Rocky road indeed to reach my local waters
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
