The Dept have been looking at the Fisheries board structures for a few years now and it would appear that things are coming to a head. The Boards themselves have put proposals to the Minister which appear to be finding favor.
Currently Boards have a good number of anglers on each Fisheries Board. Needless to say anglers want a substantial presence on any new boards. To this end a meeting of representatives from almost all national angling organisations was held in Athlone today. All federations agreed that all categories of angling should be represented on each of the new boards and that angling representatives on the boards should be appointed by the Minister on the nomination of the Federations. At present anglers are elected through the angling Co Ops and this has been greatly abused.
All Federations are going back to their organisations to fine tune submissions. It is most important that we make our voices heard now before the Minister makes any decisions

Hi John,

I think that you would agree when I say that it is about time that the
present structure was changed. I know that a change in the way that the boards work has been on the cards for quite some time. When you say that at present the boards currently have a good number of anglers on each Fisheries Board you do obviously mean trout and salmon angling representatives as opposed to Pike and Coarse!! Was this particular meeting held at short notice? As I don't remember it being brought up at the last meeting. Anyway, It's good to know that we have a chance to redress the balance and seek to have equal representation within the new structure. As you say now is the time to make our voices heard.

Rory

There will be a follow up meeting of reps from the National Angling Organisations next friday. It appears that the Minister is keen to wrap the review process up at the end of march. Yes, march this year !!!!!
