The second phase is far more pronounced and critical (if you are to progress to stage three!) - can I catch the biggest fish?
At stage three; the previous two levels have been dealt with and life is good. Yes, of course it's great to catch a big fish but, when all said and done, it is only a fish and the enjoyment must come from the methods and tactics that were employed to secure the prize!

I sincerely hope that I've reached level three - those boilies are a very special link to a period of lunacy that will never be relived. Gadget and I are back down on Wednesday - so here's hoping.
