ok gents, one very confused chap here!
we all seem to know that you need a rod licence to fish fresh water- it's everywhere you look on the enviroment agency's website. the website also gives details of catch limits, seasons for game fish, a contact database for clubs around the UK, how to report 'illegal' fishing...local by laws, but after spendign 2 hours looking through the website for nearly an hour i cant find anything other than this : http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk...ing/31469.aspx which is about unattended rods.
I haven't been able to find out anything about minimum rod length (at which point does a rod become a hand line?) or about handling itself. I live on a small island so I fish with a hand line a lot from the marina in the summer, but have not long found out that the river Cefni is CRAWLING with non migratory brownies and would like a crack at them- just on a 1 day licence but i cant see anything helpful regarding hand lining through the meant to be 'come here to ask us because we enforce the law' envroment agencey's website , and don't want to wind up in the shdook
can some one help me out and point me out to where it says 'thou shalt not' ?
