Will this ever happen in my lifetime? Maybe it will in one or two exceptional places...
While I'm waiting I think I'll just make sure I patronise only those places where my money goes into the upkeep of the waters by professional, dedicated, river keepers. An amateur cop in the form of a bailiff is NOT taking on the real obligations implied with ownership and leasehold of fishing rights.
What do you think? Is this how to make sure waters are managed in as sustainable a manner as possible? Is keepering nothing but a relic of feudal times? How can our rivers all be made as they should be if not by full-time, dedicated, professional keepering?
