sadly, carpfishing is 99% full of complete TW&T's that have nothing to offer, can in no way add value but are self confessed "experts" cause they are in some S***ty "promo team" for some tin pot company, or even better, they may be a "team member" ....quite what the difference is i'll never know, but normally they have longer and browner tongues

Then you have the real privileged experts...these are called consultants, and these are a very special breed and will easily be fooled with a free beanie, or even a hoodie and do anything for these precious gems and protect their "gems" with every fat finger they have on social media... yet i doubt they even know what the word "consult" actually means

I still think of a 20 as a big fish.

It is a still big fish now, IMHO.
Back in the day, when the TOTAL AMOUNT of any 40's across the whole of the UK could be counted on 2 hands. WOW.

Youngsters, wannabe instagram, faceache, utube vloggers, etc, nowadays haven't a clue how lucky they are, for easy access to decent carp fishing
Or just haven't got a clue ( delete as appropriate )

Cliques are another one, pathetic people, safety in numbers and the easiest way to big yourself up is to pull others down

Personally I wish theyíd all take up golf instead. But then again you canít fluke out an under par round and brag about it for months on end.

That has a LOT to do with it mate. Said it many a time, there is no real measure to the ďsportĒ other than a picture. They say a picture can tell a thousand words but in my carp fishing experiences it can tell a thousand lies too!

How many times have you seen a picture of a fish and the captor has said the biggest load of bollox you have ever heard, yeah, I fished a campaign (pub chuck and he had a bit of luck), yeah I put some effort in (he punished it for 5 years, never understood the water or the fish and caught a couple of decent fish). Then somebody knows the real story and calls them out. Thatís when all the fun starts. Green eyed monster etc lol, nope, you are a liar, and thatís the truth!

There are a LOT of liars and bull****ters trying to make a name for themselves amongst the genuine folk and thatís the problem, they tell untruths for one reason, they are looking for merit that does not or should not exist and they are doing it to polish their egoís and seek their 5 minutes of fame otherwise they would not do it, itís that simple. Cliques are another one, pathetic people, safety in numbers and the easiest way to big yourself up is to pull others down

Good post. My time is really limited these days due to number of factors, but for the time I have, I think I do OK. I don't feel the need to compare my results to anyone. I just go and enjoy.

I had a really good week's fishing in France about 5 years ago. Not gonna say anything about what I caught, but I was worried about how those catches could affect my fishing at home. If anything, catching a few hippos freed me. I now care much less about the size of fish and just enjoy being there and doing it much more. If I catch, great. If I don't, they'll be there the next time.... and the next.
