VW took over Skoda in 1991. Anybody making Skoda jokes in 2019 is recycling vintage cold war material. ( Here's one: why do Russian policemen go around in three's? One can read, one can write, one keeps an eye on the two intellectuals. )Well I've got a Skoda fabia estate,I bought it new and picked the basic model,not for just price,but I was fed up with air-con packing up,needing rd-charging etc,along with all the other 'mod con's that can go wrong,it's a diesel and runs on fumes,has plenty of space for my tackle and goes a lot quicker than some pushy so and so's think,I've had quite a few supposedly decent cars that left me cold,it's not a Rolls Royce for comfort but it's a belter for me...
I enjoyed the programme even the bit about over grown slugs.I must confess I "quite" enjoyed this, came across it while flicking through channels and as nothing else much of interest watched it. The roach fishing was interesting then it settled into the monster carp and catfish mode. I did start to get a bit bored and catfish just look like monsters. However, the Macey bloke was not as bad as all that and the three of them enjoyed themselves and I wouldn't mind their job. Bit of a change of tune from me, perhaps I am being converted! I would like to see more British normal fishing though. Is it cheating having a boat place your baits hanging off a tree?
But how easy do we want to make it, wading, climbing trees is difficult, getting some bloke to take your bait out to were you want it is just lazy. I can't fish some weedy areas, I find one I can or learn to cast. Not that bothered about it but just think its not proper angling to a small degree.I enjoyed the programme even the bit about over grown slugs.
The bit about hanging baits from tree I thought was a brilliant idea it solved the weed problem they were faced with.
Isn’t that what part of fishing is about solve and work round problems you face on the day instead of giving up and going home.
I know I have in the past climbed trees to catch fish, waded out into lakes and rivers to fish swims I can’t fish from the bank.
How many times have I thought to myself I wish I had a boat?
To be fair, I nominated that fat, mouthy bint from Essex (Gemma somebody) to plug the hole in the dam at Whaley Bridge.Its funny this Essex bashing, always seems to easy for folks living outside the place to 'have a go' from a distance
Loads of top people in Essex and a small minority give the place a bad rep, they are mad on fishing there plus there are some of the most scenic coastal areas in the country
Nobody ever admits to watching these type of programmes but there are millions out there that do. That must include those on here that seem to know all about them.I'm not sure who's in that "us". Apart from accidentally landing on some hideous tv channel for a couple of seconds, or glancing at someone else's paper, I can honestly say it's not my attention or money that makes "celebs" rich; not guilty.
Not at all. You're confusing knowing that the world of celebrity/reality exists, and being interested in it. People do lots of things that others know about but don't do themselves. You say "must" - but there's no logic in what you say.Nobody ever admits to watching these type of programmes but there are millions out there that do.

I know that necrophilia exists but I don’t subscribe to it. You are confusing knowledge and awareness with interest and enthusiasm.Nobody ever admits to watching these type of programmes but there are millions out there that do. That must include those on here that seem to know all about them.
No I would not say so, I think it's quite a clever whenever a new meathod comes out people are quick to say its cheating, swimfeeder, roach pole, it's all cheating and skilless at first.Is it cheating having a boat place your baits hanging off a tree?
But at least you still caught the fish with those methods, "who" caught the fish when a bloke in a boat put the bait in the desired spot for you. I would say he did, he did most of the hard work. Either way, I could never in my heart feel I totally caught the fish and wouldn't claim to have done so, a joint effort with credit going to the boatman at least.No I would not say so, I think it's quite a clever whenever a new meathod comes out people are quick to say its cheating, swimfeeder, roach pole, it's all cheating and skilless at first.
I've never done that and never will but its all a means to an end, I'd guess like everything else in fishing not as easy as it looks.
