Another AR feature drifts into the past - It is reported in many of the UK newspapers today that the last licensed eel catcher left in Britain has given up the trade. There are now not enough eels in the waterways to support a living. Over the last 25 years the number of European eels has declined by 95%. The reason for the fall in eels stocks remains a mystery. The last eel man is Peter Carter, who is 50 and has been catching eels with willow traps all his life.
