They only seem to be catering to those living on the verge of Saltwater.  Fair old drive for someone from Goondiwindi to attend a meeting.  Poor form by the organisers, ignoring the freshwater anglers completely.

Nothing at Ipswich, Toowoomba, Gundy, Roma, Charleville, Longreach, Kingaroy, Emerald, Charters Towers, Mt Isa etc.

Terrible form and reinforces that sweetwater fish & anglers are always the poorer cousin to the politicians & policy people... smacks of a pre-determined decision with some easy wham bam public meetings to tick the "public consultation" box.  :thumbdown  :X

Member for Nanango, Deb Frecklington, is on our side.  She's trying to have at least one meeting brought into her electorate which covers Somerset, Wivenhoe, Cressbrook and a bit of Bjelke Petersen.  I've also contacted Sean Choat (Ipswich West) and asked him to intervene.

Got this reply from Member for West Ipswich, Sean Choat.

Thanks for your frank feedback Dale.
 
The reality is that holding meetings needs to be more than something held at the source – as I believe many of those who have something to offer will be from further afield and these are the people with much vested interests and they also have much to contribute given that they are more likely to be supporting local economies when they travel for boating and fishing.
 
I will see what can be done to support ‘our people’ in this regard.
 
Thanks again,
 
Sean
