The other way the E.A use is juvenile counts, and this is ...

Hi Hobley, I am just one River Keeper out of many, you will find my views beliefs are shared by others, unfortunatly for myself they are following this forum, but are reluctant to post as they have seen the attitude of some paddlers to their fellow Paddlers and Anglers alike.

Mike B,

Our relationship with WCA is in the past, and of no concern to you, that is unless you are a member of WCA and have a say on the way it is run.

Again your posting is just baiting, why not take up fishing.
