We used to use sausages as bait when I was a carp fisherman back in the days when Dick Walker caught Clarissa the 44lb carp but we never thought of using meatballs.   Gasp

From a purely selfish perspective.... I too relish the small part of the year when you can sail without the hindrance of fishing rods and those daft poles.
I firmly believe that the Broads are for all and all activities. However it is nice to just be able to sail unhindered in that break.

Perhaps we should have a closed season for all boating activity, to give the anglers a rest from having to keep retrieving their lines and moving their kit to allow boats to moor. I’m sure that is a proposal that would have JP’s full support.  Evil Grin

"...moving their kit to allow boats to moor."

I'm glad it's not "removing their kit" because in a lot of cases that would have frightened away not only holiday makers but fish as well, I would have thought!  Now if nubile young ladies could be persuaded.... I reckon you would be able to sneak the odd 40 footer in Evil Grin

I’m both an Angler and a boater so can see things from both sides but one thing to remember is that the Fishing license generates around £60 million p.a. To enable the E.A. To carry the work they do, the B.A. Tolls generates about £3 million of which probably no more than half goes directly into “maintaining navigation”  Ban Anglers and take away the E.A.’s responsibilities to the Rivers and Broads and either the Tolls would have to rise massively, if you took away the boats and lost the the income from the tolls then fishing licenses would have to be put up approx £1.50 to make upthe difference. The Broads are there for all to enjoy not for one interrest group alone.
