I saw this in one of Mick's posts and it reminded me of an incident on a nocturnal trip with Keith and Kevin the other night. We were fishing a little spot I must have fished many dozens of times before I reached even 10 years of age....having a great laugh and all of us have had big specimen fish in our days but somehow where like kids learning all over again with this mega light gear, I love it....
I was laughing at how much fun it all was and I think it was mistaken for laughing AT what we were doing. But actually I was having that much fun I couldn't contain myself.
Now that's quality. Forget the fish, I was de-stressing big time. A great tonic and no, we didn't get the target fish but tomorrow's another day.
That's LRF for me. Fun. No machismo, just a crack in the middle of a heavy week at work and some fresh air.
This thing has got legs, not just from a serious angling perspective, but from the fun angle. I hope we can spread the word.
