Great work being done by the EA and Angling Trust voluntary Bailiff scheme catching yet more people illegally fishing. Hoping the scheme is extended to the Northwest soon. Stay vigilant my friends and don't hesitiate to phone the EA Hotline number on the front of your licences.
Positive article in today's Angling Times from Ben Miles - anglers, the Environment Agency and Angling Trust Voluntary Bailiff Service all working together to combat poaching, fish theft, illegal close season fishing and rod licence evasion. As they used to say in our Fisheries Enforcement Manager's former profession 'Together we'll crack it'; there's no other way.
