Hi Rob

Under the new section 33A, you need to get permission to stock any water in scotland and if it is a SSSI then the application will go to be looked at by the likes of SNH via the FRS :roll: :?

The stupid thing about their extreme views in some cases is that some of the birds they get so exited about plus other animals like otters depend on the very fish they want to remove :? dohhh

If the fish were present before the wildlife & countryside act 198? "sorry cant remember the date :oops: :lol: " then it's a good case for them not to be touched as was the case with Duddy.

The Specialist Anglers Alliance were a great help to me with Duddy so it might be worth giving them a call or sending an email Rob and good luck :wink: :)

The anti angling brigade are getting in through the back door by making sure waters are bought up by the likes of the RSPB etc and being turned into reserves of various status where stocking or fishing is no longer allowed, in the end we will be left with nothing :x

Cheers
Saul

Hi,
This is just my opinion so please dont attack me for it.

I think Libo is the most difficult water the SCG have (that I have fished) and I like it like that.
At times I like difficult and at times I like less difficult.
Pit your angling skills against Libo and win or be defeated, but enjoy the challenge. One thing is for sure --- you will learn many things.
I have won and been completely defeated on Libo. I want to be defeated a lot more than I win.

If you want easier (but not easy) goto Lanark.
If you want difficult (but not impossible) goto Libo.

Libo is not about catching loads of carp or catching big fish but about catching one or 2 carp (in excellent surroundings) that you have worked extremely hard to catch. (sounds a bit like Fintry sometimes)

I don't mind if no more carp go in Libo but if they can thats fine too.

Libo is a highly underated water that we all pay for. Dont just fish it once and give up, go all the way until you cannot physically fish it or until you win by catching a carp.

Thanks from Denis. :D


Well said Denis :) :) :) :)

only my opinion but that is the biggest load of tripe i think ive heard for a long time you make libo sound like redmere for crist sake.

Its a lake we have only half of it we can fish you cant park your car safely and the last thing i want when i go fishing is having to write down no plates and storing the local police station no i go to chill out and if i catch i catch.

You pit your wits on any water against carp up in scotland, the place is a dump which the locals abuse and the SCG members pay for them to do that.

As for stocking it it seems that certain individuals go from water to water and if they dont catch they want the place stocked.

Like i said only my opinion

I think that awater the size of libo could easily support a fairly large population of carp maybe 200 or so as it is huge Im not saying that it should be stocked to that level but some more fish would be nice :D :D :D

Hi Adi,
Every time ive fished it i've took litter away and did not just dump it in the layby.

If there was any litter on the railway bank i cleaned it up, was not that difficult.
I did work to the second swim on the far bank by building up rocks on the front of it and took away all the litter I could find at the back 2 swims, much of it years old. I took away Couch cushions from round the back that took several attempts to get back round because they where soaked.
I took away a mess made by 'adults' :shock: one time that needed rubber gloves to be worn.
I cleaned the litter from the area at the far away burn.

I don't doubt for one minute others have done some other things too
I and others can see that this water has good potential.
There is a good crossing now and I remember the SWT doing work to the place to by clearing the path to the back end.

Has there been car crime at it lately?
I only know of one incident mentioned on the forums that happened a long time ago.

What have you done for Libo Adi?

Denis.

I dont simple

when i was fishing fintry the thoughts of all the anglers fishing the water at the time was it could be doing with some fresh stock to take some of the pressure off the big carp that were getting caught week in week out,and as for your statement just because you colin don't catch alot,how immature are you adi :oops: :?:I caught my target fish at fintry(bar one) before the stocking,hence why i moved onto a new challenge(libo),and now that i am doing a bit of time up there and getting to know the guy's that fish it,the thoughts are that it needs reviewed by the committee again,wether it gets stocked again or not is down to the swt and the snh(but there is no harm in asking),and as for you blowing yer own trumpet your at it all the time :oops: :oops: your attack on denis was totally out of order :? cheers colin :wink:

An update for you :wink:

I've been in touch with SWT & SNH, after a long talk with both it looks like we may get permission to stock BUT don't get too exited yet as numbers may be limited if we are allowed to stock.
I've sent in written requests but these will have to be approved by various people and not just the two that I spoke to we will just have to wait and see.
We also need to get permission from the FRS who are now looking after the applications to stock coarse fish in Scotland under section 33A of the new Salmon & Freshwater Fisheries Act 2007.
So things are looking up for Libo :)

Also please remember, access to Libo from the road side MUST be via the level crossing and no shortcuts across the railway line at any other place!

Cheers
Saul

Hi Saul,
Thank you for trying. :D
I hope we end up with success, but also understand if it can't be done too.

Denis. :D
