Why elec­tro-fish?

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

I HAVE just read the ar­ti­cle in An­gling Times about get­ting more clubs on the canals but I think the Canal & River Trust is ap­proach­ing it all wrong.

Canals close to my home used to in­ter­est lots of lure an­glers tar­get­ing zan­der, pike, perch and chub. There was a healthy stock of sil­ver­fish and it was all go­ing re­ally well. Now that zan­der are re­moved by elec­tro-fish­ing I strug­gle to catch a 4oz perch.

The Trust says it wants more an­glers on our canals, but it isn’t lis­ten­ing to an­glers on the bank. An­thony Wood, Nuneaton
