Ridiculous tradition on the rivers has hand cuffed necessary changes and we've been turning the other cheek to where we are now.
My other great passion are the English chalkstreams and exactly the same thing has happened there and in a lot of instances it's the same kind of binding, damaging tradition that is to blame.
