Well, I hope everyone is enjoying the fishing, this sunshine autumn has certainly been good for us. I wonder how many of you have come in contact with the following and hows best to deal with it whilst remaining polite. There I was yesterday locked into watching the tip, enjoying the sunshine with a slight breeze in the air when suddenly from behind me a voice boom out, "doing any good,?" Well not for the first time I nearly jumped out of my skin, craned my next back to see it was someone I didn't know and ended up in a five minute conversation I didn't want. Back to the fishing, and half an hour later another booming voice from the background. Didn't jump this time but got engaged in a conversation where I was again asked how I was doing. When I mentioned I had had a slow morning the said boomer took the queue to get his phone out and give me a blow by blow picture account of what he had caught as if it was a kind of competition. Now don't get me wrong, I know that we have a social element to fishing but I have noticed a competitive element that not only interrupts your enjoyment but is also a flaming nuisance. Anyone found a way of dealing with the interruption. I am beginning to think it might be better to tell one and all and whoever that you have done brilliantly as this statement always seems to have the effect of them sodding off quickly.
