River Mon­sters, ITV4, Sun­day July 17, 8pm vis­i­tor to the tow­paths.

It’s the lack of re­spect that some walk­ers and bik­ers have for an­glers shar­ing the banks with them. Don’t get me wrong, the vast ma­jor­ity are re­spect­ful, but some have no con­cept about the value of fish­ing tackle.

An­glers in­vest thou­sands of pounds into their hobby, and a rogue passer-by can eas­ily cause an aw­ful lot of dam­age as they don’t ap­pre­ci­ate the true value of fish­ing tackle.

Canals are fan­tas­tic fish­eries, but groups such as the Canal & River Trust need to do more to ed­u­cate the gen­eral pub­lic about the price of fish­ing tackle if the pop­u­lar­ity of these wa­ters is go­ing to rise. Paul Tal­bot, email
