    I despair. The best water on the Kennet (I fished Ramsbury, Littlecote and Hungerford for years for trout and grayling) and some Agro-goon goes and kills it. Gun, please.

    What on earth are we thinking of allowing the use of an OP as deadly as this?

    It is incredible isn't it!

    The sad thing is that there are some lovely stretches along those 15 kms

    Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers.

    Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher's salary. ~

    Its amazing in this day and age that we are still having these issues I wonder whether this has been news in anything other than the angling press and the bbc ?
