B17 go to F/B & search for 'Fishing on the Norfolk Broads. I have taken the liberty of lifting a copy of a relevant post:
"Ross Turner
I was fishing at the staithe at the time the boat in question arrived and moored. Although a couple of anglers had to move a few feet no one was really put out and more pertinently no arguments were made from either side. The anglers that were there were elderly, grandfather and grandson, father and son, me and my pal and a husband and wife. I cannot state firmly enough there was absolutely no animosity from any of the anglers on the bank, in fact quite the opposite, the father and son removed their keepnet so the boat could moor without a murmur. Although it must be said the boat owner could have moored in a space where no one would have been disturbed. I too have read all the comments on the forums thread and I have found a lot of the facts to be totally disingenuous.~

Greybeard, no more speculation, please. I thought we’d agreed that.

None of us, unless we are a witness, is in a position to say what is the truth of this matter.

Been hit by another boat? Report the incident to the Marine Accident Investigation Branch’s dedicated accident reporting line on 023 8023 2527 which is monitored 24 hours a day.  Help to make the Broads safer.

That is good to read.    Apart from the odd toss pot and you get them in all walks of life , Anglers are just not like this.  



Women dont nag they just

Karen, can your please ask members to stop referring to folk as “toss pots ‘ as I think this is offensive. Whilst not aiming at certain members , whether I agree with their descriptive opinion or not , I also think that referring to the BA as ‘ Broads No- Authority ‘ is also in poor taste . You seem very quick to respond to some members who dare to speak out of turn yet regularly turn a blind eye to others. It’s everyone’s forum , let’s not have double standards please

hedgehog, what is offensive about the word 'tosspot'? It simply means 'A drunkard; a toper; a tippler; one habitually given to strong drink.' Plenty of those on the Broads in the summer and in Norwich most weekends.

You may put your own connotation on the word, but Hylander is of an age where it would have been in common use, with its true meaning.

I rebranded the BA as the Broads No-Authority after their disasterous attempt to prevent us using the Broads at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. As far as I'm concerned, their subsequent behaviour, including planning fiascos, hasn't redeemed them yet.

'Broads No-Authority' as a descriptor certainly has more credence than 'Broads National Park'.

Been hit by another boat? Report the incident to the Marine Accident Investigation Branch’s dedicated accident reporting line on 023 8023 2527 which is monitored 24 hours a day.  Help to make the Broads safer.

Palatine, as I said earlier my post was not a pop at you but more a case of highlighting double standards. Irrespective of ones age we now need to be more careful in the use of certain words that were once acceptable. I’m certainly no snowflake but it seems some folk are pulled up on their use of words, others aren’t. I would like to think that you would be suitably unimpressed if someone were to call you a toss pot

Re the age of certain users of the term 'toss pot', ummm, since Shakespeare used the term in Twelve Night I respectively suggest that a certain contributor is skating on very thin ice!

@palladine,,, seriously??

you inference that it is me who is speculating is utter nonsense.

but to be clear,
you know damn well I was referring to the other forums and the comments and bad mouthing of fishermen with not a shred of evidence to suggest they were in any way responsible.

there have been in addition despite the lack of any evidence suggestions and ideas of damaging anglers tackle and claims of doing so in previous occasions by some.
most of these treads have been closed or removed as they serve no purpose but to antagonise both fishermen and boat owners.

ross turner was actually present at the staithe when the said boat arrived, he states there was no altercation between anyone present.


you appear to be just " poking the hornets nest"
what is it you hope to achieve?
  

my appearance is down to me, my attitude is down to you.
