Anyone interested in joining me this Sunday at 12 noon at the Mull of Galloway to clean the bays rock marks up?

Hoping to get some bodies together to clear up the rock marks from the beach to the point of east tarbet bay.

Anyone interested then get in touch or meet me there at 12 noon.

Rubber gloves very advisable !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

yeah I know its a bit short notice. Had to wait to see if my work would give me time off this weekend first.

Report and pics of this will be going into the fishing page of The Sun to highlight this growing problem. Not only around the Mull but all over the country

I would think things like this would be better not being in the press as it gives all the antis an excuse to blame the anglers for all sorts

Good and valid point Kenny but the Sun should surely put the point across that the serious angler does not condone this littering and that we have already arranged similar clean ups up and down the coast.
It does highlight a problem that hopefully would get through to the leisure anglers and give them a little bit of education!!!!

it has already been mentioned in The Sun a few times. And unfortunately there is no-one else to blame for it but anglers.

Im a responsible angler like the vast majority but I always take my rubbish home. Lets face it its a lot lighter going back than it is when your taking it.

I dont expect everyone to agree with cleaning it up but thats there choice. If they want to go and sit in all the crap thats been left then fine they can do that.

I for one dont like to see a place I grew up at being left in the condition it is now.

exactly th point. There are a few marks that are endanger of farmers saying enoughs enough and blocking access across farmland to gain access. So a couple of hours to clear things up and a bit of 'positive' publicity showing that the vast majority of anglers are not louts out to destroy places and make mess. I will publish pics on here on Monday or Tuesday of the most popular marks before and after clean up. When u you see the mess you'll understand why its needed.

As secretary of Carrick Sea Anglers it is a MUST that our anglers clean the beach BEFORE AND AFTER any match and as our last shore match was only two - three weeks ago the area should hopefully still be clean, I would also like to add that the person (s) responsible for killing two smoothounds by leaving them on the beach to die at Trevally Bay have the disgust of all our members combined, shame on you !

Have you thought about organising this as a beach clean and fish similar to what Banglemouse does at Orford Ness on the East Coast forum? Set a date well in advance and publicise it on the NE forum and maybe NESA as well. I'd certainly be up for driving over from Durham with a couple of others in the car, setting up a tent, spending a few hours cleaning then the rest of the day / night fishing. I'm sure plenty of other lads from NE England who enjoy coming over and fishing this wonderful mark would be up for it as well, if it works it could become a regular social / fishing / clean-up event.

this topics been on the go for the last year and a bit. Unfortunately every time I get a chance to do it something crops up.

This was a rushed last minute affair without much preparation this time. I will try to organize this properly for another time giving as much notice as possible

Well done to tack4 for your efforts and much appreciated. It doesnt take much to clean up and its a shame that we have to do this after'fellow anglers'.
