I feel a bit vulnerable at times when fishing on my own. I fish at the quayside which is relatively well lit so that I can see who is coming and from a distance as well.
A couple of weeks ago I was fishing on my own and there was nobody else around when I seen these three guys approaching. There were talking to each other and they were still drinking, they were still holding cans and had a few in a bag but society today has made everyone apprehensive. Not knowing what was going to happen, I put my filleting knife in between my leg and the sidegaurd of the chair but as it turns out, they walked over, had a chat about what I had caught and then went on their way telling me to enjoy the rest of my day.
I hate knifes but as mentioned society has made us very wary so this was all I could think off. I would hate to think what would have happened if they did do anything as I should not have used a knife but what is the alternative?
Most people are happy to stop and have a chat because they see me in the wheelchair and it is not something they see everyday but I am always on my guard in case the unthinkable does happen.
Cheers
