If you go back to the first lockdown the Angling Trust set out guidelines which didn’t seem to be backed up by law hence matches were happening legally before the Angling Trust gave the go ahead.I've said on here that I'm no great fan of the Angling Trust, (it's a long story going back 9 years), but they are now established as anglings representative body. In that role they have sought, and received clarity from the Government, as to what we, as anglers, can and can't do. They've passed this on to the rest of us to try and avoid any confusion. With this in mind, why is this guy blaming it all on the Angling Trust, they are just the messengers?
I don't know this guy, or the fishery/club he represents, and after seeing his video where he's whinging and moaning like a petulant, foulmouthed school kid, I'm glad that I don't. Sadly, for the image of angling, it appears that he has quite a few fans though.
I’m a member of the Angling trust, attend meeting and back what they are trying to do but there is a big lack of mistrust from a large section of the match angling fraternity that the Angling trust don’t seem to be too bothered about bridging and I think that in the main comes down to poor communication.
I’m not one for ranting or raving or trying to demonise people for simply fishing. It’s quite clear Lee has a problem with the Angling trust and the CRT and I reckon if they all got together and had a chat about they would find common ground and move on.
And to reiterate I was not at the match but I communicate with Lee on FB so if anyone would like to check back through the posts you will see what I said on here is on the HanKat F/B page.
