    The story behind the owl picture is that it was very lucky that the canal was still iced over apart from a few inches of water on top of the ice. I noticed the bird whilst walking the dogs the other evening. It's wing was out stretched above it body and could clearly see it was tangled with fishing line which was hanging from the birch tree. A fishing lure was also attached to the line. Anyway I rescued the bird untangled it and then released it.

    It could of been such a different ending for such a lovely bird brought on by inconsiderate fishermen. They ought to increase rod licence fees to treble the cost that they are now. Also increase the vat on all fishing accessories too and limit every angler to one rod and make them put a variation in for another like us firearm certificate holders.. 😁

    How would penalising all the considerate fishermen stop the inconsiderate fishermen?

    With respect.. Tar all with the same brush 👍

    I guess then you would use the same brush to tar all shooters.

    It is not legislation, licences or increase in costs that will stop bad behaviour in any field sports, so penalising all for the disgraceful behaviour of the few is not the solution.  I both shoot and fish.

    He lost a lure in a tree, it happens. I can promise you its not intentionally done, some rapalas are a tenner a pop. Same case scenario with bailers twine around phesants/waterfowl legs. 

    Excellent job though saving it, that could of turned quite nasty for you if you went it at this time of the year :good:
