The weather has finally broken so I though that I would go fishing today :D :D :D So I set off early this morning things were going well had a few over 2lbs then at 3pm some rumbles !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! then a big bang thunder and all the bigger fish went to ground and only the small ones would bite, this is the third time in the last month and a half this has happened :angry: :angry: :angry:

The only thing to do was come home. Can`t control the weather but wish I could at times?????

It is not always like that. I had one of my best nights Carping in the middle of a raging thunderstorm that passed right over me; with lightening strikes all around me; in the days when I used fibreglass rods. The Carp suddenly started feeding about an hour before the storm and were almost climbing up my rods during the storm. I was soaked but very happy (although a little scared at times).

I was a Meteorologist in the Royal Navy then, and thought it was something to do with the rising air pressure.

I was fishing a large reservoir when a storm passed overhead. Torrential rain, thunder and lightning.

One lightning strike came to earth in the middle of the reservoir about quarter of a mile away, A few minutes later there were loads of gulls on the water at that spot, I presume feeding on dead or stunned fish.

A fibreglass rod isn't going to save your life if your rod is out in the rain is it? It's going to be wet from top to bottom and your hands will be holding that rod. Carbon just happens to be a GOOD conductor, especially when there are pylons etc around. I'm pretty sure wet fibreglass will be almost as dangerous.

Yes i agree if it had been raining i would have stopped as you quite rightly put it electricity will use the water on the rod

Strike a light ! Not many people can casually say they had a few roach over 2lbs! Out of interest was it loch or river?
