It has to be said that, occasionally, the Anglers' Net forum members throw up some real gems, and we have Chris Plumb to thank for this latest one.
With all the talk of nuclear and wind power being the future, maybe the boffins in charge have missed a trick. Could electric eels, in fact, be the way forward?
As Chris said when he posted this to our forums....."Only in Japan!".
This certainly wouldn't happen in my household - not only would the misses hit the roof, but we're not allowed to keep eels these days, anyway!
