yes I know, what is the ATTRF ?
Angling Trust Thames Region Forum

whose in it ?
Angling Club reps from source to Dartford

what does it do ?
It meets 3 times a year to give anglers opinions to the powers that be

ok, so what's it all about ?

firstly, don't think this is part of a gravy train, not unless you count eating sandwiches and chips as your evening meal, while taking notes and discussing our problems
secondly, time is always of a premium,
thirdly, many of the reps are retired, have been doing it for years, and are eager to hand over the reigns

topics discussed; included last years open meeting at heathrow which was deemed very good
the need for the new river basin panels to have anglers sufficiently represented
the creation of a new freshwater committee, by the Angling Trust
the review of cormorant licenses
a new code of conduct for anglers
the canalising of the kennet and avon
a new Angling Trust mag, which will be sent to members in April/May
Hydropower and how the EA are failing anglers

and finally EA license sales, £500,000 from salmon licenses, £27 million from coarse anglers


so to sum up, what a tangled web angling is, don't expect it to become untangled soon
those present are all doing their best, but need support and assistance
those that are older, have been ground down by the years, but have no-one to fill their shoes

ponder the last statement for a while
we owe it to them to continue there work, we owe it to the next generation, and we owe it to ourselves, to make things better
experience counts for naff all, if you aint helping
whereas the ability to learn can make a mahoosive difference

GET ON IT FOLKS, WE'LL HOLD YOUR HAND, THEY'LL HOLD OURS AND TOGETHER OUR RIPPLE WILL BECOME A TSUNAMI

Mmmmm.....it's not down to the ATr, or anyone else, to tell me what to do/how to act on the bank.

They need to be careful how they come across on this one. If its helpful advice to new anglers, then all well and good.

m8, there aint nuffin wrong with a code of conduct, we already have one, as long as its sensible
if it aint our governing body doing it, it'll be the police, councils or god forbid PETA

I'd be surprised if every sport didn't have a code of conduct, angling has had one for yonks, probably since god was a boy
if it affected our angling, we'd all know all about it, and I can't see that changing
maybe including the need for an unhooking mat, would be deemed excessive, but not leaving litter or eating what lives in or on the river wouldn't

its our sport and our code of conduct, so we'll get it the way that's best for us
