quick update this morning after leaving windows and boot open overnight the smell is not as strong. Luckily i know a mobile car valet who is spraying the whole interior with a professional odour eliminator so hopefully tha should be problem solved.

Safe to say i wont be doing that again in a hurry.

Thanks
Nathan

Next time, pack a cool box, I have a smallish (10 litre) one that serves very well for keeping fish good on journeys.

Not exactly the same model but close.

Have to ask; were the fish in a watertight bag? If there were no leaks, I'm surprised the small was so bad. Hope you get rid of the pong. jadaTC

Just a normal carrier bag :/ smell is getting better getting whole interior sprayed with odour eliminator today though so that should hopefully sort it

Seriously, this is one of the reasons I practise catch and release. Not through some conservationist ideology (although definitely I approve of that) but the idea that as soon as I kill a fish, it is decomposing.

Sure, if I knew I would catch a fish five minutes before I left a fishery, I might plan to keep it, but things are seldom that predictable.

Not only that, but you have all the cleaning and that mess to deal with after a days fishing, that you don't get with fish fingers.

Sure, I do have to deal with that when guiding, but for me, it is something I can do without

I don't know how deer hunters deal with all that stuff .....

I agree, It's a lot easier to buy a fish supper!

And tastier IMO.

Gazza left 4 Rainbow Trout in Gordon Durie's Club sponsor motor when he was at Rangers..........

Jukebox had to give the car back to Honda as the car was rotten!

Gazza fished at Howwood while he was up here I believe....

I spent part of this last week with one of his long-term colleagues, who told tales of turning up to training to find that one of the team's cars had been pinched by Gazza, driven onto the centre circle and then had the tyres stripped off, the vehicle mounted on bricks and each wheel placed at one of the four corners of the pitch.

'There were also the days when the loser of a bet had to walk into a charity shop and walk out 20 minutes later to present himself to the rest of the players dressed in second-hand clothes. Gazza, of course, came out dressed in women's clothing.

Other tales included a backside painted as a face with a cigarette inserted and the whole display poked out the car window as his pals drove Gazza's Range Rover around town; and a raw trout carefully inserted in the side panels of a car door so that a teammate's vehicle stank like hell
Even on leaving Lazio in Serie A, Gazza took out his frustration at the way coach Dino Zoff patently despised him by hiring a limousine, getting Jimmy Five Bellies (his long-term aide-de-camp) to drive it onto the training pitch as he smoked a cigar and drank from a champagne bottle.'
