It may seem odd to some, but I take a great deal of pleasure in fishing on Rivers that have come back to life.
As a child, I remember stinking water, oil slicks, huge amounts of foam, the dumping of solids and the largely unseen waste discharge from chemical works and others. The others include sewage treatment works that were wholly inadequate.
Things are not perfect these days, by any means.
But now , these rivers can be a delight to fish.
It is truly wonderful to have witnessed and experienced this transformation in my lifetime.
