hi all ,i cut my teeth on the lea over 25 years ago, it used to be fantstic!!! salmons brook was heaving with amazing dace and roach.the lea at tottenham locks were the brook joins was the dogs dangly bits in winter you would need to be there 1or 2 hours before light to get the peg you wanted.UNTIL these fish eating birds arrived you know the ones the C WORD Mad just up the road is the coppmill stream probably the best roach fisherie in the solar system it runs through walthamstow rezzies .even now theres hundreds nesting .needless to say the lea and coppermill stream are f f f ruined! .all the silvers are gone and the bream and few big carp rapidly disappearing like the lead on my roof and probably by the same bar stewards scratch .this was all on my door step and now when i fish the lea its up in hertfordshire 15 miles away.if you fancy some proper chub, broxbourne is the place Very Happy .if you catch a 5,6lber yeah what no big deal!!. its the 7,8,maybe 9lberi,i,m after Shocked

Spot on observations Brigpal,I liked the line about the lead disapearing from your roof.Spot on ask the tennents of
St Katherines Dock who have had to have security doors fitted on access to thier roofs to stop the 'builders ' nicking thiers.How have we as anglers allowed our rivers ,lakes and water courses to be systematicly raped by
non fish loving species bird and human alike? without so much as lifting a finger to prevent this happening .

i heard walthamstow rez /thames water are going to have a kids day to teach kids to fish.its in the process of being set up it was mentioned on tight lines talk sport radio.i would like to know how they are manageing to protect there stock of fish maybe they can share there secret with the lake and fishery owners.if you go for a walk around the rezzes when you see how many cormorants are nesting it makes your spine tingle Mad .the lower lea has been decimated and sadly forgot about by to many anglers .these birds have caused the loss of fish,anglers and of cause lets not forget the many tackle shops in and around north and east london its a load of anabolics!!!!!! Mad

It might just be that, although the cormorants are there, most of the problem is in fact caused by this run-off pollution, hence the £341,000 from DEFRA to sort it out?

I would love for that to be the case so that it may be rectified and someone held to account for the pollution but the Lea above Tottenham locks up towards Broxbourne is the canal section of the Lea. Salmons brook runs into the lea below Tottenham Locks and then the Lea continues on through Bow and finishes at the Thames.

The fact is, that from Tottenham Locks up to Aquaduct Lock there are hardly any silver fish left. Hence you hardly an angler.
