All,

 

Just returned from one of my Vagabond type bucket list adventures.  And adventure it was, more later.

 

The Sandhill Cranes, all 700,000 of them, migrate from Central America to Siberia during March via Grand Island Neberska.  They put on about 15% more weight for the rest of the journey  Whilst I wouldn't give it back things could have gone better.  I could have done without the broken hand, wrist, and forearm.  Hense, this brief message typed one handed.

BTW a plethora of other bird species tag along.  NO, I didn't get a look at the Whooping Crane (the gold standard)

looks like you have been in the wars phone, chill out and get well soon mate.


 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..

Angling is more than just catching fish, if it wasn't it would just be called 'catching'......... John
