Nice bream and well done. I'm a real grumpy old git at the moment as can't fish. I've got tennis elbow  and can't cast. Not touched a tennis racket for over 40 years though! The season on the river I fish ends in a couple of weeks so thinking of digging my old coarse tackle out. However I think a cane Mk IV carp rod and a Bruce and Walker 14 ft glass match rod might get a few odd looks. All the preparation for match fishing takes me back 50 years. Now I just take a box of flies, spare fluorocarbon, rod, reel, net and bottle of water.

Not good enough @St3 we need a face reveal or is it your Halloween mask?

You'd be surprised how many people there are using vintage gear. I still use a couple of old Mitchel match 440's with 2 old 13' split cane rods at times, but must admit my match stuff is carbon and reels are Shimano's.

Leaving off a smiley is a bit like leaving off the trailing full-stop or exclamation mark.

 

The full gist is still there so, technically, still a full quote.

Thanks for clarifying that, it's just that I thought I read somewhere that a single line quote was OK and that a quote of 2 lines or more had to be edited...my mistake.  Thumbs Up

Never noticed any women fishing, not that I have looked very hard.

No doubt there are a few but  I bet the ratio is small.

@gleneagles

At the lakes where I used to live, there where approx 18 to 20 female anglers who organised their own matches etc. But you are correct, female anglers are a bit thin on the ground. Maybe cos they don't like creepy-crawlies or frightened of breaking a nail. I'll stop there cos wifey giving me 'the look', (she goes fishing).  Roll eyes

Plenty of fishwives about, but one tends to hear the before one sees them.
