De här dagarna är det många som trimmar planer och utrustning för sommarens fisketurer. En del har redan hunnit testa och är inne på att göra justeringar. Hur många har lagt ner tid på att tänka igenom sin säkerhet? Det kunde vara fler!
Sport fishing is always "at risk"! At sole risk! This means that you are responsible for your own safety and that you behave in a way that presents no danger to those who fish near you. Or for nature and the environment. Safety is as obvious as fishing equipment. And just as obviously it is to handle the equipment with the same requirements and skill to handle his fishing rod.
The most serious accidents affecting anglers are drowning, fractures and that "hooks itself". Every year drown a dozen people in Sweden in connection with fishing, usually from smaller boats, often without safety equipment. Sometimes the influence of alcohol.
Tänk igenom säkerheten innan fisketuren lika noga som du packar allt annat. Check weather forecasts and have strict control over the flow of water! Test how you work in your life jacket when you end up in water. It is a surprising experience. Flytvästen ska vara rätt påtagen – CONTINUOUSLY – med grenband och knäppt ända upp till halsen. The swimming school get to practice klädsim and that knowledge is a bit of a commodity that needs to be updated for every age. Realize what happens if you fall down in the water with waders. The legs float up and the body pressed down! Squeeze the air out of his pants when you put on them, and "frequent" with a tightened belt. It can provide some vital seconds to get in the right position.
Patch, dressing, swabs for cleaning and painkillers are included in the equipment. And because knowledge of lifesaving, omplåstring and how to cleave a broken arm / leg. practice before. Om olyckan är framme är det bråttom. Time is a factor of safety.
Goggles is a cheap insurance policy that prevents sharp hooks that stick in the face. Keep a safe distance to other fishing both laterally and behind you.
Nedskräpning är en säkerhetsfråga för andra sportfiskare och för djuren! Glass, metal and plastic have no place in nature. Do not dispose of discarded fishing line. They can entangle the feet of birds. Cam is an annoying interference and a violation of the rules. Zero tolerance everywhere.
Keep your cell phone välladdad and waterproof case. Note that the phone does not have coverage everywhere! Another precaution is to leave the message was thinking fish and when you expect to be back. And of course: advise when you are at home again!
And last but not least. Be very careful with fire! Extinguish the fire after you even if it rains. Kom ihåg att glödande fimpar också räknas som eld!
