    Of course the SNR ponds were effective considering the restraints. WUF didn't like it, and fought to have stocking stopped, they now have more money to spend on habitat gardening that has had little or no effect up to now. WUF, NRW, EA, Angling Trust, the Rivers Trust, Afonyyd Cymru etc etc etc...

    Passion for… A Cleaned Up Wye

    I also have a annual report from welsh water for 1986 where it states that Hereford Anglers had a poor season with only an increase of Barbel catches worth mentioning with best caught at just over 7lb.

    But, one aspect of the Wye that makes it a non Natural River, that you often talk about, is the illegally released and non native Barbel population. He talks of 'other native fish' as if the Barbel is one of them. The other native fish are part of the balance. Natural Barbel populations in east...

    Is Angling going to the Dogs?

    Well the water is certainly high on the list of things that need mending :unsure: When the pollution has abated due to the dedication of the 'little' people, you know the ones that make an effort and talk up the reduction in pollutants and talk down the glorifying of unnatural and non native...
