So true - some [out-of-reach] branches hanging over (allegedly) good fishing spots soon end up decorated like... Xmas trees - due to lousy casts.
Very true. But how far would you go to rescue that special lure?
I have a picture of me doing something rather similar :o)
My wife has quite a few embarrassing photos of me swimming in my pants in lakes or ponds to retrieve spoons or lures - nothing Brian would like to see published on pikeblog ;)
There is a video somewhere of me wading out in my pants to retrieve my landing net - had quite an audience!
