the EA are keen to enlist your support in looking after the river

to this end they would like to set up a meeting between you, that are interested and themselves, to bring this about

basically keep your eyes on a swim or stretch of riverbank and let them know what you see, they wont have an excuse no more folks

post your interest on here and we'll all go to the meeting and get it all rocking'n'rolling

nice one adrian, thats pukka, although I doubt if their response time will change much in the beginning

the idea to all this is that we give the EA the info, they put it all together, and instead of sending bailiffs to a day ticket or club water, they can pre-plan to turn up at sunbury and catch those out of season carpers

it'll take time, but it'll look better in their reports if they start nabbing those on the river

my only concern is that the odd slippery customer, on his own wont be enough to warrant a pre planned visit, but we wont know anything unless we all pull together and try

thats fair enough mate , count me in for that stretch .

i phoned them up probably 10 times in last years close season with most being eastern europeans , but did report a few carbellers bivvied up !!!

theyre aware when i spoke to the ea and said that it tends to be a hotspot for out of season fishing at sunbury , so thats a good start , well on the way to get the area monitored , and hopefully get them red carded !!

nice one keith, thats another gap filled

in the next few weeks those that have stepped forward, will be invited to a meeting organised by the EA, to explain what this idea is all about and how it'll work

lets surprise'em with a proper TAC turnout, it dont matter if you've only got an hour a month, or if someone else is keeping an eye on your favourite stretch/swim, the more eyes the better

if we can make this work, it'll lead to other things that will make our sport even better

Hi James,
I live overlooking the Thames just south of Hammersmith Bridge, at certain times of the year,(mainly early summer time), my view point can offer you sights, that as an angler, will make your mouth water, by that i mean great gatherings of huge black shapes, (fish spawning).
In the close season up to half a dozen ivans turn up to cast their great big balls of paste via the use of beachcaster rods, knowing full well that they are breaking the law, they must have a licence to fish in the first place, so they must know the rules about the close season.
On a couple of occasions i have attempted to contact the EA, but have been fobbed off by some penpusher who said they would look into it.
The local plod patrol this stretch on horseback and yet these guys are always there in the close season.
I have a question for you or anybody else reading this:
How far up the Thames can you legally fish for salt/brackish water species?
cheers

james, I was told a few years back that the EA considered the tidal to end at the thames barrier, therefore above that you need a license and the relevant byelaws apply

nice one ken, another area tended

All this volunteering is cracking lads, keep it up.

We could do with several volunteers per stretch as then we have more eyes and ears, so please step forward even if one of the other lads has said they can cover your local stretch.

I'd happily do walton/desborough but someones already put their name up for that, guess an extra pair or eyes never hurts though, could do laleham/staines as well

2 or 3 members per stretch would be ideal - the more eyes and ears the better.

Hi Rob. Sounds good we could both keep our eyes open on that area. Maybe we could also meet up now and again to do it together. I will try to do a Walton newsletter once a month through the close season to report on going ons and the bridge work so please any thing you or other members hear please let me know by posting or leave messages at Cino's.Also if we report anything we could let each other know as well as the TAC, that way we can all make sure we keep on top of it.

Cheers Rob yes we are very keen but its pinning down the EA, busy people at times.

I am collating a list and looking at what areas we have not covered yet. Plus looking at what we can do as the guardians. Next step then to arrange for the EA to come done and speak at a gathering somewhere, plus get it in writing.

Thanks again chaps Smile
