Fishermans rubbish at Orrell Water Park
 Fishermans rubbish at Orrell Water Park   by Mick Byrne  (Panasonic TZ100)
Ale for him and a can of sweet corn for the old trout.

Groan...,,,,,,,,,,,,!
From one extreme to another. Mick are you trying to tell us something.... Bottles in the canal trying to get ducks drunk and now a flaming rubbish bin? Or are you taking a leaf out of Tracy Emin's sketch book?


Comment by Dostaf on 3rd August 2017 at 01:29
Well done for collecting it and putting it in/on the bin, Mick.

Most public spirited.

I'm sick to death of seeing sweet corn can tops which are as sharp as razor blades and a threat to dogs' feet. Let alone discarded fishing line.


Comment by Mick on 3rd August 2017 at 06:01
I do like the composition of this photo


Comment by Alan lad on 3rd August 2017 at 06:25
Fisherman's how do you know Mick ?.


Comment by Helen of Troy on 3rd August 2017 at 07:31
Seems like a public order re- drinking ban should be enforced here.


Comment by R Sole on 3rd August 2017 at 07:48
apart from the sweetcorn tin, where is the proof this is anglers (not fishermans) rubbish, More likely to be the local youths


Comment by ivor biggun on 3rd August 2017 at 08:22
Rubbish!


Comment by Gary Leece on 3rd August 2017 at 08:23
Whatever Budweiser is, ale it isn't and tinned sweetcorn resembles nuclear waste.


Comment by DTease on 3rd August 2017 at 08:42
What's the use of people putting rubbish in bins if no one ever empties the bins?


Comment by Pw on 3rd August 2017 at 09:38
Good photo Mick,shows well what rubbish anglers leave behind.There is a fisherie near me and it is just the same.Ihave also seen them lobbing their rubbish into the weeds.If you say anything to them you just get abuse.


Comment by Maurice on 3rd August 2017 at 10:49
A rubbish photo.


Comment by Bob on 3rd August 2017 at 10:51
If the bins got emptied then maybe the bottles could go in


Comment by Mick on 3rd August 2017 at 11:40
The bins do get emptied, and these bottles wasnt left on top of the bin they have been put there by a man who went round picking them up.
I cant see why these fishermen can manage to carry there full bottles and cans of ale to there fishing spots, but cant seem to manage to carry them away when they are going home.
Its a big thing fishing and drinking in Wigan, when Im peddling down the canal I can guarantee any fishermen I see in between Martland mill and the top lock will be fishing with cans of ale, and most of the walkers you see will be having a drink as they walk, I dont know how they can afford it to be honest.


Comment by A.W. on 3rd August 2017 at 12:03
Gary, I have to agree with you about Budweiser, it certainly is not ale in any form I recognise. I first tasted it 30 odd years ago on holiday in the USA and I though it was Lucozade!


Comment by Alan H on 3rd August 2017 at 14:38
Mick, it's no wonder they can't catch any fish if they are using cans of ale as bait. Also what are you selling when you are peddling along the tow path? Or do you mean pedaling?


Comment by John on 3rd August 2017 at 16:08
Gary, A.W., there is also REAL Budweiser Budvar from the Czech republic. That is good stuff - unlike the American Budweiser


Comment by Gary Leece on 3rd August 2017 at 16:27
AW - what a good comparison! Light brown fizzy Lucozade.

John - agree on the real Budweiser from Budvar; the Co op do a fine Czech pilsner which beats most of the standard brands sold in the UK.


Comment by DTease on 3rd August 2017 at 19:39
Reminds me of my kitchen table on a Sunday morning.


Comment by Ellen on 3rd August 2017 at 22:00
'Tis the same everywhere, it seems.My daughter used to manage our town's campsite- after one long weekend she collected various booze containers, not to mention much unspeakable garbage, that campers had left behind, after"cleaning" their sites on leaving. The booze bottles amounted to a grand total of over two Hundred dollars in refunds; That was the better part of it, but the stuff left behind was amazing and not in a good way!


Comment by Lynne on 6th August 2017 at 14:21
Note: All the drinks are of foreign origin. What's up with good old British bitter?


Comment by Robin Leigh on 20th August 2017 at 02:17
Interesting. I live in Jacksonville, Florida now. Periodically, we have a clean-up drive to remove litter from the roads and beaches. Two thirds of all the cans and bottles are Budweiser flavours. Says something about the intelligence of the folks who drink the stuff.....
