Re: Hoping to fish the minnow but not sure where

If you have tribs in mind then the Honddu has gradient and flow even in these low water conditions. Lower Henllan would be a good choice.

Re: Rust fungus on balsam

We are quite right to be wary of releases of anything even if it is to control HB. Personally I have my doubts about its effectiveness. Fungi and rusts, in particular have specific conditions and...

None I would expect - the applications for the new scheme don't close until next week!

Re: Fishing the Monnow

Moving on from TFC's need for personal hygiene products (!): despite being at or below summer levels the main river is looking good and some very decent fish are are on the fin. MrP and I watched a...

Re: Wye Discussion 2015

I think the point our new agricultural correspondent has also missed is that the onous will be on the farmer to exclude the stock in order not to have his subsidy payments penalised. This may only...

Re: Wye Discussion 2015

Just to clarify your vision, Washington; the main thrust, as I understand it, is unnatural erosion on river and stream banks caused by livestock poaching.

SF, I said silt (not sedimentation) runs...

Re: American Signal Crayfish- myth busters

There is right and wrong on both sides of this latter discussion!

The EA and its predecessors have made many a cock up: licensing the original import and release into ponds of ASC and several...

Re: Wye Discussion 2015

Research carried out in Switzerland is showing that erosion from river banks, where Himalayan Balsam is present can be up to 10 tonnes per kilometre. That's why we are eradicating it from the Monnow...

Re: Wye Discussion 2015

In roads will be made if it is done in the right places, on the upper river and tribs mainly, after all silt runs down the river!

You might also have noted that in the last round of CAP reform...

Re: American Signal Crayfish- myth busters

Warren, at what level are you talking to the EA and how seriously do you think they are taking your results? Are the WTT and AT taking up this case?

Re: American Signal Crayfish- myth busters

I think Wrongfoot was making a valid point. A lot of what we do on rivers is ground breaking stuff and is passed around anecdotaly but fails to make it into the mainstream because we don't take it...

Re: American Signal Crayfish- myth busters

Warren and SB they are the upper Dore and probably on 2 other very small tribs all sites are on unfished or unfishabel stretches so fishermen are not likely to be involved directly.

Natives are...

Yes we have wondered what to do about them but currently we are tied up erradicating the last of the HB on over 90km of river and stream.

First job is to establish exactly where they are and...

Re: American Signal Crayfish- myth busters

We'll done Warren. Amazing what you can achieve if you set your mind to it!

How do your results compare to the project details I forwarded to you?

Do your ASCs have the plague?

That's a YES! By the time we finish, the river will be livening up around Where we are working and I am sure a few casts could be in order.
