moore82 Posted October 11, 2020 Report Share Posted October 11, 2020 Here's a question. Do you think you can get worse at fishing? I think back to fishing as a teenager and even into my 20's and I found catching carp relatively easy, that may sound arrogant but to be blunt, I did. My bait worked, my rigs worked, I read the water well and caught fish, simple as. These days I feel like I know more about the sport, my rigs are tidier, my tackle is more appropriate, my bait is better and fresher yet 9 times out of 10 I blank. Tried and tested methods in productive swims and nothing. I certainly feel different nowadays, lacking confidence, probably over thinking things, putting pressure on myself. I find the balancing act of parenting, work, marriage, schooling, etc .... very hard which no doubt adds to it all also. If I'm honest I'm not really enjoying fishing at present, I primary go to catch fish, so blank after blank is just rubbish. Thoughts, opinions, suggestions welcome .
