Do you fish for barbel at Coultershaw. If so we would like to make you aware of an exciting project that we have taken on and you can help with.
Our club in conjunction with the Environment Agency are carrying out a survey of the ageing population of barbel in the Rother on the Coultershaw stretch and six of our members have been trained to examine and take a scale sample from any barbel you catch. This will allow the EA to determine the age of the barbel at Coultershaw. The members who can do this are listed below and if you know one of the six is on the fishery please contact them to take a sample from any barbel you catch before you release it.
Thank you for your support in this matter as it will hopefully lead to improvements on our fishery.
If you have any questions or comments please contact Martin Cornish (Bailiff) 07834858082
The members are:
