Victim Services and £250 compensation to the angling club.
According to the Meadow Farm
Fishery website, David Champion
purchased Meadow Farm Fishery in
2015 and claims to produce in excess
of 500,000 fish per year “which are
sold primarily to the growing UK
restocking market”. The website continues: “Our aim is to supply quality
fish to our customers throughout the
PC Sharon Chruszcz said: “We
would like to thank the Goldsworth
Park Angling Club, who were the victims of poaching crime, the Angling
Trust, Woking Borough Council,
Thames Water and the Environment
Agency for their support in holding
the men to account for their actions.
It is almost impossible to put a monetary value on the damage poaching
does but to a smaller angling club it
can have a massive impact. They rely
on the finances raised from their
members to pay rents and to maintain, improve and protect fisheries.”

Regional Enforcement Manager for
the South East, said: “The result of
this investigation and subsequent
conviction shows the importance of
reporting criminal incidents to the
police so that the partnership of the
angling clubs, Environment Agency,
police and Angling Trust can work
together to secure a result.” n

The Norfolk Angling Fair and Indoor
Tackle Car Boot, Sunday 29th March
2020, Easton College, Norwich
On Sunday the 29th of March, Easton College, positioned just off the A47 in Norwich, will host “The Norfolk Angling Fair and Indoor Tackle Car Boot”. We want to
showcase all that is great in the area regarding angling. This is an opportunity for
angling enthusiasts from all angling disciplines (course, sea, match, predator and
game) to get together. It’s for local clubs and syndicates to promote their memberships for the forthcoming season, traders to display their products, bait companies
to convince people to stock up for the season ahead or for any organisation that
wants to promote the great work that you do angling wise in the area. There will
also be an indoor angling car boot for people to sell or exchange their unwanted
fishing tackle.
I would also love to hear from anybody who would be interested in putting on
any demonstrations or possibly willing to do a talk about their Norfolk angling
exploits. Stands/tables for the event are very sensibly priced at £10 for any voluntary association or indoor car boot store or £15 for traders, plus a donation to our
prize draw. The entry fee will be just £2 for adults with under 16s free of charge.
Entry fee includes a raffle ticket to enter a prize draw. We will give more details on
entry once we have established which traders and organisations will be there. The
deadline for traders and any clubs and organisations to book a place will be Sunday
19th of January. Refreshments will also be available. To book your stall contact n
wide range of tackle from sea coarse
and game angling to many outlets
around the country.

ANLRS, commented: “The team at
WSB have been very keen to support
what we are doing within angling,
and with their help, more tackle shops
and anglers will get involved. The
more bins available for anglers, the
more line we can prevent going to
landfill or being left in the environment where it can cause issues with
wildlife. As a volunteer lead, nonprofit group, the support of the tackle
industry is essential to help us
encourage all anglers to start recycling rather than binning their lines.
Let’s hope that WSB Tackle is one of
many to step forward and support the
scheme over the coming months.”
Along with their kind annual donation, WSB have purchased several
bins and will be offering them free of
charge to their shop customers.
These bins will carry the ANLRS
stickers along with ones from WSB.
They have agreed to be a collection
point for their local tackle shops to
drop off their line, and WSB will
arrange for it to be sent off for recycling.
Mario Massimino, General Manager of WSB Tackle, said: “We are
extremely proud to be corporate
sponsors of the Anglers National Line
