Nicely done Brian.
I love to fish on occasion but I hate losing any lines in the water. Stray fishing lines or six-pack rings can be really bad for our fine feathered friends.
Finn and the Wookie seemed to enjoy it too.

It does take a good man to rescue a critter as unloveable as a gull. I guess that Brian is one them ... good man that is, not a gull.

I'm not much of a fisherman to be honest but whenever I've trailed a line over the stern watching the seabirds eyeing off the bait quite puts me off. There are alwasy people fishing off of the sea wall where we launch our dingy. It's depressing the number of times we've gathered up and disposed of bits of broken line complete with hooks and/or sinkers.
