Fossoway beat 2014

From the opening day of the 2014 season we will be able once again to fish again on the upper river upstream of Crook of Devon for the first time since the devastating pollution incident centred about the Glendevon Water Treatment Works.

Time will tell on how well the river has recovered?

Sadly the Devon is no stranger to such pollution incidents; as I discovered last week browsing the internet ……… a clipping from the Glasgow Herald of April 29, 1879

herald 29-04-1879

Members and visitors should remain vigilant for such incidents and report them immediately to SEPA.
