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

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

Mission and Kayacb, Why would SAFFA 1975 be appropriate against this Angler? and what have studs got todo with it? As for Access Agreements, we for one never forced them on you, it was WCA who came to us, and once agreed on was snapped up by them! Only when they/you thought a chance of a change in t...

Wildswimmer Pete and YvonneB, Sorry It looks like I got it wrong, and useful to know, does that also mean you can use the photos without the persons permision or are they just for personal use?

Re: Fishermans access thread

Hi James G, Hi Fishguard, Every British citizen has a power of arrest if they witness a theft (or other crime) being carried out (otherwise security gaurds in shops would be much less use). Of course, this carries a number of restrictions and they would need to hand the individual over to the police...

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

Hi Mission, What is he doing wrong in this picture? and what law could you prosecute him for breaking? You have already agreed Anglers do less damage (fishing for wild fish) and are less damaging to the Environment. And as you have mentioned again Access Agreements, and that you used to go outside o...

Re: Fishermans access thread

Hi TerryG, E.A Bailiffs have no powers of arrest on private waters for theft, as long as the offender has a valid rod licence, they can only ask them to leave, but very much doubt they would bother, it is up to the owners/tenants to get proof of the theft and then request Police assistance to carry ...

Hi TerryG,

I think you will find it also comes under the Theft Act - if you catch anybody who has no permission to fish private waters catching and taking fish.

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

Hi Paddlers,

As it looks like I am being ignored (very mature) thought I would ask you guys a question, is it true a Kayak is now classed as a vessel?

And how and Why did this come about?
