Remember one £ equates to two $.

Just read what prices we are expected to pay over here and this is just to be on the bankside or on the river with a rod.

Could they soon be bringing such measures over there.

Good tax raiser. :lol:

Remember these are DAILY prices

Re: Could it happen over there.

Followed the link but didn't see any info related to fees for fishing. Must be doing something wrong or perhaps the page has changed.

Holy Cow! Now I see how you can afford to give rods away. You must be loaded to fish in the UK, and here people complain at having to spend fifty dollars a YEAR!

No it couldn't happen over here because the fish belong to the citizens and tribal members of the state. It could have but we kicked your arses back to jolly 'ol England so that we could be free from a tyranical monarchy. :evil:

Oh I think it very well could happen here, in time. When you have people who insist on fishing endangered and declining stocks what other options do you have besides a persons pocketbook to try and preserve them. It's apparently past the point where closing the river would be the best option so you just start making it out of reach.
One question I do see in RvW's post. Who owns the fish in your rivers SJ?

"Thus, nobody may fish for salmon in rivers or estuaries or in the sea within territorial limits without permission of the Crown or the party vested in the Crown rights. In many cases in rivers, estuaries and in the sea, the rights have been granted to private individuals, companies, local authorities and others. Salmon fishing rights are heritable titles and may be held separately from ownership of the land or may have been given along with ownership of the land. Where the right is held separately from the land, the proprietor of the right has an implied right of access for the purpose of exercising his right to fish for salmon. The fishing right must be exercised in such a way that it causes the least prejudice to the rights of the riparian owner."

I know of a certain place on the Wind River where you have to pay grandma $200.00 a year to get a key to cross her land to enter US Forest Service land to fish for salmon. Tdown: But, the problem is grandma only gives out 100 keys a year! The
process is ran by a fishing club near the Wind River. The kind of stuff in the UK could, and may happen here. I seem to recall just a week ago that allotments were being set on the Columbia river. That is government telling us what to do.
ALL things can happen, if we LET it happen. nuke:

You can fish for free down at the estuary, also in a few towns along the route. But once it gets past Perth then you have to pay thro the nose as the land surrounding the river is privately owned.

The fish belong to no one as they are mostly wild. Even the few put in by Enviromental Agency do not belong to them once they are freed. Some are released tagged but there is none of the mass releases like there is over there.

If a river is considered clean enough and it was known that salmon once ran along it in the old days then the EA might release a few salmon and monitor to see if they return to the river. They have been releasing a few into the Thames and hoping that in years to come their numbers will grow.

Perhaps the price would be worth it, depending on what the river is made of.......

Strong, full, mellow. Alness River (The only still allowed to drain water from the River.) wink:
