    Default discarded line and lost end tackle on islands

    Discarded line and rubbish on the bank is disgraceful but what about those commercials with islands on?,

    Me and my mates had to endure a full days fishing last season sat oposite a poor squawking moor hen - it was obviously very distressed suspended upside down with mono round its legs and the farmer didnt give a flying f**k!

    It really spoiled our day it was awful

    He was more guilty in my opinion than all the dickhead anglers not removing all the line which inevitably gets caught on these features, its a hazard for all wildlife isnt it?

    I think you missed the point Chef. Anglers are obviously going to snag up on features like islands, it`s inevitable. However surely it`s the responsibilty of those who own the water to tidy it up or at least do something when wildlife is endangered. That`s all the OP is saying.

    Yeah, and he could make a killing on Ebay

    Seriously though, it should me made law that the land owner take responsibility for the Damage caused to wildlife by litter that is not removed from areas out of bounds to visiting Anglers (All Anglers leaving rubbish on the banks should be hung, drawn and Quartered! Sorry, just my opinion )

    No i never missed the point about responsible fishery owners,it was his comments about the dickheads who snag the islands that that i could,nt quite understand!,We,ve all caught a far bank feature at some point,even with practice and a line clip ,accidents happen,so if he,s saying that anyone who ever gets caught up snaps off is a dickhead ,then probably every angler is a dickhead....Most fishery owners have small rowing boats and retrieve lost and snagged tackle,why didnt he swim across and free the moorhen??

    A few years ago on one of our local lakes someone took a push bike over to the Island and leant it against the no swimming sign! So funny

    Another funny story!I was fishing a lake with a small island about 30m away,my top kit was not pushed on the pole far enough as i was playing a carp it came off and said carp swam attatched to my top kit to the island.There was a small boat in the next peg so i started to row out to the island ,i got about 10ft from the bank when it started to sink,i ended up dragging it back to shore and going for a swim!! October is not the best time to go for a swim in you,re boxers!!!!

    I bet that was a massive amount of effort from somebody... but well well worth it!

    I think that's the kinda thing that would make me giggle to myself for a full session!
