17 May 1982 A fishy story

So there we were stuck at Ascension for a few days.  With no flying and a little spare time, the Andromeda 'fishing society' decided it was time to see what was down there.  I have always been a bit of an angler and had a rod with me.  There were reputed to be some big fish around but there was one problem.  The place was infested with little black trigger fish and they would eat literally anything.  Any attempt to get your bait down was met by clouds of the little buggers who promptly stripped it off.  For some reason no one was keen on swimming either......
If you don't believe me look below:

 Lots of spud

Very little spud (after one minute in the water)

The culprit, one of thousands of the blighters
