    Should be a £1,000.00 for first offence and have their tackle taken away, then double for second time, bang them up third time.

    It always suprises me to read posts on fishing Magic,predominantly a coarse fishing forum, in support of the rod licensing system. Especially posts that suggests that the penalty for not buying a license should be greater than the penalty for drink driving, or most probably, beating someone up in the street for no reason.

    Stop and consider for a moment, what have the E.A. done in your area to improve Coarse fishing? I've done just this, and I can't think of anything at all.

    How about you area?

    Value for money?

    Why do other water users not pay?

    Might be worth having a long think about this, before you apparently blindly support this particular piece of government legislation.

    Ric take a good look at our highway do you think road tax is worth it, I dont but we have to pay it at the end of the day. We need to purchase a rod licence to fish uk waters, 26 which is nothing at the end of the day. Sorry but I disagree Ric

    Ric, the law is riddled with unfairness.

    In a programme the other day they reported on stories:
    1. a man was fined over £1000 for parking in his front garden not having applied for kerb lowering permission
    2. A woman was fined £500 by her local council for putting her bin out a full day too early
    3. A man was fined £85 for killing someone in an traffic accident.
    No comparison and just shows how British Justice now works.

    Why then would we wish to fuel the insanity?
    Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split, as a general thing.

    The problem is simple.

    Fixed Penalty, this way everyone pays the same fine.

    Unless you make the fines very high and hard hitting, people will carry on doing it.

    Drink drivers should get &pound;2,000.00 and 2 year ban first time, double it for a second offence,and bang them up third time with a life driving ban. That's just for drink driving, if they cause harm to someone then the courts should be given full power to take action, but they are not given that power.

    The reason we have so much scum running around is down to Laws being soft, The EU and PC.

    Why should someone pay say &pound;80 for not having a Licence, and someone else paying &pound;150 for the same offence, what you earn doesn't come into it.

    If people want to fish, then buy a licence.
