A member was fishing on Dukes Water today and was quite rightly told by a salmon angler that he should not be fishing there during the salmon fishing season. He was fishing illegally.
How many times do we have to say it? How big must the type face be? Is red wording not enough?
There is absolutely no excuse. Read the rules. Read the notices. Look at the website for regularly for news items and updates.
Before fishing our members must read the fishing rules on our website and those those on the membership document and, if they don’t know where Dukes Water is, look at the maps on the website.
We do not own the fishing rights on Dukes Water and are allowed to fish as a concession only. If members abuse this concession it may well be withdrawn and none of us will be able to fish there at all anytime.
