Yet Another Major Pollution Incident!

Just a week ago I wrote about sorting out the details for the new season which starts in March on the fishery which I run, Llyn Coron on Anglesey.

The thrust of my article being concerns about the increasing threat from agricultural pollution in Welsh waterways, and the abject failure of responses from NRW.

Well, the worst has already happened. On Thursday 25th and Friday 26th of January 70,000 gallons of farm slurry was released into one of the lake’s feeder streams, Afon Gwna!

Guest Posting:

Do you have something to say? Our audience is over 10,000 unique visitors a month. We are the largest platform there is to reach Welsh sea, game & coarse anglers.

Here are some pointers as to how you can publish your articles at Fishing in Wales:


  • All you (or anyone you know – please spread the word!) would need to do is simply type up an article / editorial of any length.
  • Articles can be anything such as opinion pieces, news, views, publicity for upcoming events / competitions etc, reviews of events, personal diaries eg. a write-up of a fishing trip (in Wales!) etc. – pretty much anything you can think of which would be of relevance to about 10,000 sea, game & coarse anglers, however obliquely!
  • Give it a headline and then email it across with any pictures you’d like to use (or even video links).
  • Every item does require at least one image, but don’t worry if you don’t have anything specific to hand we’ll find something generic applicable to your subject material.
  • Also let us know if you want anything specific regarding your position in relevant organisations for your by-line: eg. Chair, Your Club. Or if you prefer to just publish under your name only (or even a pseudonym!)
  • Also let us know if you would like links on the page back to any other websites you would like to publicise to the FiW audience – a maximum of 2 links please.
  • We do reserve the right to adjudicate whether a submission is suitable for our audience. And we reserve the right to sub-edit for spelling, grammar and libel!
  • Then we’ll set up a new post on the FiW blog and let you know when it’s published so you can publicise the page link.
  • The author will retain copyright of the content published at FiW, and can request removal at any time if required.
