A More Serious Article


Along with the technical and anecdotal articles which I add to the site at regular intervals I will also put up features tackling the more serious topical issues we as river anglers face.

Phil Hackett is someone I have known for many years going way back to the days of the National Association of Specialist Anglers and he has produced  an excellent piece detailing how to put together an objection to any planned hydropower developments.

It’s fair to say we have had a few disagreements over the years but I have never doubted Phil’s knowledge and passion when it comes to the big issues.

Phil is a highly qualified Independent Ecologist and brings a wealth of experience to this subject which is going to impact on our river systems more and more in the coming years.

I won’t say sit back and enjoy but I will say sit back and digest excellent advice from a very passionate angler, it will certainly come in handy if one of these schemes comes to your patch.
