I’ll have a really good breakfast then a snack bar and plenty to drink on the bank but no food - it’s the rat thing for me too, better hungry than a case of Weil’s disease
I always have a pack of antiseptic wet wipes and clean my hands before I eat. Also come in handy for cuts and scratches.I’ll have a really good breakfast then a snack bar and plenty to drink on the bank but no food - it’s the rat thing for me too, better hungry than a case of Weil’s disease
I had hand sanitiser in my fishing bag, long before it became “fashionable”, for that very reason. Was quite unwell a few years ago after fishing a rat infested pond. I don’t eat while I’m fishing and only swig water from a screw top bottle to minimise risk of Weils infection.I always have a pack of antiseptic wet wipes and clean my hands before I eat.

What liquorish all sorts? sorry, I'll get me coat!I’ve eaten whilst on the banks since day one I just don’t eat the bit I hold that goes to the fish or ducks instead. Never been any ill effects. That said my grandad eats with no precautions at all and never come to any harm in over 65 years off fishing so whilst I wouldn’t advocate that it does suggest you’d have to get pretty unlucky to come unstuck. I did the shop for tomorrow’s fishing food after a few pints down the pub tonight so ended up with all sorts
If it's in my pack-up it gets eaten
Never had any ill effects from food eaten on the bank
It needed some extra colour in the water that day mate.Probably time i fessed up
When i went to Hampton Loade with @Zerkalo i had some tasty treats, Pork Pie amongst them, but i had nothing to keep them cool, they were a bit sweaty when i ate them, but alas, i was starving
Long story short i ended up taking a sh@te near the waters edge and using a dock leaf for toilet papier. Had the shiots and was no-where else to go
I definitely put the "load" into Hampton Loade.
At least now i know to carry bog roll with me when i go on piscatorial adventures, or at least some immodium and now use a cool abg and them blue freezer blocks
