SCOT­TISH LI­CENCE?

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - Letters -

THE ED­I­TOR’S Let­ter [T&S, April] crit­i­cises the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment for not find­ing the “ex­tra £3 mil­lion or so” to run Fish­ery Man­age­ment Or­gan­i­sa­tions. There is also a re­minder that Scot­tish an­glers op­posed the in­tro­duc­tion of a rod li­cence. Should not th­ese two facts be con­nected? Scots, above all, should know that he who pays the piper calls the tune. The Amer­i­cans put it more bluntly; they talk of hav­ing skin in the game. Scot­tish an­glers would be wiser to de­mand a rod li­cence sys­tem, then they might get more at­ten­tion. Chris James, Conwy
