the wandle in the top 5 for best rivers ? wasnt expecting that .

it suffered mega pollution problems not that long ago and 1000's of fish died , had to be restocked and its still getting stockings even today to rebuild its population it once had . loads of shopping trolleys , bikes and street cones thrown in the river last time i went for a look .

such a shame as this used to be a lovely river . i will be out doing the next one as long as its not this sunday or next weekend .
saturday ill be at carp show and then a 40th party in laleham , so will be fairly rough i should think ! lol

best and worst seems to sum up alot of things m8, figured these key points are what we should be worried about;
13 of the 14 sections are below European standards
high levels of phosphate
sewage
urban run off
barriers
are the key issues causing low numbers of fish, no change there then

phosphate must be a problem in the more rural upstream areas, this must be the reason for alans diminishing catch rates year on year
sewage and urban run off, obviously in london and the suburbs, thank gawd for the best part, these areas are tidal
barriers, we're gonna get more if hydropower becomes reality

so what we gonna do ?, call ghostbusters, NO, we should be known in certain circles as the TAC, That Annoying Club
