It is a family friendly online space to exchange information about fishing, boating and all subjects involved with fishing. The membership body consists of men, women and young folk and all are welcome. Fishraider caters to beginners and ranges through to the most experienced angler.

Fishraider is privately owned and operated, it is not a public forum as such. Members are invited to join the community and under some circumstances can be asked to leave. Fishraider is maintained by volunteers who give their time to help with administration of the forum ensuring it remains a resource to the general fishing community. Any money raised from advertising or merchandise sales is used to fund the site hosting costs and activities that benefit members directly. 


As a member of fishraider please be aware that you are responsible for what you post. Legal responsibilities regarding defamatory or libellous material apply to all members. All posts, IP addresses, times, dates are logged and archived. Administration is bound by law to make this information available to law enforcement agencies on request.

Fishraider has a post reporting function and moderation system, however Fishraider does not accept any responsibility for material posted on the site.

Any posts in breach of these rules will be removed or edited, any doubtful posts will be removed until such time as a decision is made as to whether they are in breach of site rules or not. If you feel a post has been removed or edited unfairly please contact the Administration. Anyone breaching these rules will be notified by private message in the first instance & banned from the site if they continue to do so.

Any behaviour that admin deems unacceptable may incur immediate banning and/or removal from the fishraider membership.

In all matters the decision is final & not open to negotiation.
