Thoughts on conservation ethics

Lately I have found myself becoming more and more concerned about the conservation ethics of some anglers. As all of us are aware the last few years have seen a concerted effort to ban felt soled waders in an effort to help stem the spread of aquatic species such as didymo. While this is by no means a perfect solution to the problem, I believe it is a vital first step in this fight. Sadly however there seems to be a large population who feel that since the organisms can be carried by other means(boot uppers, shoe laces, waders etc), this step is worthless and not worth the effort. Sadly this is something that must change
