:angry: I registered for the forum on line here Saturday, I thought it would be computer generated but it obviously isn't. I don't expect them to work weekends but I expected to have my password yesterday. Unfortunately they have inherited the apathy from the NFSA and they are living up to it. Lots of promises but no action. If they don't have the staff to do the job, say so, don't make excuses, it just annoys people. :angry:



Hi Norm,

I never recieved an activation e-mail, I just found that I could login and post, so it might be worth giving it a try.

Carl, who set up the forum, is one of the AT unpaid volunteers.

One of the tasks he's taken on as forum admin is to match applications to the membership register.

He's posted on the AT forum:

The forum members are growing but some are still trying to register without using their full name.

I havn't got the time to sift through everybodies registration with a fine toothed comb, so therefore any username that doesnt contain the members full name will be deleted immediately - sorry.

So, if you don't pay, then you can't play. I thought they were supposed to be representing all anglers?

As Barry said, we don't have much of a problem on AN, so what is the AT afraid of?

Den


I don't have any problem with that philosophy. If I were a paying member I'd be peeved with non members, not paying, being subsidised by me paying for them.

I think you also missunderstand, AT are meant to be representing anglers, not all anglers.

Rob.

Hello Norm, how the devil are you? Hope santa brings you lots of fishy stuff for christmas. :D

:lol: Hi Mate, I keep telling the family, NO fishing tackle or clothing, I have it all. Daughter no.1 let slip that Mum's bought me a rod, OK, she's guided by someone as she bought me a Penn Waveblaster 30/50 Pirker last year which is a great rod but I don't need any more heavy rods, nice as it is. There is absolutely NOTHING that I need, I have it all. I could do with a house keeper for my office and a book keeper, just realised that looking for a camera. I might have to buy a new waterproof camera as I can't find my Pentax but that's not a Christmas present, that's a business expense. I'll see if I can have a trip somewhere warm where the fish are biting as a present to myself, yeah! I can see me being allowed to shoot off on a fishing holiday, I get funny looks when I go abroad fishing "for work", Mrs B thinks I'm off on a jolly, she doesn't realise how hard it can be at times, the sun, heat, drinking, and of course the fishing, life can be hell. I'm out with Glenn on the 29th, weather permitting of course, I hope to be able to fit something else in as I've got 2 weeks off.
Happy Christmas to you and all sea anglers everywhere. :lol:

I think it's you who's misunderstood that part, Rob.

The Angling Trust is the new, single organisation to represent all game, coarse and sea anglers and angling in England.

Tis a shame Norm, i'm down there on the 27th and 28th, could have had a pound for the biggest. Next time Norm. :D

 Free to choose apart from the ones where the trust poked their nose in. Common eel. tope. Bass and sea bream. All restricted.

 
New for 2016 TAT are the main instigators for the demise of the u k bass charter boat industry, where they went screaming off to parliament and for the first time assisting so called angling gurus set up bass take bans with the e u using rubbish exaggerated info collected by ices from anglers, they must be very proud.

Upgrade, the door has been closed with regards to anglers being linked to the e u superstate and the failed c f p. So TAT will no longer need to pay monies to the EAA anymore as that org is no longer relevant to the u k . Goodbye to the europeon anglers alliance and pathetic restrictions from the e u.

Angling is better than politics, ban politics from angling.
 
Consumer of bass. where is the evidence that the u k bass stock need angling trust protection. Why won't you work with your peers instead of castigating them. They have the answer.

Recipie's for mullet stew more than welcomed.
 
Angling sanitation trust and kent and sussex sea anglers org delete's and blocks rsa's alternative opinion on their face book site. Although they claim to rep all.
 
new for 2014. where is the evidence that the south coast bream stock need the angling trust? Your campaign has no evidence. Why won't you work with your peers, the inshore under tens? As opposed to alienating them? Angling trust failed big time re bait digging, even fish legal attempted to intervene and failed, all for what, nothing.
 
Looks like the sea angling reps have been coerced by the ifca's to compose sea angling strategy's that the ifca's at some stage will look at drafting into legislation to manage the rsa, because  they like wasting tax payers money. That's without asking the rsa btw. You know who you are..

It is a simple fact that the "minority" of anglers created the Angling Trust in the first place and therefore command the lions share of representation through membership. The decision to create a single voice for angling by the disperate minorities has a least delivered a slightly bigger minority under one roof, something that was a simple exercise to reduce overheads, avoid duplication etc etc and deliver the same services, hopefully more effectively.


I was tempted to spend 20 to join the AT to respond to this kind of crap.

Minority group anglers (referring to specialist (?) anglers) started the AT so everyone else has to follow what they want? So if I'm not a specimen hunter/single species angler I'm not represented?

Makes a complete mockery of the claim to represent ALL anglers and advertises the fact that they will base their (political) views through the mouth piece that is the specialist (?) angler. No wonder stocked stillwater crap fishing and the 2 cwt of high protein river polluting groundbait single species specimen regime hasn't had any proposed restrictive legislation slapped on it then. Just the majority of fish for fun and relaxation, average river angler who might like to eat what he catches, shame, shame, shame...........and not even allowed to have our say! :angry:
Eating wild caught fish is good for my health, reduces food miles and keeps me fit trying to catch them........it's my choice to do it, not yours to stop me!

Angling is more than just catching fish, if it wasn't it would just be called 'catching'......... John
