    The Moon could of been the problem maybe?. The joy and the beauty of living away from the cities, Living and playing in such idealic surroundings. Each nite spent outside is 1 to treasure, every 365 of them. Hmm pity Sean was there

    Don't you go picking on young Sean GA. They went for a family fish . Not a rumble by the river. Ha ha ha ha Dundee and Mrs could always sneak back after Sean is tucked up for the night.

    A Late friend of the family's use to be a deer culler - He told me that when they got sick of eating venison and supply's where low if they spotted trout in a river they would open the Bolt of the 303 - flood the breach and barrel with water, then chamber a round lowering the rifle to the bottom with a boot lace or string tied to the trigger - wait for things to settle down then pull the string.... WHOOPPPMMPPHHHAAA.... ................ he reckoned 8 out of 10 times a trout would pop up.................

    ...............Now go try that with ya brand new $3500 Sako ..............Yea right ..........

    No need. If its in less than 3 feet of water the old round nose nickel coated ones do the job apparently but i wouldn't know anything about that:rolleyes:
    "Hunting and fishing" fucking over licenced firearms owners since ages ago.

    Roy I don't think you would need to submerge the rifle at all. I reckon just firing the round into the water would create enough of a shock wave to stun a fish. I may be totally wrong of course.

    Yea , ya more than likely right , but im sure as Fark not planning on trying the old boys method , . I have been known to "cast" the odd nickle spinner in the past with some sucess I think this submerson method be best laid to rest with the the old cullers now in the sky & smiling down on us all. In fact they probably pissing them selves laughing looking at all the cadgets and crap weve got these days.......

    My cousins used to take their old mans pump action Winchester .22 underwater to shoot eels. Had a perfect bulge half way down the barrel

    My Uncle used to shoot trout with his 303. He said the key to it was not shooting the fish , rather shooting at the water directly above it. Apparently it stunned it long enough to catch it.
