Cormorants

Take a look at this site I found, the anglers don't like cormorants

Well the angler that set up that site doesn't, at any rate.

Try doing a search for "cormorants" on here, Mark - this issue has come up a few times already.

Funniest thing I've read in ages. Nothing like a piece of cod-philosophy (hehe) to brighten an otherwise dull day.

Right, I'm off to menace an innocent haddock in batter. Somebody shoot me...

Must admit that he's not doing his argument any favours with comments like:

I totally believe that the carbo sinesis cormorants were deliberately and illegally introduced into the UK by extremist birdwatchers.

"Extemist birdwatchers"!!! Like, super cool. How do I get to join this underground movement of avi-revolutionaries? Hell bent on the ideological fervour of their revolutionary heroes - Oddie, Peterson and Sibley - the gang of desperate orniterrorists plot the downfall of angling-ocracy as we know it.....
