I'm sorry . while I agree with everthing thats been said regarding otters and the fact that no one will take responcabilty for the damage they do or the real cost of the fish deaths for anglers fisherier owns and pond owners this thread and its pictures need to be in the public domain , your preaching to the converted ! the only people that will see it here are anglers !

Today I got a picture of a 38-41 mirror which I caught many moons ago, older than me and from the king of bucks carp waters...... A sad day indeed... I can't put the pic up as I don't know how. This water is now nearly fishless

Agreed a very sensitive issue when we also start to post for example bird life kills by otters such as moorhens,coots,ducks, avocets!, young swans etc then we strengthen our case.

That Hugh Miles report raises an important issue regarding otters and their hunting practices. Not only in his pond, but in carp fisheries, once the otter knows about the body of water and the fact it contains an easy meal, it gets extremely determined.

Hence why those fisheries that have fenced BEFORE kills don't seem to suffer as badly as those who wait until after the first few fish are killed.

Pretty much the same with your house being burgled.....if it happens once then the chances of the thieves coming back are much, much higher than if you were secure in the first place and kept them out
