Fishing Tug.
« on: December 11, 2007, 19:28:51 »
   ...Hi Guys...

I was heading home from Largs MBC one day when one of my mates phoned me from a local trout fishery...I dropped by to see them & collect some fresh trout for my In-Laws supper...

I ended up sailing one of my model tugs in the pond at the fishery...
We tied a 20 foot length of fishing line onto the tug & attatched a trout spinning lure to the other end...

What a laugh we had as it towed the lure across the pond & was then towed backwards around the pond for the next 20 minutes as a trout took the lure...

We managed to land the trout & release it back to the pond unhurt but tired...
The tug was not damaged but I,m glad it was a little trout and not one of the biggies or else I could have lost my tug...

  ...All The Best...Norry...

Hi Norry,

Sounds like a scene from JAWS - "we're going to need a bigger boat"


Cheers - Kenny
No matter which way you throw me - I'll always stand.

I've always wondered what would happen if someone was to do that. I don't think I would be able to stop laughing.

Bollard pull (like tracers) works both ways.  Sounds like the trout had more.   :-[

if you can take away a 10 in 1 move, then you can add a 1 from an invisible 0. otherwise its not tug-a-war.
