Make sure you have a baitrunner set, or that your rod is secure,

Wouldn't fancy hooking into a coked up catfish down there - both things that shouldn't be there!

I've never fished down there, but the line (no pun)

Certainly explains the actions of many Londoners I've met on my occasional visits.
