Why should a bream an­gler have to pay carp fish­ing prices?

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

I LIVE in Ellesmere, Shrop­shire, and we are sur­rounded by fish­ing lakes known as meres. As a dis­abled an­gler I am dis­gusted at the prices we are be­ing asked to pay to fish these. The lo­cal club charges £135-plus per year.

These prices are for carp an­glers, but as I can no longer carp fish I have turned to day­time match-style fish­ing. How­ever, I still love to fish for bream. Now the meres are full of these but I feel that my lo­cal club is only in­ter­ested in carp an­glers and not those who want to fish dur­ing the day.

I have tried to con­tact the club and have not had a re­ply to a num­ber of emails. I have also found out that it has no in­sur­ance for dis­abled an­glers and that it has now stopped is­su­ing day tick­ets.

The Shrop­shire meres are nat­u­ral wa­ters and should be avail­able for ev­ery­one to fish. The peo­ple who run the club are ru­in­ing it for ev­ery­one, in my opin­ion. Dave Mohrhardt, email
