    One chance to fix our fisheries

    I hope every member has done but not told everyone? No brainer.

    Don't underestimate a woman

    A woman ran a red traffic light and crashed into a man's car Both of their cars are demolished but amazingly neither of them was hurt. After they crawled out of their cars, the woman said; "Wow, just look at our cars! There's nothing left, but fortunately we are unhurt. This must be a sign from God that we should meet and be friends and live together in peace for the rest of our days." The man replied," I agree with you completely. This must be a sign from God!" The woman continued, "And look at this, here's another miracle. My car is completely demolished, but my bottle of 75 year old scotch didn't break. Surely God meant for us to drink this vintage delicacy and celebrate our good fortune." Then she handed the bottle to the man. The man nods his head in agreement, opened it, drank half the bottle and then handed it back to the woman The woman took the bottle, immediately put the cap back on, and handed it back to the man. The man asks, "Aren't you having any?" She replies, "Nah. I think I'll just wait for the police." Some years ago Adam ate the apple.

  13. Welcome to your August Sea Newsletter Recreational Fishing In New UK Fisheries Bill Proposals Last month the government published its long-awaited White Paper setting out proposals for a UK Fisheries Bill once the UK leaves the EU. A number of positive proposals have been made for recreational fishing after extensive lobbying by the Angling Trust. We will be responding to the consultation on the White Paper in the coming weeks. Read more about the Angling Trust's reaction to the White Paper here European Anglers Alliance Demands Reinstatement of Bass Bag Limit The European Anglers Alliance has written to the EU Fisheries Commissioner Karmenu Vella demanding a bag limit for recreational catches of bass be reinstated as soon as possible following a review of the evidence about the impact of angling. Unfortunately, a further delay is now expected as the EU Commission takes its holiday in August. Find out more Help needed to report tuna sightings and catches Help us understand more about UK bluefin tuna by reporting your sightings and catches. The Thunnus UK project is asking anglers to report old and new records of sightings and catches. This is an exciting way for Angling Trust members to contribute to the research being done into the presence and abundance of bluefin tuna in UK waters. Find out more about the Thunnus UK project Natural England SSSI proposals could impact sea angling Natural England currently has a live consultation asking whether its existing byelaw-making powers in SSSIs are sufficient. Such byelaws could impact on activities such as bait collection by sea anglers. Find out more about the consultation here. The Angling Trust will be submitting a response saying that we feel their existing powers are more than adequate. Don't delay if you'd like to respond too - the consultation closes on 22nd August. Angling Trust Responds To MCZ Bream Fishing Threat The Angling Trust submitted a response to the consultation on the proposed Purbecks Marine Conservation Zone in Dorset which, if designated, could see restrictions put on recreational fishing for black bream in order to protect breeding fish. Read our response here Joint the Isle of Wight Day Coastal Clean Up Saturday, September 22nd will see the UK’s longest ever coastline clean-up to rid the Island’s beautiful beaches of unwanted plastic waste. For information on why plastic pollution is such a problem check out our Take 5 film here. Find out more Do you collect your own bait?

Take part in the survey New Safety ID Scheme For Boat Angling The Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) and the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) have launched RYA SafeTrx, HM Coastguard’s new official voluntary safety identification scheme. The free to use RYA SafeTrx app is designed to improve safety at sea and potentially cut vital minutes off the time taken to pinpoint a casualty’s location. Find out more Get Fishing at the seaside… Going on your summer holidays? Don’t forget to pack a rod and a few bits of tackle or you’ll regret it when you get there! There are loads of opportunities to get out fishing at the coast even if it’s just for a couple of hours. It’s a great alternative to crabbing on a rainy day and kids love it! All you need are a few small lures or bits of tackle and you can ask where to go at the local tackle shop. Rob Hughes explains all in Get Fishing’s ‘How to Sea Fish’ videos. Tope wins July Species Hunt Berg Power was the Specimen Winner for July in the Species Hunt competition with a superb 25lb 3oz shore-caught tope. Berg used a pulley rig with a whole mackerel fillet as bait. Both the Senior and Junior Species Hunt competitions are tight, with only a few points separating the top three in each category. Check out the latest results here. The Angling Trust is the united national representative body for all angling in England and Wales. It is united in a collaborative relationship with Fish Legal, a separate membership association that uses the law to protect fish stocks and the rights of its members throughout the UK. Joint membership packages with Fish Legal are available for individuals, clubs, fisheries, riparian owners and other categories. Please find out more.

    A new project named Blah ( could get messy)

    My front window was a big one, it now has a polycarbonate (5mm) bonded and bolted to the outside reveal, no chance of that ever happening again . Decided against acrylic, it can still crack etc . I think that's it now , everything seems spot on as It needs to be , the other few bits that need doing are just bling , I always wanted to be safe, it's always be the first priority . Of course the weather is looking crap for this weekend, I'm all ready to go out and get a couple of Bream for the BBQ but I'm a very happy chappie knowing the hard work will have been worth the wait My next post WILL be a catch report with loads of nice piccies. Thanks again to you lot for all the encouragement & support

    Huge difference apparently, the barbless can come out then create a new hook hold/hole. I for one, like a barb and the carp boys are so nuts about what they do, I'll take their word for it. R

    Back to the bass comp ! Why have we cancelled ??? Take or no take makes no difference ! We can still fish for bass [as I have been doing] . We fished it last year ...with the silly one fish limit... and we put most back. So this year we put all back !

    I gave up coarse fishing about 24 years ago so I'm behind in what's current. We had to use barbless when I fished the carp pools.

    Every hook moves about surely ? A barb only prevents the hook from exiting the flesh or skin of a fishes mouth. It doesn’t stop the rest of the bend and shank moving around ! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
