Ask George: The Canine Angling Expert & Relationship Counsellor You Can Trust

“Tight Lines!”

Dear George

I’m a middle-aged woman with rapidly fading looks and a burgeoning waistline who foolishly thought she had found true love and a lifelong soul mate, until something happened last week that bought my entire world crashing down around my ears.

I had been out for the day, doing a spot of coarse fishing on the River Swale in Yorkshire. It had been a slow day in that regard with just a few small roach and an 8oz Perch to show for my efforts. It was a bit of a chilly one so I packed my tackle away early and came home.

When I got back I called out for my partner but there was no reply. Thinking he was upstairs taking a nap I went up to the bedroom. What I saw there will remain with me until the day I die.

My boyfriend, and the man I had come to love and trust over the preceding months, was in bed with our Airedale Terrier, Bertie. They were kissing passionately and were clearly having sex.

Unseen by either of them I fled from the room in tears and rushed to the bathroom, where I vomited over and over before laying down on the floor, shaking and crying my eyes out.

I confronted them both later that evening when my lover admitted they’d been romping behind my back for months and that they wanted to be together. I threw them both out that same night and have been absolutely distraught ever since.

Please help me if you can George as I’m feeling so low and so alone right now. I’ve started drinking heavily and have even thought of taking my own life on a couple of occasions. I just don’t know which way to turn to be honest with you.

Yours Faithfully

Dear Sally

Yours is a fairly common problem, particularly at this time of year when the fish start to go off the feed due to the cooler weather.

I suggest you give the rivers a miss for the time being and opt for a stillwater venue, where there are still plenty of big Bream, Carp, and of course, Pike to be found that will readily succumb to a well-presented bait at this time of the year.

All the very best, and of course, “Tight Lines!”

“Tight Lines!”


Dear George

I wonder if you can help me with this one. My good friend and fellow entertainer, Robbie Williams, and myself are planning a week away from showbiz at the end of this month to go Pike fishing on Loch Lomond in Scotland.

Given that the weather conditions are likely to be pretty unfavourable and decent catches at a premium I was wondering whether you could advise us on rigs, bait, hot spots etc.

I was thinking that maybe a small live bait, perhaps a roach or perch, trolled behind a rowed dinghy, might be the way forward given the huge surface area to be covered. Robbie’s largely in agreement but thinks that a spinner or plug might be more productive.

Your advice would be most welcome George.

Yours Faithfully

PS. Try ledgering a medium dead bait, a mackerel or herring, in a sheltered inlet, using a 60lb BS line and a quality wire trace. PAAAARRRP!!! Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
