Re: Photos by Paul Hitchman and others

To be honest, this forum is probably the worst on the net for advice, photos or general fishing chat. You only have to look at some of the topics and questions asked. Probably 500 views for maybe one response.

Re: River Wye new Salmon fishing by laws

Never caught a salmon in my life, or actually fished for them. But if you're fishing a spinner for instance what's to say you are not after perch or pike or even chub?? If a salmon took the spinner would you be breaking the law? My mate has caught 3 salmon whilst spinning for pike on the upper Severn. The same applies to worms and prawns. Most people just use them as bait for anything that comes along. Lots of anglers use worms for barbell.........and I've had some massive perch on prawns. Its all very confusing

Fishing rights to the small Birmingham rivers

Evening everyone. Quick question that you guys might know the answers too.
There are several small rivers that run through the middle of Birmingham, The Cole, Tame and Rae and their tributaries. I know that the Tame and the Cole, although mainly shallow surprisingly contains quite a health head of fish. I was wondering if any of the members have ever fished these, or if anyone knows who owns the fishing rights to these rivers. I've walked the River Cole at Coleshill and got talking to a chap who said it was free fishing and contained chub to 3lb, perch, roach dace and some trout!!
Would love to find out more information so if anyone can help it would be appreciated

Re: Bailiffs and their behaviour

Well, the last reply on the Facebook post says that the incident has now been dealt with by the BAA
Would be interesting to see what their outcome was, but doubt we will ever find out.
On a brighter note, a big thanks to those bailiffs who look after our waters, members and offer help whenever they can. There's plenty of them out there.

Re: Bailiffs and their behaviour

Yes I realise that in the "rules" is states no fishing without a licence, but surely once you have paid then you become a member straight away?? In this day and age bank transfer of money is direct and with the use of the internet, mobile phones, paypal, etc etc...its very easy to prove a purchase online. We are in 21st century lads!!!
As for knowing if he was actually a BAA bailiff, well, the only people who would know for sure going on the descriptions given in the online post would be the Association themselves. This is a BAD situation. Was even talks of retaliation on the thread.
Fortunately most of my river fishing is done on the Upper Severn around Welshpool. The Bailiff there is one of the nicest blokes I've met in fishing. Mike and his wife Ann are a credit to the association. Have even offered to meet up and show my around the miles and miles of upper severn water available to me.
