    Thanks for posting this on your front page Alistair, much appreciated. Just hope someone is able to get the point across for me!

    Have just read the contributions in the forum on what to bring up at the River Kelvin agm on Friday. A recurring request was for effective river bailiffs. Do we have any? I coach the uni football team who play next to the kelvin at the science park and on saturday afternoon I incredulously observed two bait anglers on the beat between the two bridges next to the Beatson. Our main pitch borders this stretch. We’re playing on the same pitch next saturday and unless our ‘bailiffs’ get there first(!) I’m willing to bet that i’ll be able to take a pic on my phone this time of our sporting anglers.

    Harry – aye, were they static fishing or holding their rods?

  4. harry · February 24, 2009

    During the short time I looked at them they seemed to be doing both. Is that significant?

  5. scotty9 · February 24, 2009

    Yep, the rod must be held in the hand when salmon fishing, thus no set-lining allowed.

    I think that the main point here is that they were fishing out of season !!

    I think the Salmon season started mid february on the Kelvin Alan (I think it is the 10th February)

    Nobody should be fishing because no permits have been issued yet.

  9. Alistair · February 24, 2009

    Hey bravo75 – thanks for commenting – I suppose in an ideal world that would be the case however if the permits are not out then some people are so desperate they might just chance their arm before they are printed.

    Presonally, I only fish when I think I might actually catch one 🙂
