what have you caught besides fish

Recommended Posts

I've landed a white plastic patio chair on 6lb sensor!

I've had old boots, a kettle, loads of sanitary towels, some still full of fresh claret!

I've had line with weights and feeders attached, plastic bags and a horse shoe.

 

If I have a think there will be other things also.

 

Oh, forgot to mention a disterssing catch recently, I was sat watching my m8 trotting outside a sewage outlet and he hooked and landed a hard human turd!

The worst of it was he actually bit the line off with his teeth FFS!

eeeewwww

Forgot to mention the bird life i've hooked up with, a swan, a duckling, a water hen and seagulls.

The strangest thing i've caught was an old metal chimney that had obviously come off a narrowboat, not sure the rest of the boat was down there though. biggrin.png


 

 

Eat right, stay fit, die anyway.

A Duck when it grabbed my bunch of maggots & managed to land a method feeder on a cygnets back - and when reeling it in pulled a clump of its down out leaving a nice bald patch. Just glad I didn't have to land it as Mum was getting quite agitated.
