Antis – isn’t their case meant to be stronger than this?

Horror story just in from a sea fishing acquaintance.

Anti-fishing protestors descend upon participants in a sea fishing match in northern England last week and win hearts and minds with some dazzling rhetoric in favour of animal welfare empty bags of rubbish at the feet of several anglers before stepping back to photograph them. As I write, the local media are no doubt being invited to consider the environmental wantonness of the typical fisherman, who leaves a trail of litter wherever he goes.

Thankfully, one angler recovered his composure quickly enough to photograph these rascals at work. Good move.

He’s now waiting to see if an anti-fishing scare story actually appears in the press before he contacts the latter himself. Bad move.

As several people have suggested to him, this is one of the few times in fishing where a pre-emptive strike is absolutely the right play.
