Jim's email was sent fairly late in the day so it may explain the automated response if they've all gone home for the evening.

If the OP feels strongly about it, which I think he does, he should take a picture of these people in the act and then send it off to the relevant authority. Sad state of affairs really.....

Fair enough but you would think the penalties might have been publicised when the categories were rolled out.

My local is Cat 3 and I have no idea what would happen if I killed one (assuming I could catch one!).

I would indeed. Sadly, one of my worst points (and there are plenty) is an almost pathological use of sarcasm to highlight things Bob, so for this you have my profound apologies!

One person in particular posted on Facebook about 4 pictures of salmon he had caught in a small stream near my home. The pictures were all taken in the same way with each fish lying beside his rod. In some of the pics the line had been reeled in so it was clear to me that the fish were dead. The quality of the pictures are in most cases of poor quality but clear enough to see that the fish are dead. The pictures can be seen if you visit "trout fishing in Shetland" on FB. I reported it to the local angling club but they only warned the guy that it was a criminal offence.

No need to apologise, one of my worst points is a thick skin and I never noticed the sarcasm!

The categories themselves are a bit of a nonsense in many areas. Also slightly surprising in 2017 is the number of anglers who walk away from the salmon fishing on club waters because they are Cat 3. I do like to take the odd fish now and then but I would never pack it in if I wasn't allowed to kill one, I just love it too much.

RESULT HOT OFF THE PRESS,

This today from Marine Scotland

''The Legislation Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries (Consolidation) (Scotland) Act 2003 (Part 1, Section 6 Fishing for salmon without right or permission) states that "Any person who without legal right, or without the written permission from a person having such right, fishes for or takes salmon in any waters, including any part of the sea within 1.5 kilometres of mean low water springs, shall be guilty of an offence and liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding level 3 (1,000) on the standard scale.''

Jim

PS I can't see where it mentions Cat 3 or how it would apply, but that's what they sent me.

Jim, I was sort of hoping for this:

"This morning I handed Marine Scotland a final note stating that, unless we heard from them by 12.30 that they were prepared at once to declare their position, a state of war would exist between us. I have to tell you now that no such undertaking has been received, and that consequently, this country is at war with Germany."

Glad you got the real answer you were after even if it wasn't quite as dramatic.
