Who says fishing is not a dangerous sport Andy, I did a similar thing on Loch Ronald but only went upto my bollox, very scary when your on your own pale and after my accident this weekend it shows that pike fishing on your own is very danerous. Hope your better now pal Wink

First off, the words...morcombe...and cockle pickers springs to mind..and secondly, thank F**k you managed to get your,from the sounds of it, sorry looking self out that predicament.
On a plus side, that piece of writing definately merits some kind of magazine publishment, worded extremely well,and a fantastic,if somewhat "gulp worthy" piece of work.
The blank wouldnt bother me in the slightest, the fact you are here to be able to write anything at all is a miracle in its self.
Next time,I can well believe you may take a few moments to compose yourself and make a slightly better judgement of the situation.
Cheers fella,and ffs keep safe Wink

what an amazing story andy, and like has been said, thank goodness your ok and in one piece, your spot on that sometimes the mind works in different tangents to how you would expect it to and in a moment you can get yourself in serious sh1t.
got to echo what nixon says, that is one hell of a write up of your day and worthy of being seen by a much larger audience. you should consider sending that off to some of the bigger publications, its bum on the edge of the seat stuff, and if nothing else gives a timely warning to others to be careful out there
glad your ok and here to tell the tale
Respect mate

Andy,

the way you have written your experience was and can only be described as gripping. the skill you have allowed me to be there next to you.

Glad that you are OK but honestly this is the most gripping thing I have read on this forum and you really do have a very special skill with your writing.

BIG Respect

Peace and love......

I read another one of your stories on a certain predator forum a while ago, the one regarding an area in the undergrowth resembling a crime scene, should post that'un on here for the lads to read thru.

good read. there is a place near me that has had a few dead bodies draged out of it, unfortunately most of them fishermen. its a fairly spooky place as it is, all surrounded by trees and memorials to these unlucky people. i always have the vision of dragging in a "snag" there and just seeing a weed covered hand braking the surface or something. especialy when im there night fishing on my own.
as for the shoes i was having a conversation with a mate the other day about where they all come from. after the river has been in flood you always see shoes stuck in the bushes and on the bank and stuff, its always just one odd shoe too..... where do they come from?

A couple of great reads there Andy. I have done the same thing with the mud but only up to my knees. It is a scary thing and eaves you feeling very inadequate! As for the crime scene, it does leave you wondering doesn't it. scratch

Andy ...

you have a skill there buddy and that cannot be denied....

A new thread should be posted, with none of the usual sideways banter but for true stories that you/we have encountered...


Just a thought

Thats the one andy, almost has the basis for a lynda la plante novel.
Who ever said fishing was dull and boring should be tied to a post and flogged vigourously.
