I wonder if Mr Clungepipe McTwunt would have the same IP address as some of our other erudite forum members? Its not as if this is real life mate - no point hiding, say what you feel, put your real name on it, no one is going to come round your house and p*ss in your geraniums.

Garth maybe...that was the welsh fellas name wasn't it? That's where my guess would be.

I disagree. Garth, although IMHO borderline delusional and way beyond the pale in some of his actions and words, a least showed a modicum of intelligence (maybe low cunning is nearer the mark). Whoever this is demonstrates very little intellect or wit.

I could hazard a guess as to another of his pseudonyms.

I just remember Garth having a thing for Morsey as this poster appears to have as well. Maybe not though.

Yeah Garth has a thing for me alright! ;-) It was highlighted when he/she signed up for the trout fishing forum as a lady and was all over me like a rash! Luckily Vanessa Shanessa Jenkins was on hand to sort him out! :-) Haha. :-)

Xraysprex is clearly not Garth though, because Garth can actually string a paragraph together, where as Clunge struggles with CtrlC & V. But hey they are obviously living the dream.

Oh God! I just watched the (Spirit of) Lonely Water one. I'm going to be having 'those' nightmares again.

If Rivers were parks and Fishermen played cricket:
Brilliant.

The thing about this anology is it seems so incredible it could only be in some crazy imaginary world.

Oh hang on.

Interesting to hear about problems with bats and fly fishermen over on the SAFFA thread http://www.ukriversguidebook.co.uk/foru ... =3&t=53054

I came across this on the following thread http://www.talkangling.co.uk/upload/oth ... erday.html

QUOTE "I had a grebe in my peg last weekend, he was merrily going down every so often, spooking the feeding fish and somtimes comming up with a small roach or blade skimmer.

There I was, fishing away and the float positivley went under, definatley not a line bite (I was fishing paste) and lifted into what I thought was a fish. the 'fish' kited round to the left and a few seconds later up popped this f**king grebe, hooked squarley in its left leg!

It was no match for balck hydro on a pulla (!) and i managed to net him, bit my lip (they are scary looking b'stards up close, their beak looks dead sharp!), grabed the bird and unhooked it. it pecked at me a few times but as it was raining i had me jacket on and neoprene gloves so I took it like a man. I asked the chap next do if they count? He said no. I wasn't too disappointed as it did feel hollow so doubt it would have weighted much

The good thing was, he didn't bother me for the rest of the session."

At least SEIONT GWYRFAI & LLYFNI FISHING SOCIETY have the following statement on their website:

Members are reminded of the need to dispose of waste monofil properly. Please take it home. Carelessly discarded nylon can maim and kill birds and other wildlife.

I couldn't find an exact thread to put this but didn't want to start onother fisher bashing one.

"The survival of wild salmon and sea trout in the west Highlands and Islands is at a tipping point. Fish farms, once hailed as economic saviours, threaten the very existence of sustainable west coast runs of one of our most iconic species."

So now it's the salmon farmers killing off the salmon, not boaters.

There is an item on Countryfile tonight (Sunday) about the threats to salmon & trout in the Scottish Highlands.

Of course, most kayak anglers fish for the same reason that most other fishermen do: they simply enjoy it as a recreation. And kayaks offer a clean, trouble-free mode of transportation. They don't require much upkeep and don't leave any footprints behind in estuarine areas as boat propellers sometimes do.

"A kayak doesn't impact the environment negatively at all," says Routh, an environmental specialist with the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality. "There are no nasty byproducts such as fuel exhaust and because a kayak is so quiet, you can approach to within casting distance of shallow fish without sending them racing away. You can launch a kayak just about anywhere, by yourself."

Eskimos are credited with fashioning the first kayaks of sealskins stretched over driftwood frames, and this most basic of watercraft went high-tech beginning toward the latter end of the last century. That's when anglers discovered kayaks offered a great way to fish water otherwise inaccessible to heavier, bigger boats.
