Beware of trees

Just a warning to people - as it' supposed to be summer people may have forgotten that rivers can and do carry all sorts of nasty floating debris out to sea.

The river Tawe in Swansea is in full spate and loads of trees and branches have been washed out - no doubt it's the same all around the coast.

So if we EVER have any nice days keep you eyes peeled!!!

yer, i fished the upper parts of the Bristol channel from the shore on Thursday and there was loads of branches, driftwood and other debris in the channel that wouldn't do your leg or transom any good if you hit them good day out though i caught 3 nice bass.

One good thing about living in a country with no trees is that hitting a floating log is not a major risk
