Cleaning out our rivers and trying to make sure the fish are a happy bunch is quite a selfish act for anglers. We have a vested interest in making sure the river is clean and healthy because we want there to be more fish for us to catch. We also do not like [...]
Hello new and old readers – the spring appears to be springing (although we could have -15 temps back any moment).
