Well I went to the drop in centre, got 7 days worth of antibiotics, and I need to book an appointment with my gp to get a blood test done, it is highly unlikely but I am defiantly in the at risk category. So much better safe than sorry.

Next purchase will be a first aid kit and some hand gel.

Ohh and a 22" rifle!

:edit: It would definatly be beneficial to stickie this thread in my opinion.

An old thread I know but after just reading through it I'm quite frankly poo'ing myself!

I went fishing midweek this week, in the middle of the night I was woken by a run, to my surprise it was a pike (17lb or so) that was trailing a trace from its mouth.

When I got the fish on the mat I retrived what was left of my rig and noticed the trace sticking out of its mouth, I didn't know it was a steel trace at the time so I grabbed hold of it wrapped it round my hand to hold it still then the pike went ballistic flipping all over the place managed to get it under control get the trace out of its mouth and returned it. It was then that I realised that the steel trace had given me a nasty gash on my finger! anyway disinfected the cut with Clinique (didn't have any plasters) and thought no more of it.

This morning I started to feel a bit ruff, weak, tierd and my legs and lower back started to ache, its gradually got worse and now itís quite annoying!

I know itís a case of overinflating my paranoia by self diagnosing; a head ache becomes a brain tumour when you look it up on-line e.t.c. I'm quite concerned that I have may have this horrible weilís thingy, everything I can think of points towards it, I don't know/havenít been in contact with anybody with a cold/flu and there were rats everywhere at the place I was fishing.

I don't fancy sitting in casualty and obviously I will have to wait till Monday to get an appointment with my g.p. I fear I may be better being safe rather than sorry and going to somewhere and explaining my situation and getting a blood test and antibiotics. Donít want to end up.

You can buy it from "Complete Feet" on line or phone 0800 6335199 and it is £2.95 for 150 ml. (or it was last time I checked) hope that helps.

hand cleaning gel here i come

Try to get hold of the industrial strength versions, the ones they use in hospitals, dental surgeries etc. The supermarket versions are nothing like as efffective. The Desderman gel is as good as it gets!

After reading this thread, people would be stupid to ignore your advice

As I said in the initial post, people always this it will never happen to them...Think again!

It is an awful disease and I have not fully recovered more than three years later, as my liver has been permanantly affected. It's grim so be aware.

Blimey

Excellent thread Ken, very informative. Your pictures have really made me think about this. Like you say, you don't think of such things happening to you but as of NOW, I am really going to take into account everything I touch when fishing and how I store food, drink etc.

I do not expect any of them to take a blind bit of notice of an old fogie like me
