At one time angling was the biggest participant sport in the UK, although hard to believe more people would go fishing than paid to watch football matches. Its popularity has wained somewhat, especially amongst the younger generation whose lives seem to be completely controlled by their mobile phones and social media. The majority of them will never experience the beauty of our great outdoors, will never see the astonishing range of wildlife living in and around our rivers and lakes and will never understand the peace and solitude that a day sitting on the side of a lake or river offers. Sadly, that's their loss but for those of us who have been bitten by the fishing bug this website has plenty of information related to fishing both here and overseas carp fishing.

This encourages the bee to return to flowers containing caffeinated nectar rather than visiting those that offer equal or lower quality sustenance, but do not contain the drug. The researchers from the University's Laboratory of Apiculture and Social Insects (LASI) set up two false flowers at the university in Falmer, just outside the English city of Brighton. Both glass bowls contained a mixture of sucrose and water, but only one was caffeinated. Small identification numbers were glued on to the backs of those insects exposed to caffeine. The tests were conducted both outside in the grounds of the university and inside glass observation hives in their laboratory. As Ratnieks explained, "the research involved setting up syrup feeders and training honey bees from hives to visit those feeders; and then the bees that visited those feeders had little numbers put on them, and then we could then see how many trips they made per hour and also, most importantly, did they make their waggle dances when they returned to the hive?" Plants such as citrus and coffee beans produce caffeine as a sour deterrent against plant-devouring insects, such as caterpillars. But the research suggests they also produce the compound to trick bees into pollinating them. In the tests the caffeine caused honey bees to forage more and made them four times as likely to direct their friends to the caffeinated forage using their 'waggle dance' technique. Previous research by the team had showed a similar effect by increasing the sugar concentration in a syrup feeder containing artificial nectar being visited by marked bees. "What we found was that caffeine would have the effect of more sugar," said Ratnieks. "The one that did have caffeine attracted more bees, but in particular the bees who were foraging made more dances, about four times as many dances." In some instances bees returned to sites where they had previously found caffeinated nectar even after the feeder had run dry.

Additionally, the bugs that the fish feed on are more likely to be active at less windy times, too.
Bugs are one of the most common irritations you are able to run into on the fishing trip, so make sure to pack insect repellent! Different repellents can be more, or less effective depending on the local insect population. If you are visiting a new location for the first time, try to bring along several kinds of repellent. Take note of which ones are most effective, so that you can be prepared next time!
If it's really windy when you are casting your fly fishing rod, put a little tension at risk right before your lure hits water, and this will help to keep your line straight and stop it from getting caught on any obstacles because the wind is blowing. You could also have to keep placing a bit of tension on the line as you are fishing to avoid the wind causing too much slack in your line.
Before fishing, you need to understand some basic procedures. Become familiar with certain tasks, including adding the fishing bait around the hooks, casting out your line, and tying knots. Learning these basic procedures is essential if you are wanting to learn how to fish within the most effective manner to be able to have success.
