"There are many ways to persuade a good-looking woman who has never held a hot rod in her life to go fishing with a man on a sunny afternoon.
I remember from my days of youth, a saying that my mother told all her boys and girls without fail whenever we left the house. 'Never leave the house without wearing clean underpants and knickers. You never know what will happen and I don't intend being shown up if you have an accident and the ambulance man has to rip off your clothes in public to get to the wound!'
My reading of history over many years informs me that it is only a few centuries ago that women started wearing today's equivalent to knickers next to their skin and up until the early 1950s, most males from working-class backgrounds did not experience the luxury of wearing underpants, at least during the working week.
Virtually no man would feel properly dressed today without a clean pair of kecks wrapped around his thighs and private parts unless of course he was going on a fishing trip to make a perfect partner catch and wanted to make use of the best bait and tackle in his toolkit to give him the edge. There again, I suppose there's something to say for 'Going Commando' for certain guys for whom the boot fits."
