ROD LICENCE

The introduction of a levy on anglers has taken a step closer.  The Stakeholders Reference Group are advocating the introduction of a “management and development levy” raised directly from individual anglers that should be based on an annual fee, but offer a shorter term (eg week/month) option to cater for visitors and occasional anglers.  Sounds very much like a rod licence.  The relevant document can be read at http://www.gov.scot/Resource/0049/00498704.pdf

If you don't want to see the introduction of a rod licence then tell the government your views on their online consultation at  https://consult.scotland.gov.uk/wild-fisheries-reform-team/draft-wild-fisheries-strategy/consultation/intro/view


TROOT TAX

We had the Pole Tax
We have the Bedroom Tax
Is a TROOT TAX next?

84 of our clubs have let us know the views of their members on rod licences. 78 of them (92%) don't want a rod licence


ROD LICENCE

The next stage of the process in the wild fisheries review can be viewed at the link below.  The possibility of rod licences in some form or another is still very much on the agenda and it is recommended that you read paragraphs 43 to 46



The Wild Fisheries Review report (where wild fisheries means all salmon and freshwater fisheries including stillwaters) was submitted to the Scottish Government at the end of 2014 and the government consultation period came to an end in August 2015. The report advocated the introduction of a ROD LICENCE and in case you are unaware of the review findings and the governments response you can read them at http://www.gov.scot/Resource/0046/00460195.pdf and http://www.gov.scot/Resource/0047/00476999.pdf

Scottish Club Championship Donation to Yorkhill

At each of the Saturday night heats, semi-finals and finals of the Scottish Club Championship and the Champion of Champions, the anglers are encouraged to donate £1 each which is donated to the Cardiac Unit of Yorkhill Childrens Hospital.  Many of the clubs also donate the cheques that they receive as prizes in the finals.

On 25th February, Brian Mackenzie of the 2015 Scottish Club Champions, Neilston FF, along with Jim Crawford from finalists Change FF AC met with Amy Aitken from the Yorkhill Childrens Hospital Cardiac Unit and handed over a cheque for the £8,512 which has been donated by the anglers who took part in the Scottish Club Championships and Champion of Champions.  Amy was overwhelmed by the generosity of the anglers and explained that the money will be used for heart monitors. On behalf of Yorkhill Childrens Hospital she thanked everyone who had made a donation.
