PostSubject: Daily Mail and poaching   Fri Aug 05, 2011 1:57 pm

Took a while to decide to whether to post this link up.

Firstly as we know very well on here, it is a small minority causing these problems, if our overseas members/ friends are an example, the alarmist side of this article is plain wrong. Yes there are problems, just read the guardians report thread, but seems to tar everyone with the same brush.

It has only become headline news as it involves game fish, maybe nothing else swims in the rivers? That point could create a thread on it's own.

All rivers are affected, not just the rich and noteworthy.

As for wide scale orgainsed criminal activity, again maybe on the Wye, but on all river?

The EA have tweeted that this article is not from them, the gentleman quoted is well known on many combative forums.

Worth also reading some of the comments posted

Sure there is more to say, but here you go..

everyone loves a game, a game fish that is

the more these circumstances are highlighted in the general press, the more general public will understand

hows about telling these fish and fowl eaters that it is legal to take one canadian goose for the pot each and everyday
