Crying or Very sad some tragic news one the Chew valley pike Facebook page talking about an elderly fly fisherman dissappearing under the water while wading today!!!!!!
Witnessed by some of the folk posting. What a shock for all and thoughts with the family and all involved.

I've split these posts away from where they'd previously been put. Obviously, this is an ongoing situation and speculation is bound to be rife so please make sure any further posts reflect people's feelings at this time.

BWF have issues the following statement on their FB page ...

Bristol Water Fisheries

There has been an ongoing police operation at Chew Valley lake on Thursday 8th and Friday 9th November.

This operation has now finished. We have been assisting the police with their operation and investigation. We are not commenting as all statements must be managed by the police press team.

We politely request that customers refrain from commenting at the present time on this post. Fishing and other activities at Chew Valley Lake can resume this weekend.

All enquiries regarding the police operation to Avon and Somerset Police please.

Thank you for your understanding.


I'm sure things will become clear in due course. Sad

Alan
