Apparently there were 2 of them fishing a stretch in Penwortham that is rarely (if ever) fished. They had waded out and the tide caught them out, one made it the other didn't. From Blackpool I believe and only 26. I can only assume that if he bought is permit from a shop the dealer didn't offer to sell him a tide table, assuming he had a permit?. Very tragic the lad will have a family somewhere.

Its not hard to detect the undertone when certain smilies are used, or when people 'assume' someone has failed to purchase a permit due to his nationality.

Grow up and stop looking for an argument. I said "I assume if he bought his permit from a shop" ie for that stretch I did not say "I assume he had no permit". The lad lost his life and you aren't being clever trying to turn it into a "poaching" argument. Whenever I have bought permits EG Preston Centre I have always being given or offered a tide table. That and only that was my point. If you have an agenda put your name against it don't twist others posts.

Why?


I fish a lot of areas other anglers don't fish mainly because they either don't think there are fish there or they just can not be bothered to fight their way through the undergrowth, bushes ect so does that make me a poacher?

ps: it actually says "rarley, if ever fished" it does not say never fished.

Phil or anybody else who wades, if you are wearing waders and fall in turn your body so that you are floating down the river feet first as that way any obstructions will hit your feet not your head. Bring your legs up and slightly bend your knees, the waders will trap the air and as act as buoyancy. If wearing Wellingtons take them off, turn them upside down and force them down quickly into the water. This will trap air in the cavity of the boot, then place one under each arm.

i was born and bred overlooking the stretch in question,people dont fish it for a reason,and accessability isnt one of them,it's very dangerous,soft mud flats,my guess is when the tide started coming in,his feet where stuck in the mud,panic set in then you dont think straight,take it from me trogg i dont think you would fish there[V]
