    That's o.k. - as long as you don't pick up a nettle by mistake!

    That's right. It's no the "pishery of the month".

    I wouldn’t want to see toilets where we go for “wild” fishing, obviously.
    I should have said at the top of this thread that I am talking about commercial fisheries here, in the main small still waters run as businesses that need to attract customers (and ultimately, new ones) to survive.
    I had forgotten that it was school holidays here last week and I called in at two fisheries. At both were children fishing along with their parents, male and female. I think one family of four were all novices, having some tuition. These might be the future anglers that help to keep the sport going.
    I’m guessing that in 2019 that those visitors would expect at least a toilet on site.
    Only when the last tree has been cut down, the last fish caught and the last river poisoned, will we realise, we cannot eat money.

    If anglers can't control their bowel movements for a few hours then I feel sorry for them. Don't you have toilets at home?

    A rather stupid statement. What on earth is wrong with a commercial fishery providing at least basic facilities for their customers? They want to attract more of those one assumes, and as ladies and children will be among the customer base they are not likely to want to return to a place that expects them to head for the bushes if they need to.

    Let us pray that mike fox finds himself in dire need one day with no Immodium and no toilet at hand. He might well change his mind then.

    Agreed, you could reasonably expect at least basic toilet facilities when paying to take your family to a venue on a day out for other activities.

    The guy I go fishing with had bowel cancer a few years ago and he sometimes has a sudden need for a toilet. So the places we fish need to have reasonable facilities. We all can get caught short once in a while.

    The trouble is nowadays people expect too much mamby-pambying. If I had problems with irregular bowel movements for any reason, I wouldn't go to a fishery without the facilities to suit my needs. It's a simple as that. I don't expect every fishery to cater for my individual personal hygiene requirements. You'll all be wanting kitchen facilities next. In over 50 years of fishing I have never had a problem. If a venue has facilities, then I shall use them. If they don't, I'm happy to go without.

    I like fisheries to have toilets, shower facilities, hot meals available throughout the day, and perhaps a couple of fruit machines that I can play when having a break. Loud music through the speakers wouldn't go amiss.

    I'm sure we're moving towards that.
