What if this Corona virus had hit in the time before we had the internet ! What would those who get their daily news from Facebook done ? If we had no maggotdrowners to rant on, would there have been a lot more rows in households ? If we had no Skype to contact family members on, If there was no google for "experts" to get facts on. If organisations like the AT had nowhere to put their message to reach as many anglers as possible !
