    Default Just a thought if the NRW proposals are implemented.

    I wonder what would be the situation that a club could find itself in.

    A member renews his membership to a club then the NRW impose their new legislation for all clubs in Wales to adhere to.

    The member is unhappy with this and ask the club for a refund as the membership is not:

    Fit for purpose - as it was intended for when he orginally purchased it for fishing.

    Just a thought.

    That's a good point. If the NRW does indeed implement their proposals for the coming season, it will be at disgracefully short notice, both for clubs to change their rules, subscription rates, etc, and for anglers making decisions about membership renewals, holiday plans, etc. I am tempted to suggest that clubs should refuse to cooperate in the implementation: let the NRW enforce their new rules, if it can.

    Incidentally, having submitted my response to the NRW "consultation", I received a reply from them on December 14th. This was quite clearly a formula answer, intended to deal with a range of expected complaints, which did not in any way address the points I had actually made. I replied immediately to say as much, and to demand a properly considered response. No answer from them as yet, notwithstanding their declared aim to reply within 10 working days.

    Just received this from today Meeting at Bangor today with the NRW.

    My personal view so far is no matter what the paying licence holder contributes regarding petions etc it seems to fall on deaf years.

    All,


    This is just a quick update on todays decision on C&R and method restrictions.* We had an opportunity to talk to the Board members and there was a lot of concern about the way the consultation had been handled.* At the meeting several expressed concerns with a recommendation that the decision be delayed for 12 months in order to fully engage with stakeholders.* For a short time it seemed that the Chair (Diane McCrea) was going to support this.* However she deferred to the Executive Team who insisted that it could not wait for 12 months as fish stocks were so low.* The end result is that she approved the proposals as they stand and will refer them to the Welsh Government (Lesley Griffiths) for final approval.* One concession was that the river restoration program is to start immediately (we have heard that said before).* The Board members asked that as soon as possible an 'away day' be organised with the Fisheries Team and stakeholders to discuss how the proposals are taken forward; this should have happened before the decision was made.

    We now have to lobby our AMís if we are to get the decision overturned; its not over yet but we have a fight on our hands.

    I will write up the notes I took at the meeting and draft a letter for AMís over the weekend.
