Serious fishing ijury

Found this via a fishing website:-
I have written here before of the dangers of angling, an activity that claims more lives each year than many of the so-called extreme sports put together - skydiving, pot-holing and mountaineering not excluded.

Most angling deaths are caused by drowning. Others occur when electricity arcs from overhead power lines to the highly conductive carbon fibre rods now commonly used. Occasional tragedies and near-misses result from less predictable situations. Few of them prove as bizarre as that from which Peter Inskip, an engineer living in Uxbridge, West London, survived.

Inskip is unable to work for several weeks after catapulting a heavy, bullet-nosed fishing weight, at immense speed, deep into his chest, to lodge close to his heart. His story is a caution to all who use large weights regularly to cast great distances or to hold the bottom in deep or fast water.

Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
