Three-rod licence will be a hit with carp anglers
AS A keen carp angler, I have long advocated the need for a three-rod licence to cater for the thousands in the same boat as me.
For years I have had to buy two licences that cover four rods, and felt ripped off every time.
If I am being brutally honest, I never expected the Environment Agency to genuinely listen to anglers’ views about what they wanted from the rod licence, but I certainly have egg on my face as this latest licensing system benefits everybody.
All my angling friends – who range from matchmen to general pleasure fishermen – agree that the changes are great, and I’m yet to speak to anyone who has had a moan about them. Steven Booth, Braintree
