    thats ridiculous, must be trying to make as much money as possible before the otters arrive. I would... it's not a certainty yet but to my knowledge and those within the environmental sector, things like the Water Framework Directive and some EU enviro policies have been signed over to UK law and committed to post brexit. what hasn't been, and doesnt seem like there is a plan to, is EU protection designations, both land and animals, so SSSIs, SPAs, etc. There's still time for it to happen, and there is no clarity on what happens in the interim period if they aren't but it could

    It's all to do with Natural England I think? There's nothing natural about prison style fences going up all over the country. Not just fishing lakes either there's a big wetlands bird sanctuary south of me that's having to fence to protect the birds. You never know though the RSPB getting involved might be the key to change long term . They've starting on the ducks on our lake now the fish are in short supply !

    Sounds like there trying to pay for a fence with that hike in price mate . Would you all say it's been just under a decade of otter problems becoming more apparent , with the last 5 years really hitting home ? Dread to think what the next 5 years will be like. unless there are changes in law & numbers are controlled. This thread has actually made my mind up for the plans for this year , it's got to be a fenced venue I'm done fishing waters getting nailed by otters. Think I'll get another Horseshoe ticket . @greekskii can only hope some of what you say might come into fr

    Had the same conversations Kev, hence the question .. not Good times !!! We've got a pump turning up Thursday to drain a lake to see what's left. scales everywhere every time we go up there , so it's not looking hopeful .

    For 39 years I've lived within half a mile of the River Tame in North Warwickshire and I've never fished it. That's going to change this year. Ian.

    eBay

    I've had loads of results over the years. Sold a set of Delks for 360 that I bought for 250 then used for 3 years. An Armo I bought for 100 quid, used for a few years and sold at 160. Once sold a pair of Doc Martens safety boots I bought for 50 quid, wore until they were trashed, and sold for 50 quid lol. Bargain wise I've bought a lot of books that go for good money at decent prices. Always on the look out for a good bargain. If it wasn't for the extortionate fees I reckon I could make a living from buying/selling on ebay. My brother managed a 2000 quid carbon fibre Trek m

    The one I'm leaving is yes. I had another ticket lined up which has jumped from 650 to 1100 quid just like that. Not fenced either. Needless to say I won't be joining lol.
