Its a start & that's something, its only taken 30 years to get this far, but at least the ball is STARTING to roll (it aint rolling yet)!
Who is going to decide WHERE the spawning areas are? Who knows (would ANY angler care to raise his hand on this one), when the spawning season starts & ends? I've caught gravid bass in July!
The gill-netting needs to go out a bloody sight further than 1 mile!!!!!!! By the time they allow for GPS (global error) these b******s will have that back down to 200mts offshore if it suits them! Like Australia, & USA, (& Ireland did with the salmon) they need to be told to get the f**k off the sea!
I'm sorry but we always seem "to clap the crumbs that fall off the table" instead of demanding a place at that table!
When are we going to be one of the "lead bodies" in these discussions, instead of constantly reporting extremely minor concessions, as "major breakthroughs"!
Read between the lines will you! most of the conservation moves on bass catches, retention numbers, size limits, are going to be made by anglers, so whats NEW????????

When a lot more anglers stop moaning to one another and get involved in doing something!

An amazing amount of progress has been achieved of late by just a few under-resourced people.

(The big story in this week's Fishing News, the weekly voice of the UK Fishing Industry:

"We have nothing against angling and can only express admiration for the success it has achieved in lobbying the government over the past two or three years. It has bought angling from nowhere to a position where the government is apparently paying more heed to its voice than that of the commercial fishing industry")

Imagine what we could do if many more were to take their moans and complaints and start writing letters, demanding meetings with their MP, donate to the NFSA Conservation Fund etc., !!

Don't just leave it up to 'them', there's far too few of them.
