whilst watching central news whilst making some pike traces i heard something mention that made me look up.
it appears that a religous group, i believe he said hindus are finding it a financial burden to have there dead relatives/loved ones ashes scatterd on the river ganges in india.
So they are looking at applying for a strech of the river soar with a view to having it dedicated to allow them to scatter the ashes on there.
I am unable to post my view on this but i thought that you would like to know.

Martin,

They could give the ashes to me and I would mix them in with my groundbait. Make a nice dark mix for clear water.

Martin,

Received your PM. I liked it.

I often use curry powder to flavour luncheon meat and maggots. Would make a good substitute.

I'd say I prefer to keep an open mind on this one and don't really have any views for or against. But a thought crossed my mind whilst reading this thread...

Suppose you were fishing a peg on the Soar and had spent some time baiting your swim and got em going really well. Then, along comes someone who throws ashes from a bridge just upstream from you...

Could the fish you have in your swim be tempted to follow the cloud that has suddenly appeared in the water?

Sorry if its a dumb question, as I don't do much river fishing [:I]

Joking apart lads,

A similar application was made in Leeds a couple of years ago and was turned down.
The local Hindu community applied for permission to scatter their families ashes over the River Aire above the Kirkstall Abbey stretch. The application also included plans for a funeral pyre/crematorium.

I'm not sure exactly on what grounds the application was refused but I believe it was to do with ethics

In all honesty if someone has an objection to plans then they need to approach the planning office in that locality to establish what the plans entail and then make a formal objection stating their reasons.
Ethics is a good start bearing in mind that the area downstream would be used for recreational purposes, etc

Dave

(ps Keep the thread free from racists comments as I don't want a load of complaints landing on my doormat [:)])

If anyone wants their ashes scattered in the Trent, I'm taking bookings now. It will only cost you 5000-00p per kilo. [;)][;)][;)]

In that case, at my present weight, I'd better get a second mortgage, just to pay for the funeral!!!!!!
