Poachers.

Just a heads up to all, Inland Fisheries were called to a suspected illegal eel net in the waters around Belturbet on Wednesday, the nets was traced and the patrol officers were made aware of some strange pink ribbons decorating the shore of the SE canal between the Erne and Aghalane, on investigation there were 22 "Pike" nets set, the patrol lifted these nets but advised that this type of incident is not a one off but more likely a business, so if anyone comes across anything suspicious please report it to the Fisheries on 1890 34 74 24.

Oh Oh - I've being spotting lots of similar pink ribbons along the R. Shannon, between Banagher and Portumna for the past 2 years. I hadn't a clue what they meant. If they are marking nets, that stretch will have been cleaned out confused smiley

I'm e-mailing Shannon fisheries Board.

Not sure what they're poaching. To my mind the most valuable catch will be up on L. Erne this week, but as the Junta has been tardy with their preparations for World Domination, it looks as though we'll have to let them go unmolested.
I had advocated catch (indoctrinate)-and-return, anyway, so no-one was going to come to any harm.

I'm going to propose the motion that the Junta patiently wait for the forthcoming G20 summit. Then we can bag the Chinese as well.....

I had a post on here last year re. Pink ribbons, I can't find it now to copy but the ribbons stretched the length of the navigation and were part of a survey. When the surveyors " murphys" I think surveyed the river the ribbon marked the point .
Hope this helps.

Thanks Ralph - that makes sense.
