Piscator non solum piscatur

Written by Jillywrites. Posted in General Fishing

As the wonderful fellows in the syndicate will attest, the riverbank venue, even one chosen for its peace and solitude, can be surprisingly busy and noisy.

It's one o'clock and we're taking a break from fishing. The water is low and sluggish and has warmed and there's not much doing, so now is as good a time as any to lie back, catch a few rays of sunshine and relax a little.

Fishermen Angry At Rejection of Application for Bye-law

Written by FishKeep. Posted in Angling News

Fish Legal is considering legal action against Perth and Kinross Council after its Community Safety Committee rejected a proposal to introduce a bye-law restricting commercial rafting on the Upper Tay.

Fish Legal made the application on behalf the Tay District Salmon Fishery Board which has a legal duty to protect and enhance salmon fisheries on the River Tay. The Upper Tay has been swamped by rafters since the introduction of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act in 2003, making fishing virtually impossible. Fishermen, beleaguered by an incessant tide of rafts, no longer fish the waters. Catches have collapsed and as a result the capital and rental values of the fisheries have plummeted.

Sewage Kills Thousands of Fish

Written by Dan. Posted in Angling News

Thousands of fish have been killed in a pollution incident on the tidal Thames in West London after nearly half a million tonnes of sewage poured into the river over the weekend. Anglers were out on Monday evening trying to rescue dying fish stranded on the river’s beaches. The fish included roach, dace, bream, eels, perch, pike, sea bass and flounder. The tidal Thames is an important coarse fishery as well as being a vital nursery area for marine fish species for the whole of the South East of England.

Protecting your catch

Written by Clint. Posted in General Fishing

Fish care; does it matter?

One of the most important things in angling is fish welfare; fact. The protection, conservation and continuation of our target species is paramount to our fishing, without conserving and husbanding of stocks, our sport will decline and we will all suffer the consequences......but do we take it seriously enough?
