Reader letter: should fishing be banned?
PUBLISHED: 15:40 06 July 2017
I live on the River Lea in Harpenden. Since the start of the fishing season (June 16) I have seen many dead but once obviously very healthy, fish floating down stream.
Not only is this distressing to see but it is occurring on a stretch of the river that has ‘no fishing’ signs prominently displayed.
When said anglers are approached, a string of abuse eminates from them stating: “We aren’t doing any harm.” That is not the conclusion I have drawn from what I see on a regular basis.
I am coming round to thinking fishing should be banned.
