Saw a prog a few weeks ago on Discovery Channel or some such. A diver dude type guy lost his thumb... to a Moray eel. He was hand-feeding it sausages! "Wahl... thar's yer problem!"Which one would you rather not have chewing on your finger....?
Let’s see how far we can all piss up the wall on this one...
You've never been in a small boat with a recently landed, large conger eel have you! I've seen anglers climb onto a boat's wheel house roof to avoid 5 or 6ft of 50lb of lively conger.Having caught Pike to 20lb on fly and eels to 1/2lb, I would choose Pike every time (Conger is just a big eel). Spent more time cleaning my line with the eel than playing a 20lb pike !
That was what they claimed in that programme where the dude got his thumb bitten off. I did a bit Googling, and yes, it is bollox... or more correctly it is coincidence...Without wanting to appear to be a doubting Thomas - thats Bo!!ox
When I was Googling, I came across something about Giger's original having a phallus inside its mouth...Lesser of two evils.Pike will undoubtedly badly shred your pinky but a spinning conger probably amputate it.To be honest have never come close preferring to use fit for purpose tools of the trade.Have met HR Giger due to being involved with a band who used his artwork and no idea regarding the Moray connection but the ''Sigourney Weaver''Alien was spawned in Gigers ''phallic'' Vaults.
