Agency is ‘un­fit to carry out sur­vey on fu­ture of fish­ing’

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEKS -

RE­GARD­ING the call from An­gling Times for read­ers to fill in the En­vi­ron­ment Agency on­line sur­vey about the fu­ture of fish­ing (De­cem­ber 4 is­sue), I think this or­gan­i­sa­tion is not fit for this pur­pose. It should be con­ducted through a more re­li­able out­let, such as the an­gling press. Forms could also be sent to tackle shops and it should be made avail­able on an in­de­pen­dent web­site.

I re­cently re­ceived the sur­vey via my Gmail ad­dress and tried – and failed – to fill it in three times, thwarted ev­ery time when the last part of the sur­vey asked for my email ad­dress, only to be told it was not cor­rect.

How the EA con­tacted me, there­fore, re­mains a mys­tery.

Sim­i­larly, for the last two years I have been de­nied a rod li­cence via the in­ter­net be­cause the EA re­fused the pay­ment, ex­plain­ing later (on my en­quiry) that it must be my fault. Thank good­ness for the good old Post Of­fice. M Dash­wood, Bed­ford
