British Water Board: Backcasting Threatens 300,000

I don’t suppose that the 300,000 pedestrians that are supposedly at risk at the Foremark Reservoir in Derbyshire will miss the numerous fly fishers who traditionally dot the shorelines there. Or that no one has ever been hit by a backcast in forty years of sharing the space matters to the local water board. “David Coates, chairman of Foremark Fly Fisher’s Association, said fishermen who could once fish four miles of bank have been reduced to under a mile. He said 10,000 fishermen come every year to fish at the beauty spot, including the England fly fishing youth team.” Louis Gray in the U.K. Telegraph.
