an idea to stop fish being taken by eastern europeans

Rants about immigrants are like water off a duck's back to me. I am not convinced.
Fine you may say......but if you can't persuade people like me (and, I repeat. I am an Angler) then what chance do you stand of persuading Joe public that there is aproblem.
Can't we just let the whole thing rest for a while?
It is getting tedious.

lets not get confused between bailiffs and EA tax enforcers please,the only bailiffs with power are those that call after a dept with court papers to serve nowadays.
despite being given "power" by the club in reality it counts for nothing ,i cannot physically boot anyone of club land whether fishing or not only ask them to leave as for poaching is it worth the hastle of reporting it to the police then waiting days for them to arrive (if at all) and at potentially great cost to myself (if the other party gets bolshy) for a free permit a year ?
i have been lucky those i asked to leave left and those permits that needed confiscating taken but i'm not insured by the club despite doing their bidding and material loss by me paid by me .if i can get a number plate i take it but its never been acted apon as far as i know .
luckily at the present i havent encountered anyone taking fish for the table hopefully i never will but my pond is tiny and secluded so may escape the unwanted attention others get ,the club rules say no fish to be taken for any reason this will be enforced as much as i can where ever the fish thieves harken from!

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you
There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong
Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle
Whitby scallops caught by scottish boats best that money can buy,the nearer the shore they're dredged the better they taste
