Can you get the NGW channel?  A one hour program about British sea anglers and the conger eel.  Ended with some fellow catching a 9ft 100+ pounder.

 

Really cool show with angler names, captain names and boat names - locations - just lots of interesting stuff about the animal.

 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..

barry,

 

I'm not any good at finding alternate internet sources for TV stuff.

 

No, we don't have ANY eels that large.  The conger eel record is around 20 lbs I think(?)

 

I have never seen or heard of anyone fishing for moray eels.  Not really sure on this one.

 

Only eels I've run across is the "American Eel", largest for me is about 4 - 5 lbs  (same as your fresh water eel I think?).  Just as soon never catch another one if that's OK.
