It's a lot of years since I gave up my Leeds & District Amalgamation ticket and just wondering if any of you out there that are members could advise whether it's worth joining again. Primarily I would be looking to fish the Ouse, Swale & Nidd, what do their sections fish like these days? Are the sections under fished & overgrown to the point where it's a real chore to get to the swims? I ask this as I have now crossed the 60 barrier but still enjoy my river fishing over the carp puddles that have sprung up all over these days. Don't get me wrong I do fish the carp ponds occasionally but find chub & barbel fishing on a river more rewarding.
