TO the joy of animal-lovers and the despair of landowners, Scotland's wild beavers are on the move.

A canoeist has uncovered the first evidence that the animals are migrating south from the Tay to the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park. From there, they are likely to spread to large parts of Scotland.

IIRC, there was one area in Scotland where beavers were released legally, and another area further south where they were illegally released. The authorities know about this second area but decided at the time not to do anything about it and just monitor the situation. Now, the beavers are causing a degree of havoc (chewing down trees and building dams that require removing), but it was recently decided to let the beavers stay, much to the dismay of local farmers and angling groups.

Bet mr salter will be pleased he's looking for methods to hold all this flood water back.


 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..

:clap3:  At least they're vegetarians and not a threat to the local fish populations, unlike otters and seals. :clap3:

:clap3:  Just read in today's Daily Mail that released beavers are to be allowed to stay and breed but will be monitored, they will also be protected. That's one in the eye for the AT wanting them to be captured and removed. In the USA it has been proven that beavers are BENEFICIAL to the environment. Their dam building has slowed rivers and made areas of marshland and ponds which benefit  the environment.  :clap3:

All,

 

So, - - - since 2012 when Elton started this thread what has been the "timeline" for beavers.  Is England still habitable?  Has everyone sold their fishing kit?
