Apparantely it is OK to fish the rivers during the "closed" season.

It must be because I saw someone fishing the River Torne yesterday on Bawtry Road. And that is now the third person I have seen there since the closed season started.

Far be it from me to interfere with a potential nutcase and their chosen fishing venue, but do you think the EA will act if I report the next one?

It really is annoying to see this blatant ignorance / disregard of the law.

I dont think theyd bother Andy. My local stretch of the Witham is getting hammered at the minute even though a mate rang the EA and let them know. I saw 2 police officers walk past 2 guys spinning on the Witham yesterday and give them a wave. What a joke.

I think the only thing the closed season does is remove responsible anglers from the bank to make way for numptys who couldnt care less. The same "numptys" arent given any summons or fine as the police/EA know they are wasting their time as they dont generally pay fines or show up to court anyway. Its like a speeding ticket, those who are legal have to pay, those who arent dont bother.

Your opinion pretty much sums up mine Chumley.

I can't either the EA or the Police giving a monkeys.

As you say, it's the honest ones that suffer and the supposed benefits of the closed season are lost.

If no one reports them for fishing the rivers out of season how are they going to know about them ????

I say report them then theres a chance they could catch them in the act but if you do nothing they will get away with it !!
Report them i have when i saw two on the river Don last year and i will again if i see anyone on the rivers Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad
