Reminder - Don't Fish in Thunderstorms!

Lightening struck fishing rod
Recent media reports from the USA about two fishermen struck by lightening is a timely reminder to keep those rods down when thunder and lightening are about!

Montana fishermen, Gabe and Christian Neil were out fishing on Lake Harrisonville when lightening struck hiting Christian's custom graphite rod stopping his heart and setting his hair on fire and sending Gabe in to the water paralyzed.

Luckily for the father and sone team, a nearby fisherman heard the sound and came to their rescue. According to media reports they are now stable and are expected to make a full recovery.
