I have been asked to write about my thoughts on short session fishing and watercraft. Now I don’t profess to be an expert on watercraft by any stretch of the imagination. I think of watercraft as being that 6th sense; understanding the carp, knowing where they are when there are no signs of activity and almost being able to pre-empt or predict where they are going to feed. This is an area of weakness for me as I can recount many occasions where I have got this wrong. However one thing that I really enjoy with my fishing is observation.
