Hi my names Karl I am a new member 2018 and wonder what I should do if I come across a person or people poaching/ fishing on our waters.
I came across a man course fishing on the lords bridge section of the churnet on Saturday 14/07/2018 and I asked him if he had caught anything he said not
I then asked if he was a member of LADFFA he said not and he thought it was a free water
I informed him he was poaching on private water and that he would get into considerable trouble if the bailiff came along and suggested he left
I watched him pack up and return to his small white ford rental van and drive off
Question is should I take his registration plate details and am I doing the correct thing in approaching them and talking to them in a diplomatic way
