Just read a couple of threads on here wanting the FC banned , mainly on the Tweed , Lees owner especially some call Lordy on here , West Learmouth rotate with the Lees , and is W.L. fly only too since new ghillie appointment ? As stated the main problem with the FC is single bank beats mainly on the Tweed that do not rotate and are at loggerheads with each other not just with the FC but pool hogging ,etiquette is non existent so bad i would not return to the beats with this on going problem ,and the ghillies do nothing to prevent this "War of the Worlds" If they see the opposition stepping out of line with RTC rules ? they are on to the phone to them like a ton of bricks, like a bunch of school kids dogging them in, Yes i have witnessed this , there is nowt the opposition likes better than get getting the backs up on the opposite bank, probably most single bank beats have the same problem where fly & spin is allowed, the problem more so if the opposition is fly only and do not rotate, the FC is banned on the Tyne Northumbrian Fed beats (http://www.northumbriananglersfed.co.uk/) maybe more AC's and beats will follow suit banning this prolific spinning lure ? because of deep hooking fish and catches more fish than fly, So rods fishing single bank beats on any river be aware of the poor etiquette on some beats, Double bank beats are the ones to fish a peaceful day .
