Environment Agency Byelaws

I would like the EA to be force to reckon with but....

 

If they are unable to get a licence to you, or even acknowledge that you have paid for it..

show little interest in those flouting the closed season

plan river water levels so that they hinder wildlife,

 

 

well, I feel that the EA is really just a token...

I have saved a copy of the EA's bylaws as I always use it as a good ref point for when i go out with rod and line-I think it is a good idea for all anglers to read through them so that they stay famil

If Jai is on here looking for the bye-law that we were talking about tonight, you can find it in the Misdlands region regulations where it says:

 


No person shall -
i) in fishing with rod and line for salmon in the Severn area use
any float in conjunction with any lure or bait.
ii) in fishing with rod and line for trout or any fish other than
freshwater fish during the annual close season for freshwater
fish, use any float or bait
(which term includes ground bait)
other than artificial or natural fly (which term excludes
bloodworms, jokers and other midge larvae), spinners,
minnows, worms, prawns or shrimps.
NB. any fish other than freshwater fish excludes salmon for the
purpose of this byelaw (see section 3).

What a bunch of moaners!

My local EA team in the Northwest are seriously undemanned and under resourced yet they still do a fantastic job. This year alone they've worked with us (the local PAC) on a number of poaching incidents, even doing stakeouts in sub-zero temperatures. They've given us a load of tackle to use in our coaching events. They've provided workshops for bailiffs, fishery managers and on invasive species - all free of charge. They're assisting me in my fishery survey. In fact they are totally committed to fisheries work and they're making a difference to the quality of our sport right across the region.

 

 

Try working with them and not against them - you might be surprised what happens!

Eric I think you've missed the point mate. Most of us who work with the grass roots EA guys have nothing but respect for them. Our concerns lay (as do the guys them selves!) with the way money (or lack of it) is used.

And thats my "non indicative opinion"!

Unfortunately we notice what the EA are not doing rather than what they do.

Just like my wife really no matter how much i do around the house she always spots what i didnt do first.

everytime i catch a fish i'm lucky when i blank i'm a hopeless angler.

Yes, that's what I've found Eric. They do a decent job. Regrettably some anglers bite the hands that care for them. Was ever so, even back in the days of the river authorities.

Great people !every few years they strip the river of all life in the village and give the fish to someone else

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

Grangers law : anything i say will  turn out the opposite or not happen at all!

Yes actually, they do! Well, at least they do here in Lancashire!

 

the last time I called (from Burnley) to report illegal fishing they sent someone out from Lancaster. That's quite a drive, which shows that the people I've dealt with really do try!

 

The last time I called about out of season fishing on my local river, the EA guy arrived at the river bank just as the culprits were leaving, so he had nothing to charge them with. Fair play to them - at least they got someone there, even if they weren't quite quick enough.

 

 

But they didn't !

 

Possible explanation

 

 

"It's boring here in the office Nige, and there's a complaint from the other side of the county. Let's take a drive out, and call at the chippy on the way - it makes a change from routine - no hurry, with a bit of luck they will be gone before we arrive"

 

I missed that reply at the time, and came across it by accident just now. After a lifetime of experience of officialdom's response to the call of duty, I am somewhat less trusting than Janet.
