hi there I live on a backwater in hoveton im a seasoned angler what I would like to know why is it that people who fish opposite across from me in holiday lets cast across to my side of the river to fish in some cases casting onto my property and boat when all they have to do is fish at their feet if they didn't make so much noise talking and banging about their catch rate will increase

I thought it is closed season at the moment and there should not be any fishing on the broads.

ignorance of angling and its ways is the problem. many novices on the broads so this is what you get.the problem you mention is common to all fisheries up and down the country so its a no brainer.

Probably for the same reason that they have poles halfway across the river. This was cast onto our boat when we were moored up a couple of years back, as SWMBO said it they can't tell the difference between a 30ft boat and a fish they should have gone to Specsavers.  

Best Regards

"Why haven't you asked THEM??????"

Probably out of fear of the response that he will get! Unfortunately the proportion of anglers with a morose disposition seems rather higher than in the general population.
It was put to me last year by an bank side angler that "F****** sailors" should not talk and laugh when they pass anglers. Apparently it scares off the fish!

I do a bit of fishing but I agree with you. It is an unfortunate mentality of some fishermen to do what you describe.

There is a way to stop this stupid practice, just hang a bit of pea netting down the side of your boat and it fouls their tackle and they have to snap their lines off to continue fishing.

The advantage of this is that the numpties soon learn (well most of them who have some semblance of a brain do) not to hit your boat with their tackle and if you are a fisherman it is a good way to acquire some end gear for your fishing.

Hope this helps.  Evil Grin

Perhaps you should switch off the engine and take the sails down too!

Or perhaps the grumpy fishermen should f*** off and fish somewhere where there are no boats.

I really cannot see why people fish if it makes them so unhappy.

Please note that I am a boat owner and a fisherman and I am happy to fish in navigable rivers and even have a friendly chat with passing boat crews.

The Broads have always had conflicts over it's differing uses. It really comes down to an individuals behaviour. There is no reason why the different factions can't get along. Of course the reality can often be different. As Children we used to fish the Broads in a rather carefree and haphazard manner, and even then Other fishermen often took things a bit to seriously.  Putting yourself in different peoples shoes often makes you see some of the problems. That applies to all aspects of the Broads.  We were sailing at speed along the Thurne one day and coming around a bend, close to the bank I suddenly heard this whizzing sound followed by a shout. That was the first I knew that a fishing line was flying over my forestay before the hook just missed me. The fisherman was completely obscured from view, but he/she must have been able to see us. Again motoring along on a Broads Cruiser  you see bad attitude among the sailing folk, and of course vice versa. All that said I feel we see more good attitude than bad.

Simple answer, by the time the terminal gear reaches the bottom it will be no where near where it was cast, the Tide wil have taken it down stream and the resistance on the line will have drawn it more to the centre of the River and likewise the pendulum action weill mean that while the initial impact is close to your bank the final position of the terminal gear will be much closer to the cetre of the River which is generally the deepest part.

if it is to be it is up to me.
