Just wanted to know if anyone actually knows what poaching is??

I was walking a stretch of river i used to fish as a kid, came across a sign by a well known club, who seem to engulf a lot of waters.
" Poachers will be prosecuted" its also a public footpath running along the bank
My question is if i was fishing, and putting the fish back safely, (which i always do) then im not poaching

any ideas????? Twisted Evil

Poaching= lightly boiling in a few inches of water.

I would say that if you are not a member of the club and you are fishing in their waters then you are breaking civil law. It wont matter that you were putting them back alive or not.

Club waters, normally say on bank notice's, members only, I take it from your post, cos there's a public footpath you think you can fish the water?. If your a member then yes, but if your a non member, or no day ticket, then you run the risk of being prosecuted.. : Exclamation given that there's a footpath, doesn't mean you have the right to fish.

poaching is catching and taking something away, so if you put them back its not actually poaching, dont quote me in court though lol

Dosent say members only, but does say no day tickets.
Wasnt going to fish anyway, cause its not fair on the club members (if you ever find one)

Thats why i put it up, i thought poaching was taking, Lol

Dont want to pee them off, as i have put my name on their 3 year waiting list.

, Hopefully i have not offended anyone with this post cheers tight lines

Hmmm....debateable in court certainly but I suggest that if you are fishing at all, you risk killing a fish that does not belong to you and you can't return a dead fish. Again, debatable but that's the view I'd be taking if it were my water and that's case I'd make in court.
