Hi. Just a question regarding the premium ticket waiting list.
I have been on this list for quite a while now and I also follow the press,fb and the POD site.
It has come to my notice having not seen several premium ticket holders on the lower ticket waters,
ie: having gone through the normal procedure?
Not that I have anything against them in particular, hey, they are anglers of note or tackle shop owners
or other. My question is this: does this have any effect on the natural progression of members that wait their turn on the
waiting list. In other words will they take preference over a member already waiting? Does anyone gaining a preferential ticket
take the place of one of the tickets that would be offered to a waiting member or is this separate to that list??
Thanks. Jeff.

Hello Jeff & and other concerned waiting list members :-

I can absolutely confirm there is only four ways anyone can fish on the Premium tickets waters without going on the waiting list - these are Shareholder Members ( the Owners of the Pride of Derby) of which there are 50 issued but only perhaps 5 go fishing on the Premium waters - Shareholders may take an occasional guest only after obtaining permission and getting a complimentary ticket from the Directors - this is very infrequent. Directors may take a guest - this again is very infrequent. Also the bailiffs may fish these waters - in total if one person per week fits this bill then that is it ?

I can assure you Ian Hole is very strict with the waiting list - he knows how important it is to maintain confidence in this system - if you can give in confidence any evidence that anyone is bypassing this system without our knowledge then please let me know the persons name and i will take care of it.

Alan I thank you for an informative reply, however, you did not answer my core question.
I do not have a problem with however the tickets are distributed, my question was directed to the waiting list.
Does any of the above," alternative" premium tickets have any bearing on the waiting list rota??
You mentioned Ian, I did not. I hold Ian in the highest regard, he is the one I would listen to above all.
He has a no B/S approach and will tell you straight how it is!
I would just like, as I am sure some other members would want, to know that it does not interfere with
Ian's running of the waiting list, that's all. Jeff

The Waiting list is the Waiting list - no changes are made to this in the form of additions no matter who you are or know - hope this is clear - the only thing that changes is when anglers cease to be standard ticket holders they are deleted from the list and when they are offered premium tickets and do not take up the offer - they also are deleted.

I was 53 on the list at last renewal, sent Ian my new mobile number just in case he had tried ringing me on my old company phone. Living in hope :-) can't wait to fish the premium waters.
