    Extremely dangerous fishing equipment


    As well as being a challenging profession, fishing is also a favourite pastime for many individuals. Fishing can be extremely relaxing hobby; however, due to slips, trips and falls, as well as dangerous fishing equipment, there is a very real risk of sustaining fishing-related injuries and illnesses.

    Five of the most dangerous fishing equipment

    In the right hands, dangerous fishing equipment poses little risk to anglers. Yet, no matter how experienced or cautious you are, faulty equipment and human error can always lead to fishing accidents.

    Five of the most dangerous fishing equipment items include, but are not limited to:

    1. Fishing hooks
    2. Lines and braids
    3. Fishing nets
    4. Baits
    5. Spears

    Other dangerous fishing equipment

    Not all fishing takes place on the side of a local lake. Professional anglers are often involved in particularly hazardous work. Strenuous labour, difficult conditions and long hours create a hazardous cocktail for accidents beyond slips and falls.

    Deep-sea fishing cages are particularly dangerous fishing equipment, often responsible for loss of workers’’ fingers and severe lacerations.

    Claiming compensation for dangerous fishing equipment

    The very nature of fishing equipment does mean that there are risks involved with using it. That being said, if you suffer an injury or illness due to defective or faulty fishing equipment, you may be able to place a claim for personal injury compensation.
