Im willing to take a Kicking if they have to Carry one or 2 of their mates away quickly to get Treated.Doesn't matter how "tasty" or "tooled" a person thinks they are there is always someone a level above or in the numbers that matter.
It just comes down to luck or bad judgement whether it works out well or not.
I’ve seen that machete. They made a good decision that night and they didn’t know it.The only time i felt lets say Uneasy was when i night fished Bobs Island alone, it was before i got Albert, i could hear talking and footsteps behind my Bivvy, i just Walked out with the Machete at my side hidden, 2 lads looked over muttered summat and left. I didnt sleep much that night
I’ve met you Dave and I’d say you’re well capable of five maybe six.I've only been concerned once, I was fishing the canal at Westlands on the last peg, which is a dead end. I saw these five blokes coming round on the other side, and thought what do I do now as there was nobody else there. I quickly arranged my gear as best I could to get it behind me, and picked a bank stick up, and stood up ready. Like anyone else would be, I was nervous but needn't have worried, as they stopped short and just asked me how I was doing. On another day it might have been nasty, as I wouldn't have stood a chance against five. (maybe four)
Hey commieboy, I always seem to get a bloke come and sit in the peg next to me, and start hammering his bank sticks in, just as I start bagging.
Yeah I probably wouldn’t fish a completely urban spot on my own myself. Obviously there’s even more witnesses than semi urban and rural places but there’s also likely to be a lot more undesirables than anywhere else.I'm not sure if I feel safer in the middle of nowhere or a more built up area?
I've always felt safer in the middle of nowhere.
I said this to a Copper mate of mine who Goes to the Rugby, he said but if say theres 4 and ya Harm 2 Badly the other 2 aint gonna have nicking your gear on their mind. Worth a Punt imho.It is sad though, when just say one of us fought back and damaged one maybe two of the aggressors. You can bet that it would be us getting into bother, the law is crazy when it comes to defending yourself or your property.
