This week i have been watching the Seal family down at the Teesbarrage they are haveing a great time feeding on the Autumn Run of salmon and Sea-Trout. I have also been watching shags and cormerants and gulls feeding on young flatfish. Never seen any illeagal fishermen though, maybe they have found easier pickings where big brother is not watching them. I dont know how these poached fish get sold in this area when the public can buy wild sea-trout and salmon on marketday for less than the price of cod or haddock all year round. I shut a poacher up when i told him he was stealing my fish. I had to explain that i payed for an E/A to fish in England for migratory fish and i told him i pay anually to fish on the Wear and the Tees for migratory fish. Dont know if it sunk in what i told him but he soon fxxxed off talking to me . I honestly cant understand why they blatently do it down at the Barrage.Ialso dont understand why shoplifters steal when they know the cameras are watching.
