Talking of ASD have a look at the Gary McKinnon interview on YouTube. Very interesting.

The strange thing for me is my job, I am a hotel duty manager, which puts me right in the front line of having to talk to people every day, and some customers you just wish...
My colleagues who I work with all seem to accept how I am, although I know at times they do find me difficult, and strange as I don't do social very well.


I can't remember where I read it, but I believe that a lot of engineers, inventors, scientists and doctors are within the ASD or Aspergers syndrome; certainly many people in those trades I have spoken to are single minded and struggle to communicate with other people. If they explain about a procedure they can be almost in a monotone.

Agreed.

Maybe, the best way to put it is there are shades and we all fit in somewhere within to more or less of an extent. I know myself, I can be OCD - someone who knows me well points it out regularly, much to his amusement - and pretty relentless trying to achieve what some may seem as pretty mundane or even unnecessary/unimportant activities.

I think the difference is is where that focus is directed. From what I've seen of Terry Hearn for instance, he's obsessed with the very tiny intricate important details, whereas I'm fannying around with my bedchair being level so as to be able to get to sleep, so much so I have to use a spirit level app on my phone to get it dialed in just.... ....right.

From time to time I can direct my crazy and does pay off with fish on the bank, though, my head is like a bird's nest of crazy and cutting through that bird's nest is a long winded and pretty winding, meandering journey.

How on earth do you reach those conclusions from what I said? I was pointing out that referring to someone as a mental or making sweeping negative statements about people with Autism is not only Il informed it is also insensitive and innappropriate on a public platform.

Actually you're right and I should have chosen my words far more carefully than I did. If I've offended anyone, then I do apologize for doing so.

I do think that there are certain traits that fall under the spectrum that are in some way gifts which I'm of the opinion may have a bearing on levels of success - this may well be an incorrect assumption on my part - though, equally, those gifts may well not seem such gifts for those whom have them; if that makes sense?

Not in response to anyone in particular, everyone has traits that will fit in the spectrum its when these traits start to affect daily life that it becomes an issue for the person. i really dont care what JS does in his fishing because it wont affect me,i certainly wish my photo album was like his but dont have the time or the inclination to go to those efforts. The furore he creates in forums like this are amusing at times and worth a read, however i do think everyone needs to be a little nicer to each other, as said many times opinions are likes arse holes we all have one but dont need to share them. Just think about whats being said before typing.
Have a fab day

I think the guy who had a go has fallen into the trap of of thinking all people with Aspergers are non verbal, canít make eye contact etc. Itís a very old fashioned way of viewing what is a wide ranging disorder. Hence we now have a spectrum. My missus is a nurse, one of their best surgeons is on the aspergers spectrum he struggles in social situations and with confrontations but he is whatís known as a High functioning case ie apart from those two situations there is nothing wrong with him, his mind just works differently.

I think Jim Shelley if Iím honest has just done too many bloody drugs back in the day if Iím honest, there was a thread a while ago about nick Helleur and his odd personality unlike Jim nick has been open about his drug use on the rave scene, they both have a shifty vibe to them that often comes from heavy drug use and before anyone goes how can you be qualified to say that, I will reiterate what I said on that thread.

Iím a chef I work in an industry with a real drug problem, I work with people everyday who display similar traits as both anglers mentioned even now they are clean and have been for a while itís given them certain ticks as it were. Jimís appears to be paranoia, nicks appears to be he canít talk about one thing for more than a few seconds without going off on a completely different tangent

Asperger's, same as me. Like you I find it very hard to back down over things. Also being in a crowd can send me into a panic. Most people can't live with how "short" my verbal skills are and think I'm being an arse or dismissive with them on purpose.

If I ever mention that that I'm on the spectrum to somebody they always seem to think it makes you into some kind of genius too

I am sure that there are many anglers who have some level of Autistic Spectrum Disorder as in all human activity. "

Yes. I'm one of them. Hence I know a bit about it. Hope your little bitch fit you've just had has made you feel good about yourself.


I am as well, Aspbergers syndrome or whatever it has now been called, putting me in the Autistic Spectrum, diagnosed at the age of 45 after a few years of stress through work.
I do know that ASD means I can be an argumentative git when I know I'm in the right.

That does not mean I go out of my way to break rules fish where I shouldn't, or behave in a manner that is anti-social

Sorry knickersniffer and boonylocks but time to shut up. I am sure that there are many anglers who have some level of Autistic Spectrum Disorder as in all human activity. Your ignorant, innacurate and insensitive words and statements don't do you or this forum any favours. Think BEFORE you speak. I have no intention of developing this further, but this needed to be said.
