Dear ohh dear, just what are the anglers letting themselves into, it will end up with total control by the trust. They worked out the fresh water take ban with the e a now they want to control the alleged decimation of the stock from all and sundry including the birds. It appears to be a paranoia of the worst kind. Those who don't support the trust will be social outcasts, even Michel the rsa conservation guy turns his snout up at those who don't share his and the likes of the mcs, ethos.


 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..

I've gone on record here as not agreeing with everything that the Angling Trust has or hasn't done.  However newcomers to the Forum should be aware that Barry is against pretty much everything, if not everything at all, that the Angling Trust does, whether good or bad.

 

In this instance the Angling Trust has done something very useful.  As a fishery manager I've firsthand experience of police officers not knowing about what to them is an obscure branch of criminal law.  I wasn't aware of POLKA, but it'll be very useful to refer officers to the guidance, and therefore get them to take poaching more seriously.

 

Fish theft is a crime that can affect just about every coarse angler.  So well done Angling Trust!

I wasn't aware that it was a systematic disaster that only the likes of the trust are capable of sorting out.

 

For the record, as far as i'm concerned, the trust needed to show some worth regarding the rsa scene to date there has been nothing positive, no consultation, back door politics and restrictions are offered to all the rsa to appease their very few mates. The day that they genuinely work for all the rsa will be the day I might consider investing 25 quid, it hasn't happened and still the back door politics continue. They are frightened to actually engage with real anglers and go out of their way to put the shutters up and hide behind the parapet when the going gets tough. Deletion and lock out's they are rather good at, while claiming to represent all, they don't. feel free to comment mr trust and co, i'm off bassing for three days while they arrange restrictions, they are working on that at the moment and can go hang.

Barry,

 

I wouldn't call you a "social outcast"  It's more like you feel like you are a victim of bullying, character assassins and becoming the scapegoat. 

 

WAIT ! That is exactly the definition of a "social outcast".

Barry, if you applaud when the Angling Trust does something useful it would make your constant attacks on them more credible.  Readers might then take your criticisms more seriously.

 

I know you have some "history" with the Angling Trust, but please don't ruin every topic on them by going off topic.
