Fair play danny f..


Recommended Posts

The video wont work on my mobile , can somebody explain what uncle danny is doing please ?

 

 

He is starting a non profit charity, that is going to do 3 things...

 

1. Find disused lakes (probably around essex :lol:) and turn them into thriving fisheries.

2. Offer help to lakes to build otter fencing.

3. Try to give angling a voice within the government.

Well no one can knock him for that thats for sure .

Maybe , just maybe , the powers that be may listen to an organization fronted by a well known (for an angler) celebrity .

 

I paticurarly like the non-profit making bit and pleasantly surprised by it too :)

I really like Danny's honesty, and commitment to this great sport of ours, what a great bloke, and what a great idea he has come up with, good luck to you sir and I hope you achieve all you want.

 

in all fairness I don't think its just the otters we have to worry about there are a certain section of our communities that have come here to live and think its acceptable to take our course fish home to eat, Im not being racist or politically incorrect but it is a fact, these people need to be educated and taught that in this country we don't take our fish home, and we look after our wildlife and surroundings, we don't have to live off them and people who come here should do the same, I watched in amazement the other week as 2 young guys were knocking on doors in our street selling live Pike in a bucket to the Polish community in our area and were selling them with no problems, the people were buying them!! I told them in no uncertain terms that what they were doing was wrong, and guess what?? they couldn't understand a word of what I was saying!!!!!

 

So good luck to you Danny Fairbrass, I really hope your project takes off and is very successful

I see one of the biggest threats to carp fishing is people stuffing immature lakes full of fast growing carp, removing all the silver fish, digging pegs 2ft apart, feeding the fish on a certain bait they just happen to sell on site, and calling it a carp fishery.

 

I would like to think that point 1 won't be this threat!

Yeah, Im a fan of the whole Korda thing i have to be honest, I do believe its given anglers and people who want to learn to fish the encouragement and education to get involved. Its made fishing a more "open doors" sport rather then you need to know a fisherman and be deadly serious if you want to fish!

 

Its definatly opened up fishing more to a younger generation and the banter from their show is quite entertaining. They also have a show on ITV next year which is another massive step for the sport. So what if it sells thier tackle? its making the sport popular, putting people on the bank, which is increasing funds for clubs to properly maintain thier lakes (otter fencing etc).

 

Well done to them and may other fishing companies follow thier lead.

Do we really need MORE people on the banks? Many good syndicates have 5+ year waiting lists, and most popular day tickets are absolutely rammed at weekends, and many weekdays

. I

 

don't care how it makes me sound, but deep down inside, I would rather we didn't bring carp fishing to the masses.

I can see he trying to do the right thing but takeing tench and nuisence fish out of syndicatloes because some anglers dont want to catch them is so mis guided every lake syndicate or not should have a mixture of species not just carp.

Also some of the best fishing in its purest in todays comercial world is to be found on lakes that arnt used by the masses off the beaten track. I hope these arent the sort of waters the organiseation are going to commercialise. On the whole though got to be a positive.

Deffonately agree with grange though to me how popular carp fishing impaticular has become is not a good thing far to many instant carp anglers.
