I've also heard the same thing Loxie but I'll refrain from naming the beatsI'm told some of the prestigious Tweed beats are not prepared to offer refunds. With rapidly declining catches on Tweed and a general decline in angler numbers I can't help question their wisdom in treating their customers in such a cavalier manner.
Have heard the same and, likewise, won't name these beats. Some owners seem to be oblivious to the health of their businesses and seem to believe that they are still in a seller's market. They haven't realised that they have increasingly less to sell as the catch returns and thin spring and autumn runs now verify. However they still think they have the upper hand because they are XXXX, XXXX, XXXX (won't name them)....and have been historically able to charge a premium and turn interested non-tenants away in a cursory manner.I've also heard the same thing Loxie but I'll refrain from naming the beats
Sadly it looks like everyone of us is going to take a hit, some more than othersSelfish.....many folks have paid serious monies to go fishing and have booked weeks that are into the thousands, this is in no way aimed at individuals.....more the estates / Beat owners who just expect fishers to soak up the loss! For me anyway I would have thought more of them if they honoured the "once in a lifetime event" as a number have already! For too long estates have assumed the client should take the hit and this is aimed right at them!
Sorry to hear of your job loss and hope you regain and/or are employed elsewhere soon.
I not surprised you need them in the office they are definitely a must have around Stephanie . I even need to wear them to bed as her constant snoring is unbearable :help:Arnie I hope you have good Ear defenders as I need them when she is in the office:lol:
Personally, I wouldnt want mine back. Without the money, they lose the fishing- although I'd note that I may be in a slightly better position than others at this time.Fair point and well made.
Just out of interest should angling associations / clubs return subscriptions if this goes on for months.....?
Some fees are hundreds of pounds which many a member may well need in the months ahead.
Good luck for next week :lol:I bet Talla will have sore pawsI not surprised you need them in the office they are definitely a must have around Stephanie . I even need to wear them to bed as her constant snoring is unbearable :help:
Could yous not have isolated her in the office by herself ? we're only 4 day's in and my head is bursting . You guys that work with her really do deserve a medal

No apart from "you can claim on your travel insurance". I will post their response tomorrow on a separate thread in the hope some legal boffin can comment. Considering the support available to SME companies in the leisure industry I am just amazed at their attitude.Did they attempt any justification?
That could be tricky. Most travel insurances I believe specifically exclude war and pandemics.No apart from "you can claim on your travel insurance". I will post their response tomorrow on a separate thread in the hope some legal boffin can comment.
