Tony Simpson started this petition to Environment agency

this is a call to all anglers of what ever persuasion to demand that the government rescind the rod licensing fees that we the English and Welsh must pay in order to fish our rivers and lakes, reservoirs ECT. in order to enjoy our pastime, it is immoral and outdated, if Scotland a country of exceptional talent can provide a free to fish strategy as to encourage people to enjoy the outdoor life without imposing unnecessary burdens on their finances, then why do we the English and the Welsh have to endure a draconian and clearly outdated system of feudal inequality, the money we supply to this outdated system is a mere drop in the financial bucket and is hardly used to support our chosen pastime, I am therefore asking every angler regardless of your chosen method, or species to give your whole hearted support to this campaign as it might be the last chance for us to protect what is fast  becoming a lost pleasure and art form, I therefore implore that you look into your soul and mind and ask yourself this question, are we being treated as animal fodder, and is it right to just stand by and do nothing, more people go fishing in all it forms than watch football, rugby, and all other sports, we need to have a united voice that will be heard.

so I implore you to spend a few moments of your time to make our voices heard.

Regards, Tony Simpson
