to the rivers that are here in the northwest cos they are a rubbish paddle.

Seeing as it's been a while I thought I would paddle the Ribble recently. It's a nice intro or touring trip with a few good practice spots to get people used to ferrying, surfing and breaking in/out.
We saw herons, a bat, and an otter. Fantastic.
Most fishermen were also fine. Unfortunately one decided to video us, tell us that we were trespassing and then call us all w***ers. Nice!
He didn't spoil the day, but why on earth do people get so upset with someone paddling quietly and politely past them? There is so much trouble in the world at the moment, some fishermen really need to get some perspective.
Was he just upstream of the weir? Next time, I'm going to video him. Some of his rant at us would fall into the category of threatening behaviour.Unfortunately one decided to video us
