had a rather terrifying experience trout fishing today

Postby plant_one » Sun May 22, 2016 9:29 pm

so i'm standing belly in the river fishing this afternoon - minding my own business and dodging canoe/kayak's - and then i notice trouble headed my way.

like any good smartphone carrying citizen, i felt duty bound to get the encounter on camera!

i have to admit, witnessing something like this up close when you're standing belly deep in a river is enough to make your starfish pucker a lil bit. :shock: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Actually, you had good reason to be a bit concerned...swans are very friendly until they reach breeding age, and then if you get one step too close, they will wear your a** out! :shock:
