The Wandle in The Angler

The Angler - front cover

Thanks to Paul Sharman there’s an excellent feature about the Wandle river restoration story in the latest issue of The Angler, the Angling Trust’s new-look membership magazine, which has started dropping through letter boxes over the weekend.

To conclude the feature, Paul asked me for a testimonial about the Angling Trust’s role in the Wandle’s restoration, which naturally I was more than happy to provide:

Without great help from the Angling Trust and Fish Legal at a very critical point in the Wandle’s history (after the catastrophic pollution in 2007), the river would now be in a much more precarious state. 

And the Wandle Trust itself would not be in a sustainable position to look after the river in the long term – and even be able to think about sharing what we’ve learned and helping local people to look after other rivers across the south east of England.

There’s plenty more detail in the article itself, but I think that sums it up…
