you and brother bolas should get out and wet a line. i would love to fish with you guys, but i think we'd be laughing and drinking too hard to catch anytghing (besides colds).
i think you are right there tom! years ago i went beach casting off a beautiful beach near portmadoc in north wales.i had forgotten my bait so was using pieces of the sandwiches i had brought for lunch.so,i'm up to my knees in the freezing cold waves,catching nothing,knackered from casting & trying to stand up in the waves, when i noticed a young lad standing off my right shoulder.
he looked at me & said(read this in a welsh accent) "you won't bl**dy catch anything"
i said "why? don't portmadoc fish like cheese & onion sandwiches?"
he said"'course they do but 10 miles up the road in menai,there's been a tidal shift 'ere & nobody's caught anything off this beach in ten years!"
i gave him the rest of my sandwiches & left
