Poaching fish

Loughborough Advertiser - March 3rd 1881

William Dunn and William Holt were charged with taking fish at Quorndon on the 23rd ult. Mr Clifford appeared for the defence. The river keeper to the Quorndon, Mountsorrel, Barrow and Sileby Angling Society , stated that about 3 o'clock on the afternoon in the day in question he was at work on the towing path, Dunn was in the meadow which belongs to Mrs Perry Herrick, he had a trammel in the water, and with a pole about 6 yards in lenghth drove the fish into the net, on seeing him, Holt drew the net across. Witness went to them and demanded the fish, but they disputed his right thereto and a struggle ensued, when he and Holt fell down together. He however took the fish and the net. Mr Clifford having submitted that the case could not be sustained owing to informality, the Bench coincided, and the accused were discharged
