Eventually, a man just HAS to respond

For the record, ladies and gentlemen, lest it be somehow hijacked...

I have just learned that the "baloney" I responded to on Fishing Magic

 

http://tinyurl.com/azdnr

 

was from a piece in the Independent newspaper written by angling journo, Keith Elliott.

The press, eh? The Dangling Times yesterday, the Indie today, our pastime tomorrow...

don't i remember that just a few weeks ago you were posting links to your old mates website? when that book got a favourable mention? :)

 

oh and paul, i fished a bit in the DCR too, can't quite remember where now, was part of a filming trip about gorilla conservation, i wasn't quite as intrepid as you though, the dug outs the locals were using scared me a bit too much to relax in them :)

You clearly must be a tad delusional, jeep. Links to my old mate's website? What website? (Don't bother, I generate my own laughs.)

 

As for the Congo...

 

Well, look at this way, fishing-wise, then decide if you would decently want to effing Angle there - you know, with faffing little rods and lines (sponsored, naturally)...

 

Four million dead in the region in recent years from civil war.

 

Estimated 20,000 women and children dying every month - STILL - from its fall-out (I can access the recent World Health Org. report, courtesy of the BBC, if you like).

 

And a few media 'heroes' and, er, "Anglers", NOW, want to build their reputations and some future fat-arse incomes on effing fishing there...?

 

Get real.

not sure what the civil war has to do with anything, and do you mean the congo, or the DCR? two very different places.

 

i fished there as i was there anyway, to not to have taken advantage of it would have been a crime :)

 

i'd certainly like to 'get real' is there a course i can go on?

Both sides, Brazzaville and Kinshasa; both total horrors. One might be a little less SoCal High School Cheerleader "E-u-u-w-w-w", but decently fishing for sport...?

 

 

A course?

 

Well...

 

Think of the future.

 

Stop flying everywhere for five-pence-ha'penny.

 

Drive a car that does more miles to the gal. than, say, a Jeep.

 

Go fishing locally (use cheap bread at all times, if not cheap tackle).

 

A few pointers, then (but watch out for the rogue one that catches you, belatedly, unexpectedly, deep in the self-important arse...).
