Re­spect for oth­ers

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

THERE are plenty of rea­sons I love an­gling, one of the most pleas­ing be­ing the re­spect fish­er­men have for each other.

I re­cently pre­baited a stretch of my lo­cal river, and while do­ing it one even­ing I bumped into an­other an­gler who started chat­ting to me.

Days later I went down to my spot to fi­nally wet a line and saw the same an­gler.

He had pitched up about 100 yards away from where I was and told me he would never dream of hi­jack­ing my spot and cash­ing in on my hard work.

Such re­spect is com­mend­able and makes me proud to be an an­gler. Dan Moores, email
