Doubt it will affect the barbel and chub too much and no doubt many beats will have full compliments of coarse fishermen. Sign of the times I suppose.
Two fish from Golden mile this weekend despite low water, heavy weed, canoes bank to bank, otters all over the place ,algae and inexperienced rods. Just goes to show what a good gillie can do for you.
Pretty fresh fish too.
