Well here's mine

  1. If I don't catch a fish by sunset on friday I'll be throwing my toys out the pram
  2. Vidar will catch a bigger fish than me
  3. I will catch more fish than Vidar
  4. All my fish will be 49cm long or less
  5. We will walk 20 miles and catch the best fish where we started off
  6. My secret squirrel will be a flop
  7. Having spent hundreds of £1000's on new stuff, the winning fish will come from an old plug
  8. The Welsh will drink us under the table
  9. Lets not predict what will happen if Nathan doesn't win please
  10. Someone besides me will end up fishing Ferry Bridge out of desparation
  11. At least 1 C&R measure will be dropped into the sea
  12. Someone will dunk their camera and all the evidence to go with it.
Thats enough as we don't want the next prediction. Fire away just for a laugh.

I predict the following . . . . .

1. There will be more of a Bumbling feel about this comp, due to the strong Welsh Bumbling contingent.
2. The biggest fish will be caught at 1pm.
3. Steve Lewis will be the dark horse of the comp.
4. Team 'Young Guns' will unofficially do very well, and be able to claim a moral victory.
5. The Monday morning hangovers will be monumental !!!

My predictions;

1) It will be a total flukey win to a newby
2) It will not be a "new" style plug that will win - old skool style rules
3) The c+r winner will be bigger than the weigh in comp
4) I will do OK but not place
5) Everybody will storm the ledges friday afternoon and it will be a striper style elbow room casting over each other fighting for space contest
6) Welsh will drink the pub dry
7) The winning fish will actually come from ferrybridge lol

Here's mine:

1. Someone will get a parking ticket
2. It'll probably be me
3. I'll catch naff all
4. My mate is now coming so he'll probably catch more than me even though lure fishing is pretty new to him and his most expensive lure is about a fiver
5. I'll spend too much on shiney stuff in Reels...
6. So will everyone else
7. The rapala ClackinRaps will scare away any fish within a mile
8. Despite the inevitable failure on my part I'll still go home happy :)

Hmmmm

1. Everyone will moan about the price of parking
2. But no one will be ar*ed to park anywhere else
3. Everyone will have a laugh
4. A sly fiver on Luke or George to win might be well placed
5. Winners caught on plugs we all have, but none of the rest of us fished
6. I will see Andy for a chat at ferrybridge-and watch him catch a lunker!!
7. There will be a crowd around the harbour, beer in hand doing LRF
8. I will fall in, get wet, fall over, get muddy, get knackered, look like sh*t- And STILL have a blast!!

3. Someone will break an expensive piece of carbon....
4. I'll be able to hear the Welsh choir from up in Manchester!

There will be much vitriol & snipeing about what a hollow victory it is from elswhere, entirely missing the point of 'festival'

As a non-combatant, where are the best places to observe the rest of you suffering some of the many mishaps listed above?

I'm keen to soak up some skilled lure fishing techniques too, as I've already mastered falling over, getting wet and blanking..........

So hoping to see how successful fishing is done

and then spend the next year buying even more shiny 'must haves' despite the winning fish being caught on an old cheapy lure!

1. The winning fish will be caught on Saturday.
2. It will weigh between 6 and 8lb.
3. It will be caught on a soft plastic lure.
4. The lure will be green.
5. The lure will be more than 4" long.

One of those must be right! LOL

My track record with lure rods is not good....! The beneficiaries so far have been Nathan and **** so why should I leave out Reels & Deals?!
