its heart breaking, its where I very first cast out a line and caught a small perch, ive fished the place for over 30 yrs now and took it on to turn it back into what it once was....so much work has been carried out down there, from swim building, clearance of trees, reeds, increased water flow, raised the water levels, blah blah...I wanted to secure the future of the lake so that not only my 5 yr old can enjoy what I have for the past 30 odd yrs but others too...we've took the time to put in walk ways for the local dog walkers, bird watchers alike...

im a bit of a broken man with it now....and I don't think i'll be able to walk away from it.....

am I being forced to break the law by the authorities now?

I would walk away mate....i understand totally how you feel believe me, i do...

Otherwise you are going to hurt ,alot more when the lake is barren...if the owner will not listen even when you have shown him all the evidence,there is nothing more that you can do....

These are the one and same people who have ruined course and trout fishing in the Tamar Valley,horrible do gooders indeed ..Anyone one who loves carping and wants to point the finger in anger ..@

The Tamar Otter sanctuary North Pertherwin .Launceston have a lot to answer for........

I also note the owners often spout environmental rubbish in the press ,one of which is a local council member...[.all on the same council] which a local politicians family [lib dem]...destroyed a complete habitat so holiday makers wouldn`t get there feet muddy or ,on water from trees landing on the expensive clothing they party wear...as they walked around a lovely little lake and former productive ecosystm...

all in the name of a nature trail............ ....

Take it he doesn't need them money then because they don't pay the rent. I know of a water with restricted access and an otter fence so its do able. They are waxing lyrical about the buggers on winter watch atm.

Thank you mate

heres one.....my lake of which I rent .....ive done everything...and I mean bloody everything...its turned from a muddy hole into a wonderful estate lake...ive been congratulated by walkers and landowner alike...

"its never looked better..well done on all your hard work"

I will add its not just me, but committee and its key members...

NOW...after being ottered on several occasions I approach landowner with FACTS...not rubbish and guess work...I mean FACTS....im not the person to mess a round....im a successful businessman who don't do anything but FACTS

I need to fence...END OF....its been refused as it has too much of an impact

I have choices..

1) walk away from a lake ive fished since I was 9..im now 46

2) Battle with the law

3) run the gauntlet

today...I feel sick...sick because the Angling trust whom represent angling...(but only its members) don't give a f**K...and a most of their members are forced members...rant over...wake up fisherman as a whole...and that includes you match anglers....cause there aint going to be much of a future in angling very soon

Gutted for you Joss and everyone who is trying to make a go of it and is getting decimated by otters after all the hard work that goes into getting something up and running.
Believe me I know that sickening experience of turning up to your own lake or should i say one you are running to be faced with dead carcasses of fish that you have invested time and money in and can recall the last time you caught the said fish you are looking at dead on the floor.
All this happened to me and a few friends a few years ago now and I have lost count of the amount of otter petitions and social media sites that I have signed up to or supported, I feel that although it is not a waste of time it is however a lost cause everywhere you look it is becoming more apparent that the situation is getting worse tenfold every year.

I appreciate that people/Anglers will say that you should of protected the lake with a fence but this is not always a choice you have for many other reasons than cost.
