Shrewsbury Quarry Competition Season

In an attempt to promote the October 2016 competition season, SAF/SAMC embarked upon a drone video of the Quarry and County Ground.

This drone video created in the first two weeks of October contests and also none competitive days “weather permitting”. Purely gives a flavour/ example/pictorial of the efforts of the SAF/SAMC.

Hopefully, demonstrating and attempting a constant evolving effort. Offering over 90 fishing pegs, for any and all angling club to utilise, putting Shrewsbury back onto the national angling map.

Full certificates for flying, permissions and insurance, were in hand, and no animals harmed during the making of this film. Full Copyright is held and must not be shared or repeated without express permission.

Speakers on and relax for ten minutes, swing over to our Facebook and have a look!.

None E/A licence holder:

Additional penalties are being, introduced and imposed on the “none” Environment Agency licence holder by SAF, on SAF waters.

If found in possession of rod and line, “line in the water” and unable to prove and show your E/A licence this will create a problem.

Firstly, we have the standard SAF practice of the police being asked to attend, ascertain your details and process the alleged offence. Prosecution by the police or section 9 statements completed, forwarded to E/A Warrington Enforcement Office, for prosecution by the E/A, will follow.

Secondly, the above then raises the question of the Fisheries Act 2003 for “theft of fishing permission.” Distinctly, unrelated! Being unlicensed, you are unable to obtain an SAF day or annual permit thus committing a second offence.

This offence can be attended to in one of two ways. Circumstance dependant can be handled either by prosecution for “theft”, as per “theft of fishing of fishing permission” or by way of an £80 Fixed Penalty Fine, issued on the spot. This latter option however still going on record with the E/A, thus a repeat offender will eventually pay the full price.
