Shocking murder of a bloke trying to catch a few barbel

I fish the opposite side, as you obviously know Gerry that is a very tucked away spot. I wouldn't night fish there and I've fished into the early hours elsewhere on the river but never had any issues. Terrible and scary what happened, it does make you think about when and where to fish I agree.

Absolutely horrendous, three proper looking scrotes

There is a place on the river lea with some absolute lumps in .. but I wouldn’t fish it without 3 or 4 other people
