I’m a member of Chester ! Nothing wrong with shrimping all day if that’s the most effective way to fish a lot of the pools down there cos they are very deep and slow moving .
As for us being fishmongers you can’t be further from the truth ,5 tags issued to members isn’t a lot !!! ,personally I’ve used 2 tags and know a lot of others who have used none or one ,I keep a couple per season for my better half cos its her fave and everything else goes back , the way some people talk about the place is laughable ,it certainly isn’t as easy down there as people think ,salmon act the same down there as they do upriver ,some days they’re catchable and some days they ignore everything !!! Defo some Chester based jealousy on here 😂

I hope you get 70+ fish this season mate and enjoy every single take, fight and long distance catch and releases. You buy you're ticket and fish properly so go out and enjoy the sport you all love 🙏🎣👍

I'm glad it wasn't only me that was confused 😅. I think @Andrew B is possibly talking about a different river?
Lol sorry if it came out as confusing, I’m not always good at getting my points across.
Without the long winded story I was trying to reply to the question about fisherman placing themselves above a weir or an obstacle all day and basically taking as many fish as they like?
I did see it myself in Durham a few months ago. I’ll be sure to stay on the river in question next time but I can see why it would wind folk up as most places have rules on fishing places like that.
Fair play for only laughing at me😂

Aye, hes not had one yet this year due to the low water. No doubt he will get a couple as the waters perfect and hes raided my fly boxes for some of my best late season tubes
