Absolutely agree with you Dave . Very good supplementary point you make regarding team anglers . One could very well be frozen out for the rest of your team fishing career ...long after this crisis has gone .CF - the issue becomes more compounded when "where a bloke who may well have had to save up hard for that £50 ticket money has a choice to make" is also a member of a team whose commitment to the 'team effort' is essential to their performance.
The real danger with this is we run the risk of putting Angling back in the spotlight and jeopardise our freedom to be able to fish as and when we want, back to square one, just at the time when more people than ever are getting involved in fishing and when the tackle trade and fisheries are making hay recouping their earlier losses.
I have bought this thread to the attention of the Angling Trust and welcomed their opinion in line with our policy of involving businesses and organisations where they are discussed within threads.
