  1. Re: ‘Artifishal’ – a compelling explanation from Patagonia Films…

    From conversations I've had with the EA/NRW only the integrity of salmon genes seems to be an issue. One top scientist there told me they have discovered at least three different genetic strains of...
  2. Re: ‘Artifishal’ – a compelling explanation from Patagonia Films…

    My fear here is that the 'science' used as an excuse/reason in this movie can also be used to shut down our last remaining fish farm at Calverton. This impacts on all anglers, not just the salmon...

    Re: Jeremy Wade interview

    Crazy River is often lauded as the best fishing book ever written. Both you and Paul did an excellent job. Why did you never do a follow up sequel to it?

    Re: Replacing trebles with singles

    I'm fishing Flying Cs for salmon on the Wye. I was going to change the trebles for singles but it's a lot of falffing about when you can get the same effect by just using some heavy duty wire cutters...

    Re: Tackle shops in Prague

    I only visited fly shops there - but they were very good and the prices were brilliant. I bought a folding trout landing net with extendable handle for £3 ! And as good or better than anything in the...
  7. Re: River Wye Canoes: Tell Powys CC what you think:

    Yes it is. The survey is comprised of loaded questions from start to finish. It assumes that paddling is going to continue and this is just a tick-box exercise. A couple of hundred (or even a dozen)...

    Powys County Council are inviting views from anglers who fish between Glasbury and Hay. The council are engaged in a process designed to 'help regulate' the unlawful canoe activity on this stretch of...
  9. Re: Rod Sturdy: Canoe Access and What You Need To Know.

    Well the river is a lot shallower and 'more exciting' on the upper river where we are. But in Hereford they have a PRN so are legal - but they don't care about legality, they want 'excitement'. ;)...
  10. Re: Rod Sturdy: Canoe Access and What You Need To Know.

    The ATr are not the enemy. But they are a part of the problem on the upper Wye - as are the WUF, NRW and especially the EA. Let's not single them out and let the others go scot-free.

    I can't afford it - I'd need a gallon an hour some Saturdays or school holidays!

  13. Re: Rod Sturdy: Canoe Access and What You Need To Know.

    Canoing on water where no public rtight of navigation is a civil offence. The police are not going to be interested in anything unless there is a criminal element, i.e. aggravated trespass.

    Rivers with canoe problems

    I was interviewed on R4 for the PM programme which was aired last week, some of you might have heard it... Anyway, the reporter now wants to make the issue wider and better known and he's looking for...
  16. Re: How to wade and fish the Wye effectively

    I wade the Wye a lot since I moved to Hay about 7 years ago and spent my life savings on a fishery there. It's called Llanthomas and it's a paradise, apart from the unlawful canoes (no PRN here)...

    I have fished there but not for a few years. I fished the Micky Mouse lake and had a lot of fish. As I remember I had roach bream carp and barbel all on pellet - which you can buy in their very well...
  18. Re: Checks and Balances: Apex Predators and the Balance of Nature

    Not the only connection either. The South American Indians are presumed to have got there from Asia via Siberia and Alaska - or so went the theories back in the 70s when I read about it :)
  19. Re: Checks and Balances: Apex Predators and the Balance of Nature

    I looks like I was wrong. The Cauvery River otters are Smooth Coated Otter, a slightly different one from ours. The link TBO supplied actually mentions and has a photo of the group I was talking...
  20. Re: Checks and Balances: Apex Predators and the Balance of Nature

    Yes. I think you missed it! :) My piece is exactly that comparison. I agree Ken's piece is more measured however.

    No worries Benny. However I HAVE seen big families of otter (same species as ours) on the banks of the Cauvery river in India - which is thick with fish - over a dozen all on the same rock/holt. My...
