With all the talk about surf launches it got me thinking . In respect to leashes etc, leashed to what to whom and the safety aspects of it all. :?:
Bloody oath it was by the bloody sound of it,occy said:Yeh Troppo, I have lost one pair of good sunglasses this way, on a perfectly brilliant flat water day. I now have a glasses leash, so lesson learned there.
But that poor bloody bugger with the bloody rod and reel (and bloody mobile phone). What a bloody dropkich eh? You have to ask the bloody question, what was he bloody doing answering a bloody phone whilst bloody fishing anyway. Unless it was a bloody mate telling him to come over his way because the bloody fish were bloody on, I reckon bloody mobiles should be bloody banned (like on bloody golf courses) when bloody fishing, except for bloody emergencies.
Bloody hell that was a bloody effort.
Occy is dead right you know! One time I was a couple of k off Margate, and the weather was far from flat. There I was trolling around, and I could feel this bloody vibration in the hull. Bloody phone. Anyhow, opened the hatch, which is something I dont like to do when there is weather about, and it was bloody werk. Gah! "Andy, can you be in Kelvin Grove in about .....an hour ago?." ......Grrr mutters I (respect for employer disconnects mouth from feelings) ....thank God. Can you hear the waves, I said....Im out in the bay, and at this rate, it will take me about five fffing hours to get back in!!
The only reason I take a mobile phone with me is just incase I find a body floating face down in the water, and the fish are really on..... sorry, so that I can call the emergency services I mean...
Cheers all Andybear :lol:
