The caption reads, and I've copied it directly, "nothing more depressing than the photo album of a single species angler."

Single species anglers; I might just as well write Carp Anglers, are a relatively modern development, a manifestation of instant gratification and the rise of the commercial fishery. It is, therefore, the reason that the photo albums of these guys (and gals) are rather one dimensional. After all, there are only so many poses you can use to present a wet fish to the camera - photos very quickly become samey.
|25 years later and I'm still using that same pose. I don't care how|
arty - farty the photographer, there are a very finite number of
poses open to the average angler.
|Would I wish to change anything? No, I don't believe I would.|
Memories of a particular stage in my angling journey - Carp fishing in that exciting period 1983/84
As they were the target, is it any surprise that my photos reflected this?

May I end this drivel by stating my thanks to Bureboy for the spark that set the ball rolling - cheers!
My only other option was wild flowers - don't go there!!!
