Didymo reaches Patagonia :(

We need to adopt effective measures to prevent spreading such invasive exotic species as anglers.

Juro, with tongue in cheek: Are you saying that as anglers we should make a concerted
effort to prevent invasive species OR a concerted effort should be made to prevent the spread of invasive species such as anglers?

Couldn't help myself!!!!!

I agree that everyone that sets foot in a possible site for contamination should have a process that they follow to decontaminate prior to stepping into another body of water but is there such a process now available that is readily available to the average angler?

Here in VT we began with washing stations at points of entry of our rivers. Beginning this year felt soled boots have been outlawed.
