ALL aboard! The guys from Frome Men’s shed made an appearance at the Cheese Show earlier this month – showcasing their handmade, oar powered floatation device – the almighty coracle. It was made for a race which took place in July – after the Welsh Men’s Sheds Association threw down the gauntlet late last year.
Teifi netsmen releasing all salmon caught in 2017 season due to extremely low stocks
01 April 2017
The Teifi Coracle Netsmen's Association announced on 31st March that for the 2017 season they will be releasing all salmon caught, due to concerns about very low salmon stocks caused by pollution events and other factors
In a statement, the Association said:
Bearing in mind the recent pollution incidents on the river Teifi & the information provided by Natural Resources Wales regarding the current salmon stock levels, the Teifi Coracle Netsmen’s Association would like to announce that all Teifi coracle licence holders have taken a joint decision to voluntarily release all salmon caught during the 2017 season.
We recognise that we all have to do our bit to ensure the longevity of all methods of fishing on the river Teifi and urge that all other associations & individuals join us in doing their bit to ensure future generations have the opportunity to participate in fishing for years to come.
