Poaching on the river Derwent

I’m happy to announce that two people spinning were arrested at Alansford by police officers. The did not have club licences and or rod licences. The police were alerted by a club member.
On another occasion a member contacted a club official about two unsavoury characters once more in the Alansford area. The Official challenged these poachers who refused to show any fishing or rod licences. When they were informed the police would be called they ran off with there tackle and got in their car and left.
They were left under no allusion the consequences of returning and once more I thank club members for contacting club officials when observing ileagle fishing.
