    Biosecirity planning to protect your property

    halfbacks were invented to stop prop forwards taking over the world.

    Sometimes courage doesnt roar, sometimes it's the little voice at the end of the day, that says " I'll try again tomorrow."

    Be careful of what you wish for.

    A number of property owners in NSW where my fishing club has previously fished for thirty plus years are now using the biosecurity provisions there to close off access to the river. All sounds reasonable, disease prevention etc, but has been used as a bit of a dodge in this particular case.

    Cheers,

    Yes, there will always be some one who will work the system for their own benefit. When that happens the club committee has to be prepared to go thru the process of appeal. The fact the club has been fishing there for 30 years or so without a problem, should be in your favour, whether the appeal process is worth the effort is another question. I can see many 4WD tracks closed using this biosecurity reason, all the more reason to do the right thing, I guess. What were you catching, yellowbelly? Haven't had a feed of them for ages.

    Hello again.

    I wonít name the river/creek, but It was originally flyfishing for trout. The club has a hut which it maintains on one property and still helps stock the river each year - although they pretty much havenít survived there since the previous big drought back in the early 80ís. Plus a local fishing club that came along later started lobbying to have it stocked with native fish - so, itís now more of a cod fishery.

    Going back to the access issue the problems really started a few years back when the property where the hut is sited was sold and the new owner thought he was buying a private fishing estate. That was finally resolved in the Clubís favour. About that time a couple of other properties sold to city folk who also thought they were getting their own river. The real killer was a wealthy lady bought four of the larger properties and then put the quarantine injunction on all of them. A couple of the others then followed suite.

    Negotiations are still on for limited access along the banks - all thatís really needed, but itís a slow process. To be honest, I think it will be a hollow victory and being pursued more for nostalgiaís sake by the time itís resolved.

    There is a second hut on another set of streams that still have good trout populations and most of the landholders there are pretty reasonable in terms of permitting access to the banks. But as these places change hands itís usually for city money and the risk of lost access seems to be very real.

    Cheers,

    Neil
