Casting Donk 12th Sept

Postby Rushy » 12 Sep 2010, 19:36

Well, the great, the good and the confused gathered on St.Annes beach for some long overdue (for some...well...me!) casting tuition from John250.
I'm a expert exponent of the overhead thump and was hoping to get past the magical barrier that had always eluded me......70yds! :bleh:

Image

Image

John showing us how's it SHOULD be done......
Image

Image

Nige showing how it's NOT done! :lol: :lol: :lol:
Image

There was a good gathering of Donkers and Angling Addicts learning new techniques, helping each other out and taking the piss :thumb:
Image

As to be expected, there were a few crackoffs and birdies, with TerryG being no exception...you can spot him on the horizon retrieving his lost ball.......
Image

Bit closer.....
Image

The walk of shame..... ;) :lol: :lol:
Image


Here he is...good boy...drop!!
Image

I'm surprised Nige can catch with the size of them hands! :shock: no wonder all his fish look small :lol: :lol:
Image

Andy Nuttall got in the act with a couple of 'accidents'

Image

All too soon, it was over....I know I found it really helpful and it's amazing how an hour or so of expert tuition under a trained eye can improve your casting, top notch stuff and a big thanks to John for his time :thumb:

Daz persuaded us to fish Fairhaven for High Water, which was probably a good decision as it was blowing a gale and at least this venue afforded some degree of comfort and shelter

Image

Tony and Nige cranked up the gas on his stove and got the brews going...good man!
Image

Some dude had been handing out box stickers ;) :lol: :lol:
Image


The food as usual was quality with Ally & Tony providing Bacon and sausage buns and some superb steak canadians. Terry wasn't shy in coming forward, watch them fingers Tez :lol:
Image

It was good to meet Billy finally! He's not as ugly as Daz says he is! Top man and good to meet Wendy too :thumb:
Image


Fishing was slow but the craic and banter was quick and fierce as usual. I don't know about anyone else but the fishing is secondary to the laughs & pisstaking really! (ok...I blanked again!)
Image

Tony scabbed a flounder as we were leaving, spawny get as usual! :bleh:
Image

Another great day out, with plenty of laughs, good food, good company and a few lessons learned.....don't cycle past anglers when they're eating steak canadians, the oil slick will make you fall off your bike! :oops: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

round 2

I turned up in the carpark about 08.30 for the donkers casting day,some of the lads were already on the beach pumping worm.tony c was there in his re vamped van but i have a feeling that his brush with the pikeys has rubbed off on him because his van was not what it used to be

Image

in fact there were quite a few vans in the carpark, terrys paedo mobile

Image

rons (rabs)

Image

nige,s you can allways trust nige to go the extra mile,not content with a stove and a bed he always has to go 1 step further

Image

anyway rushy came straight from work and never had time to change out of his uniform

Image

and i thought dave flearider was a bit over dressed for the occasion

Image

anyhow we went down to the beach for a bit of casting practice,when Daz came back from pumping bandicoot could not believe his eyes

Image his worms were so big

we decided to go to fairhaven to do a bit of fishing but first daz tried to get a cup of tea from rons van

Image

but ron was having none of it so daz went home to get his fishing gear

Image

and by and by we went to the fairhaven carpark,some nice looking young women were walking past and terry made a bit of a show of himself

Image

i never caught any fish but i did have one of niges frothy coffee,s

Image
and got myself a WSF t Shirt

Image

so it was a great day after all
