I'm gagging to go but due to a promotion at work and the arrival of a new baby i just can't find the time. Growing up can be a real pain in the arse sometimes :lol:

What's worse where i'm trying to satisfy the urge to go i've been buying loads of expensive stuff that i know i won't use or is really unnecessary.

I haven't been much but like you seems the less I go the more I spend on new stuff.

I always manage to get a fair bit of fishing done in jan and feb and then as the weather starts to warm up my fishing time gets less and less. I think its because I actually don't like catching!

so like you guys I concentrate on buying and selling tat to make up for it.

I've managed one trip that was ruined by late arriving northern monkeys!!! I do have a 4 night trip in June and that's all my carping this year.

I've been much less than last year due to time constraints - though this makes put much more effort: keep walking round, trickling bait into different areas, moving constantly to showing fish, fishing the birdcage swims with 8' rod etc etc.
I've had a few and am wondering if I can keep this effort up when I get some time back, 'cause it's caught me more fish!

Managed just one trip back in January. Baby on the way & the wife is suffering from morning sickness even now at 34 weeks. Huge priority changes has meant fishing has taken a back seat although I did renew my syndicate ticket. Planning on getting out this thurs/fri after getting all my jobs done round the house. Only draw back is i have to take the dog, who hates sleeping outside & gets bored/cold easily! Definitely NOT a bivvy hound. Still, been planning it for a week now & can't wait to get down there. Just have to remember to buy my rod licences.

I'm glad it's not just me then, it seems like last year I could just sweet talk her kiss the little one, pat the dog and go for a day or two, now I can't actually see any time in the future when I will be able to go.

I suppose its all about getting your priorities right.

short morning sessions? find a water where the carp like an early feed , turn up an hour before first light and be home in time for breakfast .......

Ditto, baby on the way & tons of work required getting the house ready etc. Managed one overnighter when it was still freezing. Spent the Bank Holiday working on the house which was only interrupted by constant text messages with catch reports. Syndicate lake fished its nuts off over the weekend, more fish out in 3 days than most of last year...

Thing is fishing will always be there so a little break here and there for more important matters shouldnt be the end of the world...shouldn't.... :lol:

Rod licences bought this evening, tackle all sorted for the off in the morning. Now just need to see if I can find where I wrote the gate combination else it'll be the shortest session ever! Can't wait to get down there.

When I was unemployed five years ago I used to dream of being able to this item of tackle and that. Not having to fish with the cheapest baits, etc.

Five years later, in gainful employment like a proper grown-up and I can afford all that tackle... but much much less time to go use it! :cry:

Now I dream of the days when I was fishing four times a week...

For those who havent got out yet, dont worry you aint missed much. Untold nights for little reward on various lakes, so fickle at the moment. Frustrating as hell as not going to be able to get out much in a few weeks time ;(
