Here on The Deveron we do not have a per fish allocation. It like many other rivers is based on a rateable value arrived at by the Local Council which obviosly is based on the size of the beat, income from this and a catch element.
The District fishery Boards are , not for profit organisations. However under legislation they have certain duties and obligations- which need to be paid for. In order to raise these funds they have a levy or rates income from all the proprioters on the River. How each board does this is up to them but I would believe that they all use the same basic method. They prepare a budget for the year approve it and then allocate the way to fund it. In our case by a pence in the pound charge on the rateable value of the river. Obviously the higher the rateable value the more money each owner will pay.
Each Board will have its own requirements and budgets will be varied. Like any other organisation - it is at the AGM where proprietors can challenge the budget and if not happy with the way things are - stand for election at the tri annual election to the board. I suspect when push comes to shove , volounteers to be appointed to the board are always hard to come by.
Looking at the Tweed Income and expenditure sheet for 2006 and 2007- it is a vast organisation and obviously needs a large fund to carry on its work. There are always gripes when people have to pay up for anything. However , are there some specific items under challenge or just the cost per fish ? which obviously brings the whole budget into focus.
Hello Frank, As you can see on the post re Association Prices there has been a veiled attack on me and salmon king because we are successfull anglers. The guy has the advantage as obviously he knows who we are but we do not know who he is. My post was mainly aimed at club members in the hope of discovering if paying a river levy in whatever guise was a problem in their organisation. Thanking you for your reply.
O give me Grace to catch a fish, so big that even I, when telling of it afterwards shall never need to lie.
