Angry Anglers on The Cut
"the fisherman wasn't sympathetic to his plight"
I often used to paddle (kayak) on the Grand Union Canal, anglers would sit on one bank with their float right over the other side, then to hurl abuse at kayakers as they passed, as if they should otherwise wait until the fisherman had finished for the day.
I'm sure that's not the case for any anglers on this forum though! ;)
