Three-rod li­cence will be a hit with carp an­glers

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

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
