You may remember a few months ago Inland Fisheries Ireland asked for submissions to help them develop a 5 year plan. One of the suggestions we made was that they needed a permantly manned phone line where anglers could report incidents of poaching, pollution etc.
http://forum.angling-in-ireland.com/viewtopic.php?t=8206
I.F.P.A.C. were told today that I.F.I. are launching this service on 1st December. They have assured us that the line will be manned by I.F.I. staff 24/7. Staff manning the phone will have up to date information on all their staff on duty that day so that the nearest can be directed to the incident. We discussed with them the possibility of getting laminated cards with the number issued to anglers. This is being looked at.
The number will be 1890347424 they pointed out that anglers may remember the number better as 1890FISH24
Once you give them a report they will phone you back later to give you details of their findings
This is all very positive news.
Now you do something positive !!! PUT THE NUMBER IN YOUR PHONE NOW !!!

This is a great idea indeed and I have stored that number, well done to all involved!

One small note however, that number is NOT a freephone number if it is 1890 and may cost up to 35 cent per minute, be aware of this please.

See the details about 1890 numbers here:

I apologise if I seem a bit short with cavanfishing. However, if it costs up to 35c a minute to reprort the rape of our waters.....it's simply worth it!

Apology accepted. Very Happy

I totally agree with you that it is worth the money spent on a call given the circumstances, but all I was doing was letting lads know that it wasnt free as had been suggested in the beginning, its easy to call a free number from your mobile but when it costs you it makes it awkward to ensure you have enough credit while you're out fishing to report a case of poaching, thats all. I wasnt being smart about it and suggesting that I wouldnt call because it was going to cost me. As I stated, its a brilliant idea and lets all hope poaching conviction rates rise significantly now!

Ah look I probably shouldnt have said anything about the cost, I was just trying to be helpful, nothing more. As I say it will be of great benefit to us out on the bank to combat this scourge.

Dont forget that IFI have said that if the reporting angler leaves his name and contact number IFI will keep him informed on their findings. This would involve a cost too so all in all I dont think that anglers will mind

IFI have been on to say that many anglers are ringing the number asking about permits, wheres fishing well, etc. The have asked us to remind anglers that that number is ONLY for reporting poaching, pollution etc.
