    EA Close Season Consultation

    Correct Rhys, but the game fishing brings minimal income for the club, We sell a game fishing permit for Throop and have 6 members who buy it bringing in £215. Nobody is saying that tackle shops are specifically closing because of the close season but river anglers buying bait etc may help...

    EA Close Season Consultation

    Not just small tackle shops going, as somebody said fishing republic, Leslies and Bennets have gone, like river anglers paying for 12 month fishing and being allowed to fish for 9 months, clubs paying leases for 12 months and being allowed to fish for 9 months it is a total farce. It has made no...

    I don't agree with close season and don't fish stillwaters, have no problem with those that do. Know a lot of people who agree with close season and fish lakes.

    Poaching Poaching can essentially be defined as fishing, attempting to or having fished without permission of the owner or controller of fishing rights. Such permission is invariably gained via purchasing a day permit, club permit, or joining a syndicate, although there are certain waters...

    EA Close Season Consultation

    Was waiting for your reply Damian, assume you have been on holiday. This is an angling forum, the taking of drugs has nothing to do with the close season. At the time of my posting people were discussing the non argument that the close season allows the banks to grow back and the birds to breed...

    New Boots

    Muckboots for me, arctic sport for winter, edgewater for summer + edgewater short boot for those dew covered summer mornings when normal height boots are too warm.

    River Wye day ticket

    The stretch ends at the garden of the first riverside cottage, it is a long way downstream, a fair way below the garage/mobile home site. It is roughly a mile and a half of river.

    River Wye day ticket

    Rhys I agree with what Mike says, was like the armada last week but several times had a fish take as they went past. If you are in a swim where they can see you as they approach the vast majority of the canoeists move across the river to avoid you.

    River Wye day ticket

    Passed here yesterday and the shop/cafe is open as a garage, not sure if they are selling the day tickets. My friend and myself had 2 days fishing and caught 76 barbel to over 9lbs, great fishing.

    Double Standards

    The "single species group ambassador" commented that he cannot believe that the Wye and Usk are allowing people to coarse fish on their waters but have banned salmon fishing because of the water temperature making coarse fish second rate. On the Hampshire avon the salmon fishing stops if the...
