Challenge

Motivation 10

I relish the opportunity to present a fly in difficult circumstances and conditions. I do not want easy or groomed fishing. Big fish are important to me, but it is the circumstances under which it is caught that appeals most. I fish very light tackle too. Hooking the fish is just the beginning...

Motivation 123

I fly fish for the challenge. Whilst catching a lot of fish is not important, the quality of the fish is more important & a 7oz wild brownie that fights like a trooper is far better than a 12lb stock fish in a stew pond.

When pleasure fishing, catching bigger fish is important and I want to relax then. Match fishing is very different.

Motivation 48

Catching fish as such is not so important. What is important is that there should be fish rising or coming to the fly to maintain an interest and sense of challenge.

Match fishing isn't relaxing; I find it very intense and challenging and feel tired from the concentration on the night after the match/competiton.

Motivation 68

Whilst I do not feel the need to catch plenty of fish or one large one, the requirement is to catch something. Even if I only catch one small fish, then the effort that I have put in is worthwhile. It is also important to me that I practice "catch and release", as I get as great a feeling of releasing the fish as I do catching it.

Motivation 69

To me, fishing provides the opportunity to meet with friends and target fish, it is not important that I catch large fish however it is important that I catch, not necessarily for the pot!
