Chub, Perch, Roach And Some Thoughts For Consideration (1073)

If you’re a regular visitor to my blog then you’ll be aware of the new format which involves text and a video from my YouTube channel. Since discovering iMovie it has given my film-making a new lease of life.

Recording on my iphone, it’s convenient, the quality is good and it’s quick, so it certainly ticks the boxes as far as I’m concerned. There are limitations compared to my camcorder but they are few and far between and on the occasions that I need the extra capacity, as was the case with the recent pied wagtail roost, I switch. It really is as simple as that.

The angling session that you can view below is in fact the last one of 2018. It is ideal to have a blog that is so up to date that you write and publish the day’s events in the dying minutes before midnight.

However, it also brings pressure and the last thing you want is for your blog to become a burden. Imagine being so tied to a time schedule that you have to go home just so you can publish an entry. That’s not what it should become. You should always be the master of the blog not the other way round.

I find that by having a few blog entries stacked up and ready to go that it is far more pleasurable. Plus the majority have no time urgency about them anyway.

Back to 2018 though and my first fish of the year, on January 1, was a chub and likewise my final one on December 31. I managed 284 sessions, mostly short ones, but nevertheless all enjoyable.

I’m looking forward very much to what 2019 has to offer and I hope that you have a great year as well.
