Makes me cringe hearing grown men call someone they have never met by their nickname.

Maybe you should put some work into your personality, not just pigs and fishing.

Im a farmers lad. I had my first litter of pigs at the age 8. Ive grafted all my life. I take that into my fishing and it has meant success. Ive had over 50 fish from my syndicate including the largest in the lake, all down to hard work. People with your attitude have had just 2. I hope you dont change.

I hate the wraps one. My response is either "f*** me your fishing close in" or just continually convert what they say to yards and most think I'm talking about a different spot.

Them: "Yeah I'm fishing at 15 wraps to a gravel patch"

Me: "aye there's a bar at 60 yards"

Them: "oh well I'm on a patch at 15 wraps"

Me: "yep, 60 yards is the place to be"

What time of the year is a squid and octopus hatch? Sorry Johnny, I couldn't resist

I think matching the hatch is only really applicable to what fly a fluff chucker would choose given what time of year it was and what was emerging at the time. Saying similar about boilies makes no sense to me.

Just about every Carp Angling brand these days obviously think, that we the Angler are all complete and utter Dullards with the crap they are attempting to sell us at greatly inflated prices.

A lot of Carp Angling is total nonsense these days.

Spod, distance and bag ‘work’ always tickles me.
As do the people who ‘haven’t looked back’ since buying an irrelevant object identical to that which it replaced which was perfectly adequate until they were duped by a marketing dept.
And the drag being called a clutch, when it’s a brake.
Pulling out of fish... sounds plain illegal and just doesn’t happen in the sense it’s meant.
Working hard for a fish when more often than not it involved sitting or laying down for longer than we have evolved to do

Grown men on a carp forum, expressing their jealousy and envy

calling spod mix "gear"

saying you "pulled off a lake"

Washing your boilies out in water for over 24hrs then pouring a £10 bottle of liquid flavour over them. Completely pointlessas zero of that liquid willabsorb into the bait.

Calling yourself hardcore if you go fishing in the moddle of winter in nothing more than a wooly jumper and a bedchair (caaaarpy).

1) Can / cant have them on pop ups only on this water.

2) I usually fish at about 120 yards & they don't believe in wrapping up rods.

3) you need to strike on the take

''quick 24 hours''

''quick over nighter''

''get on the going bait''

''bruv''

''old scaley banger''

''chunk''

''carpy''

any discussion of ''range'' or ''im fishing at range..... 42 wraps''

mozza from fox also really annoys me. if he was on fire and i had a pint of water id drink it then glass him.

To be fair, you were 6 inches out, you'd have caught twice as many if you listened to the expert.

Me and my mate used to say that, or similar, to each other all the time. Or I'd watch him cast out then, when his cast is inch perfect, look away and claim not to have seen it.

Last year I booked a weeks fishing in York with a lake side lodge...there is also a syndicate on the lake who can fish all swims apart from the ones allocated to the lodges...

I was fishing about 70 yards out and was doing ok...I didn’t empty the place ....but was holding my own....

One time i was re-casting and one of the syndicate members was walking round with the usual “caught owt” what bait etc etc.... and when i hit my spot i was advised i was 6 inches to the left out.....

I politely told him to F*ck off..and ended the conversation.

Hi All

If it's got a mouth curtain it's a bank virgin

If you shake it, it's fins stand up

And my personal favourite: the size of the bubbles relate to it's size

I call bs on autumn being the one. Maybe it's where I and others that I've spoken to fish, all the same, they say the same, autumn is crap.

That's just one of a list of things I hear I'd like to call out. Feel free to add more
