FISHING IN CARNARVON BAY â_ LEITTFiR FiROM THE HON. F. G. WTYNX The Evan. Frederick Wynn, Glynliifon, has addressed the 'following letter to the "Daily "\Iai,l "-In reference to your insertion in your. of October 19th, headed, "Wantedâto make a Stir," I am much obliged to you for putting in my letter which, two years -ago, I wrote to Captain. Robert Jones, an officer of the West- ern Sea Fisheries Committee. This letter I must confess had gone- quite out of my recollcc- tion, but I now well remember the eircum- stances under which it was written. This letter followed a personal discussion I then had with Captain Jones, who came to in- epect my fishing nets, in order to see whetner they complied with the bye-laws. I may say I have known Captain Jones for over 34 yeans, and always hold him in much esteem as an honest, conscientious man, he being a fishex- man, has put many new tails to my otter ir&wls, which are now illegal; and may not be -used. J discussed with. â¬a,ptain Jones the position where, according to the bye-laws, a small paddle yacht of 14 tons could go in Car- narvon Bay to have a trawl, and he said it must be outside the three mile limit, which means in this bay, I should have to go out ten or more mi'les, and this practically would be in the Irish Channel. II am reminded in my letter (which has now been made public, although it was only written for Captain Jones himself) that I expressed an intention of nshing in spite of the bye-law, and that I would let the inspector know when I would do so. This was to be with a large trawl net, and: not with the paltry little shrimp net which proved the subject- of the proceedings. Mr Casson sum- moned me for using a shrimp dredge four feet wide, from a ya'chts' steam launch, in the Menad. Straits, not a hundred yards from my house door, and his witnesses were two men, one of whom had been for several seasons on board my yaoht, who swore that from a dis- tance of thirty yards (it was over fifty yards) I they saw three fish caught, which were not thrown back into the rea-a somewhat difficult thing to do when the said' three fish were not caught. In conclusion, I may say that Mr Casson did not write to me for an explanation of the so-called offence, or of my two-year-old letter, which he made public, but at once took steps to summon* me. It may be his reason was, that as a 7egal fisherman, he found he had too good a fish in his net to let escape by reasonable explanation.âYours faithfully, reasonable eXplanation. -Yours faithfully, FRED. G. WYNN. I
