Show us the money

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - News & Views - David Down­ham, by email

ONE of the ad­van­tages I have gained from be­ing ever more long in the tooth, is see­ing more and more old chick­ens com­ing home to roost! I re­fer to the man­age­ment of our reser­voirs. It is of­ten the case that a prob­lem ex­posed by a rel­a­tively small pres­sure group, such as fly an­glers, is a symp­tom of a much larger prob­lem. My wa­ter bills were once a frac­tion of my fixed liv­ing costs, yet now they are sig­nif­i­cant. This week we learn that most of our pri­vate wa­ter com­pa­nies are hid­ing their prof­its in off­shore ac­counts and not plough­ing back prof­its into in­fra­struc­ture. Any con­nec­tion to our prob­lem do you think?
