A copy of the mail I just fired off to the AT.
Doe's anyone have Mark Llloyds direct mail address?
Having read the disgusting article written by Keith Arthur for the Angling Times, subsequently posted all over the Internet regarding kicking Sea Anglers out of the Angling Trust,I never thought it could get any worse. This morning Sunday 16th January it actually did. On Mr Arthurs Radio Show ‘Fishermans Blues’ 1035 AM Radio Talksport we were treated as Sea Anglers to a tirade of lies regarding Sea anglers selling there catches. The ‘Link’ to the show has been posted around Internet fishing forums for Sea Anglers to listen too and make there minds up once and for all just what a member on your ‘Advisory panel’ and I can only assume with the backing of the AT, actually think of Sea Anglers. I think this has just about finished off what little credibility the AT had left in the eyes of RSA.Having been into Charter angling for over 40 years I have no evidence of anglers of RSA selling fish.As a member of your Advisory panel,doe’s Mr Arthur or indeed the AT have evidence of this happening? Proper evidence, not hearsay.We now seem to have a weekly campaign in one way or the other, which seems to stem from the AT in order to get Sea anglers licensed or restricted.
What Sea anglers should be doing is kicking the AT from sea angling, not the other way around as Mr Arthur would have.
As a Charter Skipper I will certainly do all I can to advise anglers and I will also make it known to other skippers not to give there hard earned money to an organisation that see’s them as Thieves and criminals.
A copy of the link to the show is here should you or any others at AT wish to listen to what was said. The segment you need too listen to is approx 11 minutes into the podcast.
Why Worry Angling Charters.
