    The RTC is meant to represent all interests on the river. There are 81 commissioners with a slight majority of representatives commissioners appointed by angling clubs and others who represent Scottish Borders and Northumbria councils. The rest are proprietors. I am quite sure if you were interested, you could get involved, especially if there is no one representing the very bottom beats. You should come along to the AGM which is open to all.
    unfortunately, time is valuable, kelso is 50miles from my home, and anything through the day is major hassle, and to rush up at night is a no no, but retirement is looming, and you might regret the invite, now the smolt mortality is traced to the middle and upper river, one would think solving this problem would be a far more important issue than the obsession with more and more method restrictions, every one of our potential and existing rods all asked about the ban and all said they wouldn't join-renew if it had taken place, leaving me to contact the RTC for a update, would you not think we should not have been notified about this considering this time of year is the main re booking period and the money we pay into the system, I have learnt more on here from you than continuous emails to the RTC regarding the situation, you would just about think nobody at the RTC was bothered in any way if anybody at all re books any fishing, or if they do they certainly don't make it easy for them

    I will pass on your concerns Marty.
    Unfortunately, the no spinning thing seems to have spread as a rumour, after Marine Scotland proposed it as an additional form of Spring Salmon Conservation. Given that the RTC were totally opposed to any ban, it was never going any further. Unfortunately, that fact has not been communicated as well as the rumour about a spinning ban.
    It may be nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

    lets hope that's the end of it for a very long time! unlike the SNP with their almost monthly new reason for another referendum, in the mean time thank you for your kind help and information regarding the RTC and hope we both have a better season, regards marty

    I was thinking about you today when I saw the river levels.
    Hope it's not too bad!
    I would think that Tweedhill and Horncliffe may be in the same predicament too, and quite a few more probably.
    All the best,
    Paul.
