    Angling then more angling
  1. Dear All, There's a rumour going round that a Kingfisher done it in. Made 250,000 consecutive dives. Regards, Lee.
  2. Now why didn't I think of that? Beats going to work if it took off. I bet FACT are trembling in their long johns. Regards, Lee.
  3. Dear Mike, Keeping well I hope. You said; “The BCU employs numbers to negotiate with government, the RSPB the same. What does angling get? Not a lot to be frank, but then in this life generally you get what you pay for and until more anglers see the need to pay for governence and its function in the modern world, we will all continue to get very little.” And that Mike, is what I banged endlessly on about a couple of years ago. I won’t go into it all again now but you know what I mean. Angling Unity? We actually already have it and have had it all along. You see it in the
  4. Dear All, A few years ago now I was fishing a very flooded river Trent in the type of flood where the river had burst it’s banks in places and was flowing out into the fields. Sat there whilst watching the tips of my rods, I began to hear the bellowing of a cow that appeared to be getting louder and louder when suddenly the cow, a fully grown Friesian came floating past in mid river twirling round and round in the current. Poor thing must have fell into the river somewhere up stream. Then not five minutes later, a whole garden shed, still on its wooden base came floating past complete w
  5. If you go to; http://yosemite.epa.gov/oar/globalwarming....tent/index.html Which is the US Environmental Protection Agency web site, you’ll find out what the Americans think about this problem and more importantly, what’s being done about it over there. When you’ve read it, will someone please post exactly what our government is doing perhaps via our own environment agency or in legislative moves through Parliament? Regards, Lee.
  6. Dear Gerry, If one is fishing from a boat so generally don't need to lug the lure box around, an old pine wardrobe houses loads of lures. Regards, Lee.
  7. Dear Newt, Don't be going over your "Howdee Doodee" greetings speech for the time when you actually expect to meet a EA enforcement officer in the UK. They have become rarer than a flying turtle. Regards, Lee.
  8. Dear All, Years ago I remember watching an edition of "Question Time" shot in Newcastle when Margaret Beckett was on the panel. There was very high unemployment up there back then and the Tories were in power. Invariably the question was posed about local high unemployment when a bricklayer from the audience asked the panel what they were going to do about the problem. When it was Beckett's turn to give her opinion I expected the usual blurb where she would have tried to score points over her Tory panel members. Instead, she amazingly told the brickie that there were loads of jobs f
  9. Dear All, As an SACN member I received this from Leon today and thought it most worthy of a mention here. " To all SACN Members, I had a phone call from John Leballeur, Chairman of the Bass Anglers Sportfishing Society (BASS) on Sunday Night. He was phoning to congratulate us on being awarded this year's Conservation Trophy at the Society's AGM. Previous winners of the prestigous BASS Conservation Trophy have been people and organisations that I've greatly admired for their dedication to the cause of Marine Conservation, and it is their record of dedication and achievment t
  10. What would a 50lb 12oz pike look like? About as big as Nev Fickling in a pantomime pike suit perhaps? Shame the bloke didn't have one of the pike "names" with him, it might be believed then. Regards, Lee.
  11. Dear Peter, (Waller) I have this reoccurring vision of you Peter opening up closets or cupboard doors in the dimly lit half light jumping back shrieking loudly because you see a Countryside Alliance activist sitting inside! When are you going to move on from your seemingly fanatical anti-CA one man and his boat campaign? The CA has only ever claimed to represent their own membership’s interests and whether you like it or not Peter that DOES include its "angling" membership. Admittedly their numbers is not akin to the FACT numbers but none the less they do represent tens of thousands
  12. Come on now. Wasn't that photo taken 25 years ago when you were 65?? Regards, Lee.
  13. I once knew a bloke who ended up getting a divorce because his wife wouldn't place the tin cans in the cupboards labels facing outwards. I guess a fixation with buckets is a similar thing. Me? I'm obsessed with purchasing second hand cane rods which I whittle down to a point none stop until they are all gone. Unlike some who become obsessed with writing the reading proper. Regards, Lee.

  15. Dear Gozzer, It won't do you any favours mate the next time a spaceship follows you home from the pub!! Regards, Lee.
