:QUOTE:/ MATSALLEH:

 

Superdike,

You seem to have a problem with everything I post,where have I ever a said a rod licence was extortion? The bit about objecting to paying was about having to pay for public parks as was well documented in the wiremill dam thread.

If that's what turns you on,feel free to carry on. :QUOTE:

 

OOOOH WHAT TANGLED WEBS WE WEAVE; Eh Mattsalleh?

Why you felt the need to P.M. me your infantile rant (as above), I don't really know. Anyway, I thought I'd copy it here so that my reply is understood by all.

 

And don't flatter yourself by implying that I've got some kind of special, albeit negative, relationship with you.

I debate points on S.F. And as many folk here know, I hold no grudges.

Just because I might agree with your point this week doesn't mean that I'll agree with your point next week. And vice versa.

'Extortion' may not have been the exact word you used but you were saying that 'because we pay council tax it's a liberty that they should expect us to pay for fishing licences' AS WELL.

 

You accused me of 'jumping in' - I see, - anything you don't like the sound of, or disagree with, is 'jumping in' is it?

It was you who started with the insults when I was merely making some valid and pertinent points that any newcomer to angling should be made aware of.

 

One such point being, - that all anglers should be aware that other people are perfectly entitled to walk around ponds and to let their children/dogs play there also. You made it very clear that you think otherwise, as sadly many, but by no means all, anglers think.

 

P.S. I am a man so that calling me a 'dyke' is a little bit silly - do try to use your imagination if you feel the need to insult me - I'm sure you can do better.

My boyfriend would like to fish at crookes Park Sheffield and was wondering if you could tell me if it is possible and how much it will cost for this? Thank you. Lily

Crookes Valley is free fishing. However, during this hot weather a lot of people are using it as a swimming pool so fishing might be a bit awkward.

Another issue is parking. The car park next to the lake is owned by the university and street parking is minimal.

Thank you Charlie, most helpful. We wondered why there was no parking spaces anywhere on our visit last week when it was sooooo warm and park full of young people on inflatable boats and others enjoying a dip to cool down. Is there a place for coffee anywhere or do we need to go to the nice looking pub called the dam Inn?
