". I've never done one of these before and was thus stimulated into thinking things through in some detail. What can I tell them? Well then it dawned on me that telling people how to fish is not always a good idea.
I understand that there is a saying from Spain that goes along these lines:
"You may criticise an Englishman's wife but never criticise his driving!"
Is angling not a little bit like that? Am I causing offence when I pass on a few bits and pieces intended to help?
Well maybe the best thing to do is simply explain how I go about this wonderful Sport of ours and if the ideas are deemed worthy of trial then so be it, and may it bring us all great pleasure.
The only certainty that I can offer the police and you dear blog reader is that those three, integrated principles touched on in this earlier post and then this one are paramount to the angler's enjoyment and success.
