I seem to be getting a reputation as a clummsey and ill fated angler, So I've tried to work out how much fishing has cost me over the past 12 months and this is how it goes.
- x1 canon euxus camera, cost £300 (sank on boat, forgot to put bung in)
- x1 ipod touch 16gb cost £250, ( as above)
- x1 quantum salsa spin rod, cost £100 ( smashed on boat splash screen)
- x1 samsung touch screen mobile, cost £200, dropped into sea
- x2 sakura shukan rod tips, cost £12 ( caught one on boat prop and other in landy door.)
- x6 assorted lures, cost £100 ( knocked over board by a friend when reaching for a net)
- x1 re-whipping of two rings and new top ring on RB270, cost £20
- x1 n90 mobile phone, cost £150, ( fell backwards into a huge rock pool and nearly drowned)
- X1 canon EOS 1000, cost £399, ( as above)

now I think that about covers it, but looking on the bright side I did find a half rusted dexter wedge on saturday, cost £3.50p. So its not all bad is it.

Jamo, was any of it insured?? To lose one camera or mobile phone is perhaps to be expected doing what we do, but two of each? I felt bad for some of my clumsiness this last year but feel much better now, thanks!

Ouch I thought I was bad after loosing or leaving behind a couple of little things over the last month or two but it pales in comparison to that list, at least you found the dexter wedge though.:-D I'm just thinking though, would your house insurance cover any of these kind of things? I'm thinking more about things like the cameras rather than the lures and rod tips although it would be great if you could take out insurance against lure loss.:-D

Oooooooooooooooooooof....

I didn't realise you worked with electronic devices as well Jamo, I thought you just specialised in rods (isn't there a few more snappages in addition to the above?).

For gods sake though, strap that awesome camera you have firmly to your person!

there has been a few more snappages mark but finding those memories to hard to discuss on an open forum. It'll also please you guy's to know that i'm taking out insurance this year. Also if anyone from the tackle industry is reading this I'm more than willing to do endurance trails for tackle, its got to be good to survive me, lol The fishing has been good though, just have to accept that electrics and water don't mix.

I have extra posessions insurance on my household policy. It covers me worldwide for up to £1000 per item for about £30 quid on top of policy. This means I can go fishing and not worry about damaging expensive gear! Well worth it!:-D

re; damage report.

as ben says, ive just renewed my house insurance with personal items covered away from home.
This was mostly because i didnt want "Mr -help-yourself" relieving me of my treasured tackle,
but now after reading your report it makes even more sense. It may be worth checking your cover as ithink some policies have this as standard(less excess of course!).
thats the good news.
the bad news -can i have my wedge back please!

Jamo what about the Trabucco Egging rod that you broke? :) You have had a bad year mate, lets hope it get better soon eh.
As I said earlier ****, thats just to painful to discuss on an open forum, at least looking on the bright side, I'm on a mission to keep you in business. lol.
