Jonnieb it's a mistake as under Scottish law it's illegal to chap a salmon before 1st of May so no you can't even if the Committee bollixed up the permitsAny one know of the reason why a big ticket holder is allowed to take a springer from the system from the 1st of April when the leven ticket is the 1st of may seems to be unfair .
Think you`re mixed up , is it not the 1st of April under Scottish law ? Don`t want to start another ccr debate but there is absolutely no evidence that chapping an April rod caught fish as against a May fish makes the slightest difference to salmon runs , results in more springers and is therefore a crucial component of salmon conservation. Others may think differently , however , their views are based solely on dogma , with no evidence to back up their thesis that April run fish are a different breed to May, June , July or August run fish. Personally, I`m of the view that if you wish to retain a fish it should always be one that is in prime edible condition and I prefer to return fish later in the season. That used to be the old orthodoxy of some very wise anglers in the distant past but like much in the modern age , their thinking has been turned upside down by the new kids on the block.Jonnieb it's a mistake as under Scottish law it's illegal to chap a salmon before 1st of May so no you can't even if the Committee bollixed up the permits
It states on the annual report that you can keep a fish from 1st May
On the big ticket it says 1st of April has done for the last 3 years also you cannot fish with out your ticket if it’s not on you won’t be able to fishIt states on the annual report that you can keep a fish from 1st May
That's all very well for existing members who have seen the annual report.1st of may is what it says as above. That’s the ruling for full members . There’s obviously a mistake on the permit and not some conspiracy to get one over non members
My point above is still the same jonnieb. If someone has a ticket which states something in writing and there is no requirement for them to read any facebook, blog, forum or website then they should not be held responsible for making a mistake.Mystery solved LLAIA UPDATED THERE WEBSITE last night on when you can take a fish now if only one of the committee members could have replied to my original post last week it could have been sorted out a lot quicker
