i have just got back from fishing off blyth pier and while i was there i was talking to an old feller and he mentioned that the pier might be getting closed i thought about and i had seen workers putting up gates near the barrier and i am wondering if this rumor is true and could any body shed some light on it thanks

Thank you for your recent enquiry regarding fishing areas at Blyth.

We currently allow fishing from the West Pier and also Blyth Quayside.

Due to problems on the West Pier we are keeping that area under
review as we are having problems with poor behaviour and may,in the future,
close it off to public access and introduce a angling permit scheme.A decision
on that will be made at a later date as we don't wish to spoil the enjoyment of
the many law abiding anglers.

Fishing is not permitted in the area you mention due to significant problems we
have experienced in the past.

i got this email from the harbor master a while back when i asked about fishing from the concrete jetty facing the river , so it could be that maybe there going to start a permit scheme.

So i dont think it will be closed of completely just regulated to keep the peeve heads off

All i can say is that if thay do bring a permit into force
then i will pay to fish there as it dose get good at the
right time's. But only if thay use the money
for the up-keep of it and put the damage right as i take
my son on there some times and he is only 4yrs and it make's
me think that he might have a accident and he may fall in
(yes i do watch him but you cant watch all the time)
as he love's fishing and coming with me on there.
Plus it might stop someone damaging the plack on there
for the late Billy Brown (mark X) as that will pi## #ff a
great number of people who made a donation for it (r.i.p Billy)
