Re: Fishing litter

Andya - That is simple lots of children/Anglers (learning) to fish lose tackle, do you honestly think Anglers cast their line into trees to lose their equiptment on purpose, as for retrieving their lost tackle, no doubt they do try and fail. Isnt that why You and I do litter picks? but its not just ...

Re: SAFFA 1975 Act, the new reason why we cannot paddle rivers

Hello all, Simon/weso I have obsereved Salmon and Sea Trout Spawning at various times through the day, and not only at twilight. The legal intent for SAFFA 1975 section 2(4)b is quite simple once wilful is proved. By telling a Canoeist/Paddler that there may be Spawning fish or Spawn present and req...

Re: Fishing litter

Morsey,

Chriss started this tpoic of fishing litter, if this was not to provoke trouble making an Angelr V Paddler argument, what else was it for ? like it has bee agreed all parties are guilty of dropping litter, its what we do about cleaning up thats the solution.

Re: Fishing litter

I'm 58 so I have both life experience and some remaining tree climbing capability! Nobody expects people to risk their lives but if people can't retrieve their fishing line and hooks themselves they are supposed to report it to their club bailiff. Riparian owners are required by law to remove debri...
