Electricians tape can be used for a multitude of things.
It has saved my bacon, on many occasions. Including acting as a first aid , to stop bleeding.
But today it came into its own, along with a hammer, some washing line and every fishing net handle i own.
OH and the biggest treble hooks i could get.
Firstly, working the hooks with leads attached, I worked the river the river, in a fan pattern.
After about an hour I connected with a leg, it broke the surface , much further out than i thought ,then it swirled and sank.
This boom and bust went on for quite a while .
Eventually getting, frustrated. every time it went down i had to find it again.
Three hours later, now slinging a hammer taped to the washing line. I connected and got it to the bank side.
Another hour. Tree roots, trying not to fall in and a multitude of four letter words, dash, dear etc.
I'm the not so proud owner of a working tripod and duff camera.
Now, its unlikely, that the one person, who passed me today, will read this and realise what i was doing.
But, I bet my house, that I'm mentioned in at least one conversation beginning with.....
I passed this nutter today.......
