"Honest Officer, I Didn't See the No Trespassing Sign."

Earlier this week I posted an entry about a new fly fishing school in the United Arab Emirates. Let's just say that if you are going to fish in the Persian Gulf, you don't want to trespass on someone else's water. A German angler was fishing in the waters off the UAE when his boat strayed into Iranian territorial waters. The mistake got him 18 months in an Iranian prison.

"The men reportedly realized they had strayed too far when they were arrested by Iranian authorities."

And you think that you have had bad days on the water?
