    Subforum for Fishing Enthusiasts?

    Several members are fishing enthusiasts and would like to see a fishing sub forum.

    TD has a scuba diving sub forum.

    Could we have a Fishing sub forum where all the various fishing OPs could be placed?

    Trolling allowed.

    Do we have enough anglers here for a forum ?

    How about expanding it a bit?
    Fishing - boating- yachting- etc
    Anything on/in water




    Maybe a whaling section

    Good point. Maybe a name change to the Scuba Diving forum would be simplest.

    Something like, Fishing, Diving, Boating?

    I reckon any future forum should be confined to sports fishing and exclusive of repeticious recounts of blokes winching in giant catfish in fishing parks. I know it is probably exciting for the non- sports fishermen the first time, but that kind of thing is like shooting ducks in a barrel. -- boring..... Theres a heck of a lot more to learn about fishing in Thailand than just tourist fishing impoundments.

    Agree. A title for sport fishing. I do like to winch in those big Thailand river catfish though so let's not prohibit OPs related to it.

    "Messing about in Boats"


    The Rat sculled smartly across and made fast. Then he held up his forepaw as the Mole stepped gingerly down. `Lean on that!' he said. `Now then, step lively!' and the Mole to his surprise and rapture found himself actually seated in the stern of a real boat.

    `This has been a wonderful day!' said he, as the Rat shoved off and took to the sculls again. `Do you know, I`ve never been in a boat before in all my life.'

    `What?' cried the Rat, open-mouthed: `Never been in a--you never--well I--what have you been doing, then?'

    `Is it so nice as all that?' asked the Mole shyly, though he was quite prepared to believe it as he leant back in his seat and surveyed the cushions, the oars, the rowlocks, and all the fascinating fittings, and felt the boat sway lightly under him.

    `Nice? It's the ONLY thing,' said the Water Rat solemnly, as he leant forward for his stroke. `Believe me, my young friend, there is NOTHING--absolute nothing--half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. Simply messing,' he went on dreamily: `messing--about--in--boats; messing----'

    `Look ahead, Rat!' cried the Mole suddenly.

    It was too late. The boat struck the bank full tilt. The dreamer, the joyous oarsman, lay on his back at the bottom of the boat, his heels in the air.

    `--about in boats--or WITH boats,' the Rat went on composedly, picking himself up with a pleasant laugh. `In or out of 'em, it doesn't matter. Nothing seems really to matter, that's the charm of it. Whether you get away, or whether you don't; whether you arrive at your destination or whether you reach somewhere else, or whether you never get anywhere at all, you're always busy, and you never do anything in particular; and when you've done it there's always something else to do, and you can do it if you like, but you'd much better not. Look here! If you've really nothing else on hand this morning, supposing we drop down the river together, and have a long day of it?'

    I reckon you are compromising too much there Norton.

    Not sure about the rest of the world, but fishing is the biggest participator sport in Australia according to some resarch stats I read in a fishing magazine a while back.

    I am pretty sure that even those members up in Issarn would have some pretty interesting fish stories to tell if allowed to go for it and not be overshadowed by the fishing park tourist stories.

    Better than taking on big vicious animals that can rip you to shreds with a single whack of a penis-tipped tentacle!

    You are as usual quite mistaken, I have no idea nor any interest at all in catching crabs.

    In nearly 6 years we've had now many fishing threads? 6?

    Seems hardly worth it when there is a sports forum already.

    Obviously a clean living type who never frequents some of the establishments we hear so much about in this forum!

    A fishing forum would be a good idea, and it's a big enough subject to warrant it's own section rather than being lumped in with anything else.
