Yoey, (sorry I do not know who you are ), I believe you will find in every post my messages are clearly in support of the NZACA and my suggestions have been to promote its public image and bank balance. In particular making anglers aware of its aims and existence, and suggesting ideas to promote membership. Nowhere have I 'bagged' Its work, in fact I would dearly love to see it's very existence far more widely known and membership compulsory as is the case with golf ... no membership then you cannot play in tournaments.
With regard to the secretary's jottings: this passage was use purely to illustrate the frustration at clubs failing to (a) attend or (b) even extend the common courtesy of tendering an apology for absents. There is no critique either made or implied by myself or the secretary of those who did indeed attend, having performed much secretarial work I fully understand the frustration.
In my posts I have already suggested the executive of the NZACA should align themselves with other fishing groups. I mentioned the Kite Fishing club, plus mentions of torpedos and kontikis, I have also mentioned the association's desire to be aligned with kayak anglers, unity is strength, or it can be if handled correctly. However, those who chose to fish with kontikis, kites, torpedos or long lines are hardly likely to be endeared with a group that continually complains at the current rules regarding hook numbers and accusations they are plundering the resource.
There have been some very positive ideas come out of this thread, let's hope some of them are put into practice or get mentioned at executive level.
