We recently had a Survey up and one question on it was ” In general how do you think the fishing’s could be improved ”

90% of the comments were, to get more River Management work done .

Since then we have published  3 work party dates the latest only a couple of weeks ago,with only the River manager turning up for that one.

As it has been said here numerous times there is over eight miles of river to try and keep on top of and  with only a small amount on the RM team its a task and a half.

Every time we publish a work party our members are asked to support the guys and give them a hand with no response.

It dose look as if some people would rather complain than muck in and give the guys a hand.

Now is your chance.

A work party has been scheduled for Sunday 30th July 10 o’clock at the weir.

Once again we need your help.

MCAA committee.

Would all members please note ,If you are fishing at the Bridge Pool and have a walk up to see the fish going up the fish pass could you please dismantle you rod or at least take your fly or lure off and wind in your line or even better leave your rod at the Bridge as this will make things a lot easier for the bailiffs .

Thanks

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

We would like to inform all our members that All MCAA bailiffs carry an identification card with their picture on it which they should show you when on their patrols.If you are approached by someone claiming to be a bailiff and dose not show you his card please get ( if you can ) his name and send the association an email stating his name and or description and where you were approached.

Scottish Minister Appointed Bailiffs will show you his warrant card.

Thanks.

The on line application form questionnaire has now  been taken down,it was disappointing that we only had nineteen members responding and submitting the questionnaire back to the association,we will now have a look to see if this is going to be worth while going ahead with it or not.

Thanks to the members who responded.
