    Help with water sampling Derbyshire Derwent

    Aye Up I'm looking for help from people down the length of the Derwent who can collect water samples from river. This will mean putting a small sample bottle (provided) into the river on the end of a litter-picker and collecting about 30ml of water from near to the river bed. The survey...

    WWF In union with the Angling Trust, WWF have held our government to account on a number of occasions, including providing hundreds of millions of pounds for the catchment restoration fund and currently a successful judicial review over phosphates in rivers. Did you know phosphates are...

    Protecting club waters from poaching

    Private prosecution through the courts, backed with comprehensive victim impact statements. Go along and hear the case. Nod to the bench at the door... Follow up in the paper local to the defendant with a story, written with pictures.

    Peacock Fly Fishing Club- Wye, Derwent, Bradford and Lathkill

    Over 75? Half price Jan and I think keeping people fishing is just as important as starting people fishing. It's a privilege to take senior anglers around our four rivers in the landrover and show them the flat banks, numerous seats and resting fishing huts in the hope that they can extend...

    The end of DECC

    What a man you are...:omg: My motivation for taking the pains I do against HP comes from being a river keeper on a river that was the first to receive a micro-hydrogeneration plant in the Peak District. I was willing to support it at first, even being quoted in the press and using it as a work...

    The end of DECC

    We aren't on the same side. This is a single issue thread about the demise of DECC and how I think it is a good thing. You do not. We are on the opposite side. You are not privy to the content and tone of my correspondence or conversations with DECC. I was told by six separate sources that...

    Bass in Dumfries

    Off up there on a trip. Wondered if there was one spot better than another? Don't give me your secret spot, not asking for it, just perhaps somewhere well known where you have a chance. Thanks.

    What's the real story?

    Howsham Weir 'consultation'. A weir with two turbines on their already, wanting a third. Mention of five other weirs we own, a whiff of being consulted on one as a precedent for the rest? No technical info included nor any link to follow. Is the question, 'should we put a fish pass on a a weir...

    The end of DECC

    What silly question is that? I'm incredibly glad the fools have no place to gather and impose their ridiculous will from this previous department. They weren't people who understood natural processes, nor the consequences of their actions. ---------- Post added at 08:58 AM ---------- Previous...

    The end of DECC

    I care about rivers. A battle was fought that ended up facilitating ruinous hydro-power, because DECC were simply more powerful than DEFRA. The types I met and corresponded with from DECC left me in no doubt what they thought about rivers. I'm hoping DEFRA will be quick to support our...

    The end of DECC

    I dont think we could have done any worse than Truss. Leadsom was given the post for standing down against May, as were a few others. Time will tell. Patterson was the best. He went around the regions and told them all to reduce bureaucracy. Sadly redtape is all they have so they were glad...
