    Default Pollution on the R. Mole

    Sorry to read that this has happened: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-surrey-41606536

    The R. Mole when conditions are right, is always a lively jaunt.

    People just don't think. Or care. Makes me a little angry...



    Been ages since the last lively jaunt Tim, must do it sometime. At the moment, there's a distinct lack of water...
    Covering as many malmiles as possible before being distracted by the pub!

    Yes indeed....I believe the last time we were shouted at, as been mad and irresponsible (or something along those lines)

    Slightly more colourful language, if I remember rightly...

    It seems strange that they would say:

    Mr Webb said the population of fish could recover "in a matter of months".
    But then go on to say:
    "These are fish that will take a long time to grow to that weight," Mr Webb said.
    "We will be looking at restocking, but these are not fish you can just purchase off the shelf. These are fish that develop over many years in the river itself."

    Mr Webb is covering his bases, saying everything and nothing at all.

    I'm guessing that what he's saying is that they can put the numbers of fish back but they'll take years to reach the size of some of the big ones.
