Re: New Severn record???

I see on face book its been caught for a second time . This time with 3 witness's ? and all the so called fish experts are dismissing it as to what the true weight of it really is .

I remember a few years ago when somebody claimed a new record fish for the Severn weighing 16 lb 11 ozs . The so called experts said what weight a fish can gain and not gain over a period of time and he proved those people wrong . It will be interesting to see if the claimant puts in a claim for a new Severn record .

Re: New Severn record???

The guy who caught it is not claiming it as a record ?It turns out the guy who caught it had a witness to its capture . Its a well known fish and has been caught a few times in the past . No doubt there will be questions to its true weight ? and try and dismiss it as being genuine ?

Re: The River Teme and the introduction of Otters

Its the same old story of mans interference in the balance of nature .It has happened time and time again over the years with out given it a thought as to what the long term impact it would have on the ecological balance on any of our rivers . It was the angling times who introduced barbel in to the river Severn back in the fifty's .

Years ago Zander were introduced in to the river systems . Zander are not a native fish to UK waters . Then you have Mink that were released from Mink farms and have had a impact on native wild life species . Signal crayfish is another non native species which were introduced in to our rivers . The list is endless and now we have the threat of global warming leading to more floods . Then you have the problem of whats being released in to our rivers by water company's and farmers . It seems that man will never learn . When man interferes with balance of nature

Otters were in our rivers for hundreds of years before being nearly wiped out . Then some body started a program of reintroduction of Otters back on to our rivers a few years ago and now barbel anglers are up in arms because of the impact Otters are having on dwindling numbers of barbel being caught in our rivers . If man had not interfered in the first place with balance of nature .Then we would not find our selves in the mess we are in now . When it comes to the state some of rivers are in now

Re: The River Teme and the introduction of Otters

Terry I think you will find its down to pollution of some kind that is being washed in to the rivers during floods that is killing of the weed growth ... At the moment there is a problem with the River Wye with the lack of weed that has been killed of in and around Hereford . There is evidence to suggest that is all down to the number of chicken farms in and around Hereford with the amount of chicken poo that is being washed in to the river and its been suggested that is what is killing of the weed in the Wye
