I bet that gear gets used once then stuck in a cupboard, the E.A hardly ever bailiff during the day.
I could rhime off several incidents local to myself where they were tolf of groips of EE's poaching and they said there was no one available to come out, as they were on holiday, or they just didn't come out.....total wasters!

I wonder how much of that kit will ever see a bank but strangely will be missing in an audit in a decades time?
No night vision camera for getting evidence thoughi guess any poachers will hear the "officers" coming miles away and be long gone in anywhere but easily got to areas where they can lie in wait and watch from the comfort of their landrover getting overtime.

Most probably if trout are involved aswell !
The EA with regularity empty the stretch i fish in ,all the trout are not removed for some reason as if its some sort of natural river full of natural brown trout ,strange the ones they return are rainbows who ofcourse have been stocked in enough numbers to starve any wild brown trout long ago.
As soon as the course fish get to any size to make it worth fishing the buggers charge up the batteries and electrofish them again ,its hardly worth the effort the wey between tilford and farnham is devoid of anything worth catching except in the odd pool the boat cannot get to ,one stretch fed 20 or so cormerants until they turned their attention to the lakes where food was more plentiful.
Where were the ea them?
And their water management a joke ,the weir at Waverley abbey stands 8 feet high the water behind it less than a foot deep because it's silted up because they are useless as slow water deposits silt so the bloody weir needs lowering or removing completely so the river speeds up to remove it
In the 70's they did an archaeological dig in the river below the weir and found the river bed in the 12th century was 4-6ft deeper than it is now and wide enough for barges to transport the stone to build the abbey it looks like what was obviously a decent river full of fish has gone downhill with the ea (and the preceding waterboards) turning it into a fishless stream fit for nothing but the entertainment of monied fluff chuckers who only appear to use 500 yards on one bank i have the use of the opposite one ples a few hundred yards below and above inc the fishless mud hole that used to be fantastic
