This is a message for Farm Watch recipients:

The Rural Crime Team would like to remind people concerning the importance of a rod licence and gaining the correct authority for the right to fish. 

This week we received a positive outcome for a male poaching on the River Wye in Derbyshire. This day of illegal fishing ‘landed’ the suspect with a £426 fine to repay.

Luckily we were better at ‘catching’ the offender than he was at paying his way!
