well i would guess that far more of us fish than have diesel boats , so i would argue this subject should be tolerated .

if a subject is getting constructive responses opinions and argument then it should be left alone . hell there has been enough subjects discussed on here where members have got really angry and insulting with each other without it getting moved . There are also others who just don't bother any more and thats a shame .

It will be. It's quite a big "if" though!

When it degenerates into general moaning about how hard done by we all are, or how much better the country could be run if only x y or z happened, then there are more appropriate places for the discussion. Simple.

This thread took just four posts to go from news that the proposed fishing tax has been dropped, to this:

We the british ask for everything we get , from the polltax to this . If every one just put 2 fingers up they could never inforce it . the only answer we have at present is to go live abroad .
We may have different definitions of "constructive responses opinions and argument" . . .

Has anyone here joined www.wtf.com yet? It's not the RIBnet naughty step, just a better place for this sort of thing.

John

Had a holiday in florida in October and had to buy a fishing licence, cost $33 for a weeks permit so not cheap. Boat facilities of course were superb, free slips, parking, showers, barbeque/picnic area, playground, etc. Surely it would be just the same over here .

All states in the USA charge a large amount for non-resident hunting and fishing licenses. For example the annual license fee for saltwater fishing in Florida, for a resident is only $17.00.

i bet you didn't have your own personal captain like i did on a rib trip to Scilly

So what did you catch then

so from what Limey says i undersand that fishing tax is just for tourists , a way of paying for all the facilities ? thats fair enough , something we need here i think .

Add up all the business rates charged to tourist business's in Cornwall and you'd be amazed at the total, I pay over 1000.

How much of your 1000 quid goes towards providing facilities that will promote tourism and thus your business?

Thats hard to answer, how far do you go, you could include road improvements for instance but I don't see any difference between our roads and the rest of the UK, lifeguard facilities come from the public purse but ad campaigns etc run by local tourist boards are funded by paid memberships.
