If I have translated this right :confused:

Then no you can't catch anything from it, well nothing that you wouldn't catch from the water you're fishing through a scratch on your hand if you put it in the water.

Have been fishing on and off for about fifteen years and never hurt myself apart from pricking myself with hook points,and the occasional nip from ragworm but it doesn't hurt.
STOP WORRYING ABOUT HURTING YOURSELF as i have found that providing you do nothing stupid you have pretty much zero chance of hurting yourself.
And as for weavers never caught one and never seen one and i fish the south coast where there is supposed to be loads of them.

I used to fish for Bass until I had my accident. I was gashed by the gill plate of a smallish fish in the skin between the thumb and index finger. I managed to stop the bleeding after about 3 hours and thought nothing more of it. 2 days later my hand started to swell up at a rate of knots. I was admitted to hospital with an unknown infection which resulted in me losing my left hand at the wrist. I cant advise you strongly enough to give up bass fishing immediately if you value your health. If you do heed this advice, please could you also try to convince as many other anglers, gill netters and pair trawlers to do the same. Thanks ;)

Bloody hell - with all that bleeding you would have had to bail the blood out of the boat to avoid sinking!

Funny you should say that mate, I did actually sink for that very reason. All that stuff about hospital and amputation was just a figment of my ghoulish imagination. Truth is shipmates I drowned that day in a mixture of my own blood and sea water. I now haunt a well known shingle beach near Portland....Aaahhaaaarrrrrr :eek:

bloody hell! i posted a picture of 10lbseabass on the gallery and now we have the buggers name. if cod father is reading this it must put paid to his scepticsism. oh and by the way i caught a bloody lovely pollack last night on a little rubber lure, it was my first one and actually remustered my love for fishing as not catching anything really was getting me down. if jaceb sees this i did not get bitten or stung and took it of the hook with no fuss and let it go alive.

All well and good that catch and release stuff.......sounds a bit risky though!
Club them, cut off fins with with shears, pull gill covers off with pliers and file down teeth. Then return alive and much less hazardous to fight again another day. Jobs a goodun !
