The conference on recreational angling, which the Marine Conservation Society is organising for the 25th March in Birmingham, isn't just another conference.

The MCS has done a brilliant job in getting the interest of MPs, MEPs, MAFF and various other influential bodies and individuals.

Those institutions will be sending along representatives to listen to what sea anglers have to say on issues such as overfishing, recognition for the economic benefits of recreational angling, our very right to fish to catch.

If only a relative few anglers turn up, they won't be listening very hard :-(.

If you, like me, are fed up with moaning to your mates about how poor the fishing has become, about the b****ds illegally netting, about how no one ever does anything, please, please come along. It will be a while before we get another chance like this.

And don't forget to bring a mate, get your club to send an official representative, make up a poster and twist the arm of all the local tackle dealers to display it, and whatever else you can think of to get people to come along.

It's only a few weeks away, and we need to make those bookings now.

For more details, visit the Sea Anglers' Conservation Network Website at http://www.anglersnet.co.uk/sacn/
or got directly to the Marine Conservation Society site at http://www.mcsuk.org

See you on the 25th.

Leon and fellow anglers
I would like to endorse the comments made about the recreation sea angling conference at Aston University on the 25th March.
It is absolutely vital that we have a good turn out to represent caring anglers.
Some top class presenters will be available including the world renowned conservation and restoration expert from the USA, Dr John Waldman.
The chance to meet with-like minded anglers and to influence the decision makers is a chance not to be missed.
See you there.
