Evening all! Apologies for not updating sooner, life has gotten manic all of a sudden, I've only managed to wet a line once recently! I've managed to get 2 posts up recently.

One was an interesting break from the norm, and the other was the result of some on-going investigative work in my region! Both worth a read, have a look here - Paul on Coarse Fishing

Evening all! Despite the absolutely disgusting weather I have managed to get out and wet a line. Found a great little lake (only 9 pegs) half a mile up the road. Loads of silver fish! Was great to be out catching a few. You can have a read about it here - Paul on Coarse Fishing

Evening all! Have recently put up 2 posts. 1 involved fishing a great silver fish water, which is absolutely stacked full of quality silver fish. The other was a very fishy looking canal which I plan to spend a lot of time on this summer.

You can have a read about both here - Paul on Coarse Fishing

No worries, I'm currently writing up a backlog. Recently acquired a puppy and puppy training takes up a lot of time it seems! Thanks for reading though.

Morning folks, just had time while the puppy is asleep to get a new blog online. I've got another one which will be going online soon too, just need to wait until he's asleep until I publish it. You can have a read of this newest post here - Paul on Coarse Fishing

Evening all, thought I'd nip online while the power remains on (thunder and lightning in my neck of the woods killing the power!). Just got a new fishing blog online, this time it was a trip to Revels, a great venue with loads of lakes to choose from. Managed a solid bag of silvers and a fair few carp too!

I haven't managed to get much fishing done recently. Apparently getting married demands a lot of time, planning and attention! Now that'll all done, I have just managed to write and upload one of my last sessions I had on a local water.

Why do you post at all?

Nobody post back ain't that a statement?

The forum is not based on individual achievement, if you don't add to what other people can learn without clicking on your link then there is no point to the "forum".

Get your recognition from actual readers, that might help!.

Hi Denzinho,
Whilst I have a certain sympathy with your viewpoint it should be pointed out that people sometimes have a not unreasonable aversion to putting their angling life out there for others to pick over and criticise - as can happen on this forum.
Some contributors use the blog format and facilities to tell their own story in their own way without fear of interruption or deviation. They are still open to criticism by way of comments on their blogspace - but this tends to be limited just to the people who read their blog - not to the whole FM audience!
An example would be the young matchman Frederico - who writes an excellent account of his trials, tribulations and successes in learning his craft on the local match circuit. He doesn't post a lot on the general sites - when he does he mainly asks good questions to help him (and others) learn from the more experienced members.

Some members of FM use their own Blogspot to host their blog - sometimes because their own site has more advanced facilities for graphics and links than those provided by the FM system - an example would be the Blog developing by pjcoarsefishing which provides Accessibility advice for Disabled Anglers in Lancashire with maps of waters and links to the fishery sites at - PJ Coarse Fishing Blog | PJ coarse fishing – Fishing venues – Fishing for disabled – my fishing experiences – Fishing is more than just catching fish - a really informative site building-up with lots of info for local disabled anglers. It's a great shame that there is no easy way this will transfer onto the FM Blog system - unless anyone knows how to?

The blog kept by anglerpaulm is a kind of diary, in that he's recording the sessions and trips he's had, tackle shops visited, etc, I don't know how old he is but I can imagine myself doing exactly this sort of blog - before too long - because with the advancing years I can't remember where I was last week - let alone at the beginning of the season!

I hope that helps put things in perspective and helps you realise why some people use their blogs the way they do. ;)

Tight Lines! :thumbs:

I have just read your private message greenie, and I wanted to apologize for such a narrow view point. I figured if I apologize on the thread it's self it would be more visible to everyone that think I am narrow minded which sometimes I can be.


I apologize to you also Paulm.
