WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE? ANGLING TIMES READ­ERS HAVE THEIR SAY

Angling Times (UK) - - NEWS -

Ross Win­field: “Abol­ish the closed sea­son.”

Ge­off Moses: “Ban pri­vate own­er­ship of rivers and wa­ter­ways. All rivers should be ac­ces­si­ble to all an­glers not just the elite few who can af­ford it.”

Glynn Mc­carthy: “I think more in­for­ma­tion on fish­ing tac­tics, could be put into an ed­u­ca­tional pack­age aimed at schools and col­leges. Some­thing like this would pro­tect our fish­ing in years to come”

Tim Phillips: “More dis­abled or easy-ac­cess pegs on all waters. A proper coach­ing sys­tem that al­lows nor­mal clubs to en­cour­age young an­glers to go fish­ing with­out all the red tape. Too many rules makes it near-im­pos­si­ble to take young peo­ple fish­ing.”

Si­mon Earl Dean: “Catch more peo­ple with­out rod li­cences and ac­tu­ally pros­e­cute them. Peo­ple who steal fish should face a prison sen­tence and a huge fine.”

Owen Lerry: “I’m frus­trated that the En­vi­ron­ment Agency still al­lows water com­pa­nies to dump raw sewage, and that farm­ers’ agri­cul­tural run-off is al­lowed to con­tinue to pol­lute our rivers, streams and seas.”

Rob Lloyd: “Make ac­cess to locks/ mari­nas for lure an­glers. Also we need bet­ter con­trol of ot­ters and cor­morants.”

James Gam­mons: “Re­duc­ing carp venues and have a lot more mixed fish­ing venues.”

Paul Glynn: “Bring back the closed sea­son.”

Phillip Meek: “A set of stan­dard match rules across the whole coun­try. De­cent re­search into what ef­fects cer­tain types of baits have on fish­eries by com­pe­tent peo­ple.”
