    You should put it to the membership that the committee isn’t fit for purpose and all should be replaced, that is of course if you have willing volunteers.

    In both of the clubs that I belong to things such as this are bought up and voted for at the clubs AGM (or at an EGM if this wasn’t possible); then the decision is discussed in detail by the members and their committee and a decision is voted on by all.

    Isn’t this how these decisions should be made in a club environment?

    I'm on a club committee and act as a bailiff. However, no one on the committee gets a free ticket, nor do bailiffs. The only freebies given are to former committee members that served for many years.

    Thats a fair point Sam,but the section i was policing and 2 other sections are Burton on Trent town sections
    and there are a lot of strange sorts about,and what with knife carrying on the increase i think there should be an incentive to do the job, also there is the fuel costs to take into consideration.

    Personally I would tell the committee to get their boots on and start patrolling the banks.

    A £45 ticket is almost nothing, their attitude here sums up the value that they place on your efforts.

    Maybe a silly question but whats the right number of Baliffs ? ...there has to be a tipping point when the number of Baliffs becomes self defeating if they are all given a free ticket.

    That's dependant on if you want to stop poachers encroaching,which again affects the membership of said club,we all know there are lots of people prepared to poach,rather than pay...

    Who'd be a bailiff? I was asked,believe it or not, for a local PAAS water and initially said I was interested( Out of perceived public duty) and I didn't hear further . They must have changed their minds.

    I am a bailiff for one of my clubs. I get a free licence, if I paid for it the cost would be £49, I go out at least 2 to 3 times a week, doing between 15 or 20 miles each time, I do not get expenses, so in a short space of time due to the petrol I have put in the car I could have paid for my licence. We also have to ask for their EA card, it’s a club rule, and if we are fishing and members turn up on the water to fish,we are expected to check their cards as well.

    No chance, when I go I want a quiet days fishing if someone isn't a member then have they just get a free days fishing.
    All my club waters are locked so I assume everyone is a member.
