    Default The things we bring home.

    The other day after suffering another total blank I simply dumped my gear on the garage floor thinking that I'd clear it up the following morning.
    Later that night After feeling a little less tired I decided to do the job as I had bait that may go off
    Or even wscape before morning.
    On opening my rucksack I was startled when out flew not one but two big brown moths that went berserk in the garage.minutes later they were followed by a big black beetle and a bluebottle.
    It made me think just how often anglers bring home unwanted guests like I did the other day.
    Anyone experienced such occasions, mice perhaps or something even bigger?

    It's amazing what the lingering smell of snotties attracts Mick...................

    I managed to bring home about 200-300 ants a few weeks ago, they'd transferred to my rod quiver.

    I brought er indoors home once and ended up married. Maybe ants, beetles and moths were a better bet.

    Spiders,loads of them.Seem to crawl into all of the tackle and then explore the car when I driving home so the next time I get in it there are cobwebs everywhere and they have the habit of suddenly dropping off the sun visor straight into your line of vision and scaring the c**p out of you.

    I haven't managed to bring much back, that I know of, other than those weird little cocoons that seem to love the folds and seams of luggage.

    The best/worst kit bag stowaways I ever heard of was a mate that managed to unknowingly bring home a nest of baby camel spiders in a rucksack. As it was full of stuff he wouldn't need in the UK, he chucked it in an airing cupboard on his return to the UK. A couple of weeks later he got a bit of a shock when he came home to find a horde of baby camel spiders running around on his landing.

    This was not alive but bloody heavy. Years ago I was packing up from an overnight session, while I took my rods to the car my mate put a huge concrete boulder in my rucksack - where I then lived I kept my rucksack under the stairs. The next day I said to my wife that I must sort my tackle as it is ridiculously heavy! That's when I found the lump of concrete which I had brought home! Although very funny I did get my revenge!

    I did bring home a fish that I hadn’t noticed was caught up in the folds of my keepnet. Took me a while to figure out where the stink in the shed was coming from.
    On the plus side I have had some lovely wild flowers that must have come home as seeds.
