Richard Ferre chairman of the NFSA explained to the minister " that anglers seldom caught specimens anymore and any fish they did catch were often to small to take home"

Who is he trying to kid, what planet is that man on, A quick look around on the photo galleries of the charter boats reveals loads of fish and all specimens even half a ton of cod fillets ready for the freezers

It seems to me that even angling reps are in denial over what anglers collectively catch, perhaps thats because there are to many to keep track of

That's like saying there isn't a problem with people increasingly struggling to pay their mortagages, because the magazines are still full of pictures of people arriving at posh nightclubs in expensive clothes, getting out of their 'top of the range' cars.

Surely thats the same with Coarse fishing not everyone catches fish but we still need to pay for a NRA licence if we catch or not.
But at least the NRA licence fee pays towards the upkeep of the waters and stocking plans, not all anglers see this but it does goes on.

I haven't seen the details but what will it be spent on if the sea anglers have to pay for a licence even if they fish in estuaries?

Errrrr, the work that the ea do is heavily subsidised by the rate payer, same will happen if there is a licence scam, err tax on the rsa. Details proposed are carparks, slipways, toilet blocks, signage, Hidden costs will be an army of tax collectors, police to check you have a licence, blue chip pension scheme for all and sundry as is the ea scam. Benifits, can't name any, can anyone think of any?

 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..

What a load of tosh! A few boat anglers fishing miles from shore over wrecks etc might have good catches sometimes, but how about the shore anglers?
They catch next to nothing most of the time, because ruddy trawlers can fish up to the beaches, and frequently do.

Now here is the nitty gitty boat anglers are having a good time and some beach anglers are not, so angling reps tell the minister that all anglers are catching nought, is this mis-represention on behalf of the angling reps then????? and on that basis anglers are applying for the golden mile

I know alot of beach anglers that catch alot of nice fish.

It seems to me that angling reps see DEFRA as an easy touch and are trying it on, theres no proof of what anglers catch and DEFRA know that and that is why angling licences and bag limits are looming, licence conditions willl be catch returns so as defra can then determine what effect anglers are having on fish stocks

Commercials will fight against the golden mile more so than what they did regarding the bass mls
