Are ot­ters be­ing blamed for our short­com­ings?

Angling Times (UK) - - TACKLE NEWS -

I QUES­TION whether ot­ters have re­ally caused the dam­age that some peo­ple think they have.

I have no doubt that some fish­eries have been hit re­ally hard and de­serve the sport’s sup­port but I be­lieve this to be a lo­calised, not a na­tional, prob­lem.

Just look at An­gling Times last week – there were big river fish re­ported left, right and cen­tre!

A lot of those bar­bel and chub had sup­pos­edly been eaten by ot­ters but they clearly sur­vived the on­slaught! Maybe an­glers are just lazy and turn to ex­cuses to hide their short­com­ings? Mick Ley­don, Broms­grove
