Rocky road in­deed to reach my lo­cal wa­ters

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

I’M hon­estly not one to moan much, but I am go­ing to make an ex­cep­tion here and get some­thing off my chest.

Com­mer­cial fish­eries are im­prov­ing at a rapid rate. Lakes are look­ing pret­tier, on-site cafés and tackle shops are get­ting big­ger and the fish stocks are be­com­ing more di­verse.

But one thing that a lot of fish­eries seem re­sis­tant to spend money on is the en­trance roads to the fish­ery.

This may sound ridicu­lously picky, but I go to sev­eral venues where the road to the lakes is in worse con­di­tion that some of the tracks in the Hi­malayas!

Big pot­holes all over the place that da­m­age the sus­pen­sion on your car, and over­grown trees that can cause scratches to the paint­work, are more than just a mi­nor ir­ri­ta­tion.

Surely if a fish­ery can in­vest in all those other things, they can spend a few quid on tar­ma­ck­ing a road? Reg An­ders, Tip­ton
