worse, news for me is the PBA have now joined TAT At present TAT are polling charter skippers for info. With a free plug in the all new magazine for doing so.
Remember the 2012 cefas survey of anglers? TAT at the time told all they would participate in the 6 meetings come back and inform the rsa what was discussed etc. TAT didn't trust defra how the information was to be used so they would not be collecting any from anglers.
What actually happened was that Mitchell and one other attended the six meetings, no information re the six meetings was ever past onto anglers what so ever by TAT. Subsequently the information collected from anglers by cefas was used by TAT in their pleadings for bass restrictions. TAT knowingly used this info that was exaggerated on the amount of bass taken by the eight hundred and eighty thousand anglers to big up their argument. Low and behold the commercial sector complained about all the angling bass removals and so that is how the bass ban on anglers commenced. Following on from that TAT's director conceded that the angling info was exaggerated and incorrect and actually said, weren't my stats but the governments. This is how disrespectful TAT are with the rsa.
A charter boat skipper who did attend the meetings warned that the information would be used as a stick to beat the anglers with. how true is that, It was TAT who wielded the stick.
They have distanced themselves from the above telling the PBA they are the ones who will sort the e u management machine out. they were the ones causing it, blaming the e u for the imbalance, they caused it.
I agree with you Norm TAT have now got their feet under the table re managing the rsa and the charter boat skippers. The charter boat scene and angling will decline they will ruin it. It's not broke and don't need fixing, they will ruin it. I have no doubt.
TAT have said that the anglers are not their first and foremost considerations when it comes to their funding stream. The ceo had stated that. Can you see why both salter and Mitchel have job titles that include conservation and no mention of rsa representation. How disrespectful.
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..
