Angling times are doing a vote on the Closed season. Check it out.

I am for getting rid of the closed season myself but would like angling clubs to be able to impose there own bans as and when, on there own waters when they know the fish are spawning. Tin Hat On.

Hi tin man
-Agree and also disagree a non fixed close season would be hard to police.
But also believe that ALL waters should close for a minimum of 4weeks wether for spawning periods or just to relieve pressures on heavily fished waters.

PS. Pass the hat!

The official reason the close season has not been dropped over many years is there is no research / evidence to support that abolishing the close season will not negatively effect the wildlife involved. How can you get data without a trial !!!!!!!

I suppose Dave that this debate on the closed season will go on and on forever. Its a shame that sometimes the river is in all its glory during the closed season and as soon as the closed season is over the rivers are sometimes on there knees. Over the years things have changed and sometimes we have to change with it i guess.

Anyone interested in the history look here.

I personally have always thought that the current law is nonsense , anyone can fish all through spawning seasons in still waters so what is the logic when applied to non still waters . I would imagine that Stillwater fishing must represent 90% of time spent on the bank without any apparent detriment to fish stocks. My vote is scrap it .
