Tony Rees and I spent today supporting Country Side Alliance (Rachel) at the Lib Dem conference in Cardiff. It transpires that Labouris still intent on achieving OPEN ACCESS and they are going to bring it under the cloak of TOURISM. I have a feeling that none of the other parties want open access, Labour is intent on following their access manifesto which we have fought against these last (approx.) 12 years. As has been mentioned in the past please talk to your AM about free access, when we are paying, by purchasing our Rod Licences and our club fees or day tickets to fish. Of course the election in May will be the telling point, especially if Labour gets a majority.

A BIG thank you to Rachel from Country Side Alliance for the work which she is doing on our behalf and financial support from SACC (Sustainable Access Campaign Cymru)
