NO LONGER POLES APART
We've had previous moans on Brigg Blog about seemingly uncaring anglers on the Old River Ancholme blocking the towpath - a public right of way - with their extended fishing poles. No fun at all if you are trying to get past with a puschair, pram, or (more so) in a wheelchair. So it's pleasing to be able to report that a Saturday morning stroll alongside this stretch of the river showed a very different picture while members of the Conoco fishing section were enjoying a match. The only pole I did encounter blocking my path was immediately moved by the angler in question, who was apologetic.
These Conono chaps set a fine example.
