I'd go to the GP and tell him your concerns. At best it'll put your mind at ease, worst case scenario you've contracted it, and you can get it sorted now before it ****s you up. There's probably nothing to worry about, but it's better to go to the GP and get the all clear than not go the GP and get sick.

Ive used anti bac gel for years now, the session before the bottle split and I hadn't replaced it, have now tho.

So if baby wipes arnt good enough, do you think I should get checked out?

no mate, baby wipes will not kill bacteria. You need to get some anti-bacterial hand gel for when you're fishing. I'm a bit OCD with it, but better than to risk getting weils disease.

Whilst fishing an overnighter last week under an oval, I nodded off halfway through a cuppa. I was woken up by a rustling sound. As I looked out 2 bloody very rats scampered across my swim with custard veranda in there gobs.
I checked the pack and they had knicked half a pack, they had been standing on a toilet roll whilst munching. When I picked the toilet roll up it was soaked through with rat piss.
I had a full panic and wiped everything down with baby wipes. I'm now crapping myself, every headache I get all I can think is weils.
Were the baby wipes enough?

Wow, I can't say i have ever had any troubles with rats - as most say keep food inside, off the ground and sealed and hang rubbish away from your bivvy common sense really!

You would think that with it being a potentially fatal disease they would raise awareness on the tv programs.
I can't remember ever hearing any angler speak about it on telly i.e. Thinking tackle etc. People new to the sport get to see the guys catching fish, putting them back and never shows any use of wipes etc

Even something like a mention at the end of these programs could raise awareness all over the country!

Just my two cents!

You can never be too careful, my father-in-law nearly died of Weils disease. He worked for the council on the roads and picked it up at work. I always have wipes and anti-bacterial gel with me when fishing and keep some in the car for when I am shooting... being aware of the symptoms to the extent you can raise it as a concern to a doctor is excellent advice.

probably currently out of stock.
i believe that its common practice to change the price to a ridiculous one, rather than remove the listing & put it back up later.
