I'm not sure if Lou has fished before or if she is juts one of life's naturals. Either way she manged to knock Mark in the head with the lead weight as she cast off and to prevent further incident she decided to make her way to the top deck to "get a good long cast".
She certainly achieved her goal as we heard a bigger than normal splash and watched as plumes of water spray erupt like a little volcano several metres from the boat.
Aye, she had lobbed the whole fishing rod, reel and all, into the waters where it sank instantly without a trace.
No one laughed. Much. At all. 😁
Cost to replace the rod? THB 1 200- £25, so hardly breaking the bank!
