Again Brian i see where your coming from , but i think the consolidation Act is just that , consolidating all the Acts together, and again , they are exactly what they seem to say , ACTS .
However , i think this section here below i could use , along with the (maxim of law that states "rivers and ports are public , therefor the right of fishing is common to all"). (also in the law of nature).
The broad principles involved are:
No one has any right to trespass upon the lands of another for the purpose of fishing;
No one, even if he is lawfully on the bank of a river or loch under a right of access, has the right to fish in the river or loch;
Members of the public, having neither title nor right, cannot establish a right by any usage of fishing for however long a period, as against a proprietor having title to the land over which the stream flows.
These are principles of civil law and can be enforced only in civil proceedings.
Apart from in the Solway and where Protection Orders are in force, there is only one case where unauthorised fishing by a trespasser can be made the subject of criminal proceedings, and this is under the Theft Act 1607. The Act applies to an ordinary fish pond, or "stank", enclosed all round where the fish may no longer be said to be feeding in a state of nature. It applies to any artificial pond or reservoir which has been stocked by the owner and which has neither inlet nor outlet. Any person removing trout from a stank without authority from the owner or occupier of the land surrounding it is guilty of theft. It is open to question whether anyone taking fish from an ordinary river or stream which has been stocked is guilty of theft.
In the case of a loch acquired by a Water Authority, a previous owner may reserve rights of fishing but the fishing must not be done in such a way that it will interfere with the purity of the water.
Public waters are those which are both navigable and tidal. The tide must ebb and flow at the point where the right is claimed and the right extends up rivers as far as ordinary spring tides.
Unless anyone knows different , i dont think i have breached any contract under civil law and i have injured no-one or anything under common law.
Thankyou for all the input , totally appreciated.
