What happens to the funding and volunteer support given to the WTT?
Well, here is Wild Trout Trust Director Shaun Leonard giving a summary of some of our achievements over the last year. It was the opening presentation of this year’s Annual Get Together of the WTT — which was held on the banks of the River Ribble on the weekend of June 6th and 7th 2015. I’ll be putting up more presentations — including fantastic, game-changing stuff on flood risk management as well as experiences of fisheries “going wild” as an alternative to stocking/put-and-take.
As Shaun says, if you’ve ever wondered what your rod licence money is spent on — well a little bit of it has been spent by the WTT doing the following things for UK rivers in 2014/15…
