||To act as a voice for all coarse
anglers and coarse/mixed angling clubs between the Tees and Tweed. The TAA will not be
an active angling club in itself but merely a body for the collective opinions/views of
its member clubs..
||To provide both information and
opinions to the Fisheries Department of the Environment Agency, who will in turn
furnish the TAA with information, and opportunities to give our viewpoints, after
consultation amongst member clubs regarding future policies, angling rules, & pollution
||To ensure this is successful, each
member club will provide at least one chosen delegate to represent their
club/association's views and report back faithfully on all relevant issues.
||To promote and open a dialogue and
exchange of views between all of the coarse angling fraternity situated between the
Tees and Tweed, and actively encourage comradeship etc between member clubs.
||To help, by means of introduction
etc, to promote such inter club events as match angling and junior participation with
a specific interest of furthering angling education.
||To help co-operate on such issues
as fish stocking and to create a dialogue between clubs when fish stocks are needing to
be purchased, in order to get a better deal for all.
||To help promote and encourage the
sport of coarse angling to such bodies as Local Councils and like Public Bodies such as
Northumbrian Water Authority etc, where the issue of coarse angling is not reaching
it's full potential.
||To stop any one club gaining
exclusive advantage of past "open" waters the TAA will on such occasions take out a
lease to fish directly with the owners, in order that all member clubs will enjoy such
fishing. Each club will be expected to help periodically with work parties and
bailiffing on such waters and no matches should be booked with6ut notice and agreement
of the other clubs in order that the date of the match is well known in advance.
||The TAA will also feed and inform member
clubs of any relevant press publication or announcement that may affect the quality of
local fishing. It will also spread the word of any open matches, junior teach-ins etc
that are not member only event and are open to all.
||An annual fee will be decided by the
member clubs at the Annual General Meeting yearly.
||11. The TAA will, on occasion, use any
funding it may have to promote fisheries by purchasing stock, or other events deemed to
be good causes, only after the full agreement by the member clubs.
