The unexpected questions
« on: 26/09/2023 at 21:27 »
I was asked a couple of unexpected questions this week by a work colleague which I thought were worth sharing.
On the face of it, both questions seem quite innocuous too,  that was until I tried to answer them.

The first was 'how many different species have you caught on the fly :?' with the follow up  question ' and which was your favourite :?'

The answer to both was - I genuinely don't know  :z18 I shared this with some friends and in part the reason why I found them so hard to answer is that every fish is memorable, every day a treasure, every trip a journey into the unknown. I'll only know the answers when I hang my rods up for good, which I hope is many, many seasons from now.

I'm in the same boat as yourself on the first question. Christ only knows 😅

On the second however its an easy answer for me. My first ever Giant Snake head (and pretty much everyone since the first tbh). 7.5kg on a surface frog popper on a 6#.

Whilst I've caught countless other species and much bigger fish over the years. These fish both drove me mad and made me smile in equal measures!
