I'm not into the drone thing however, having seen one operated on the pit i'm fishing, they are a massive massive edge. Checking your spots and fish locating, it really needs to be seen to be believed. The imagery relayed from that thing to your phone is crystal clear. Absolute crackers. Blokes can scour 30acres of water in 10 minutes looking for fish...it is a piss take.

Each to their own chaps - as long as it doesn't affect my fishing, crack on.

I have been an angler over 40 years, was also bought up trotting a stick float down the rivers, honing my skills using various techniques....I poured over books for hours got my Mum to pick up Angling Times each week with her Woman's Weekly and then went out and practiced what I had learned, over and over...

I've still got those skills and knowledge but am also willing to embrace modern Carp Fishing, I have no problem whatsoever with people using technology, fishing waters containing "wrong-uns" or thinking they are Urban warriors.....as long as you are respectful to other anglers and your quarry then crack on and enjoy it. Fishing is a hobby at the end of the day.

Sounds simple but if you don't like boats or other technology then don't fish waters that allow them...if you do fish waters that allow them then as long as they don't interfere with your fishing leave others alone!

Peace out. ✌

I was also taught the centre pin looping the line over 5 fingers of the left hand to draw line off the reel then casting at a rag and drawing back over it to catch it on the hook. I taught my son the same way. But he doesn't fish anymore.

My first reel was a centrepin,that's how I learnt to fish ,used to practise casting a small unweighted float into a bucket, when I'd been deemed by my father ,to not get tangled up ,off we went and my lifetime journey in angling began..

For me it's all about the journey..always was,always will be...

I still have my Bernard Venables books,...

Each to their own I say,but glad I was brought up this way in angling terms,I use bite alarms,that's as far as I will go....

Modern tech takes the skill and hunter,which is buried deep inside you away from your innermost soul and being,once overt tech is involved,your a husk,nothing ,your senses are dulled,and your skills reliant on a screen..

Drones,deeper,and other gadgets destroy the art of angling,some of my cane n pin mates detest bite alarms,..it is what is....

My dad taught me to cast by casting at a metal dustbin lid at various ranges. Made a satisfying clang when you hit it. I was pretty good back in the day. Out of practice now. That's what it takes. PRACTICE.

Nobody likes to earn the nickname “Skill less”



On the flip side, I had the pleasure of watching a new member the other weekend – casting 50-60 yards in-between 2ft gaps in Iris clumps hanging over the waters edge without clipping up, not using any marker sticks are anything – with such ease.
I asked “How the hell have you gained those skills?” He explained that when on deployment in his spare time he would place a Un-hooking mat at different ranges in a field and practise casing to it, until he could hit it everytime with a lead, and kept doing it at all ranges.

I was well impressed
