No need to spell it out

Angling Times (UK) - - SOUTH -

EV­ERY fish­ery has a list of rules, and at the places I fish the re­stric­tions are all sen­si­ble and in place to keep the fish stocks in top con­di­tion.

But one rule that ev­ery owner seems to have that sad­dens me is ‘no lit­ter’.

It goes with­out say­ing that ev­ery an­gler should take their lit­tle home with them, but I find it a bit up­set­ting that an­glers need in­struct­ing to do this.

I un­der­stand why fish­eries have this rule – not all an­glers can be trusted – but this should just be com­mon sense, and not a guide­line that is only fol­lowed be­cause it is writ­ten in black and white on a rules board. Si­mon Han­nah, Kid­der­min­ster
