Catch A Load Of This Nonsense

Beautiful, isn't it ? It's Foremark Reservoir in Derbyshire. And if you were a fisherperson (which I'm not) and lived in the area, you might fancy a trip there to indulge in your pastime; to do some fishing.

Fishing ? That's banned, fishing is. It's dangerous, see ?

Why's that then ? Oooo, two very good reasons.

For a start, there are some rocks near the water's edge. And being near the water's edge, they get wet sometimes. And some of the poor fisherpeople have slipped on the nasty, horrible wet rocks, and hurt themselves.

And then there's the fear that a stray fishing line might hit a passer-by. Has it ever happened at the reservoir ? No, but it might.

Oh well, better ban it then.

You can't do that here, mate...

Is the real reason for the ban that these people want to Save the Sea Kittens?

We live in strange times, my friend.

I think they should ban stairs. An uneven surface mixed with gravity is a disaster waiting to happen.
