Yeah I cant really say I’ve been scared while fishing..
But I have had a fair few fright whilst snorkelling..
Checking out all the little nooks and crannys for crayfish and a big conger eel pokes his head out of the hole. That usually makes me get outta there pretty fast
Another time I was snorkelling and had a mother seal jump in the water beside me when its pup started swimming near me.. Dont trust seals too much.. and their teeth are big
