The club is now considering action to protect our river banks and the habitat for our fish. As part of this we are looking to organise a Balsam Bash.
It is planned that this will take place in early June before the plants become established.
Everyone is familiar with this rapidly spreading plant, it can be very picturesque along the river banks but can also be a great nuisance for anglers getting to and from the waters. BUT are you aware of the problems which Himalayan Balsam can cause to game fishing waters.
Please take a look at the page to be found under About W&DAC to find out more about this and other invasive speciaes, how they threaten our sport and what we can do to help.
