Another fantastic turnout for the Chalkstream Club and all enjoyed the brilliant talks by Richard Battersby and Shaun Leonard Director of the Wild Trout Trust.
Richard is head of our regions EA’s Fisheries, Biodiversity and Geomorphology (FBG) team! Their activities range from guerrilla tactics to catch poachers,to river restoration works, to monitoring our rivers, to advising on all relevant EA plans and projects for fisheries.
Then Shaun gave an illustrated & passionate talk on the roll of the Wild Trout Trust and how joining this conservation charity can really help our rivers – so if you are not a member – join now www.wildtrout.org/content/support-us
Many thanks to both Richard & Shaun for giving us their time & expertise, plus a huge thanks to John Aplin for organising the nights events. Also thank you to everyone who joined in to help pack away the chairs, wash up etc. without you the club wouldn’t exist….
Well that is it for this winter, but there will be one field trip to East Stoke to see the smolt run, so keep an eye out for the email…
