It's like most other things involving the Severn...exclusive. And it's fine by me. I normally keep within the confines of the river and this keeps me from scanning the big board for info from you all.
I think Fisham was right in saying "does this mean we made it?". Yes, most definitely. The SRRKC will always be a have-fun fishing club (I hope), but this separation means that you are something bigger than that. There are quite a few knowledgeable guys here with a great deal of experience and knowledge of the local water and its inhabitants and habitat. We are all out on that river quite a bit, and notice many things and the effects, or potential effects, of such things.
Maybe you'll become somewhat of a consultant with issues relative to the river, or maybe just a force to be reckoned with.
