COULD 1LB BARBEL NET £2000 FINE?

Sundorne, Pimley waters on the Severn witnessed some excitement yesterday? Thanks to the angling dog walker, with an informative phone call of seven rods and two anglers, one on the spade, for worms. Thank you for the tip-off.

Result Bailiff attended with Police on the way. “Theft of fishing permission”, Fishing in closed season, seven rods two anglers and no, E/A / SAF permit. Stacking up for sure?

The matter quickly settled into a resolve. Photos and individuals details taken, tackle seized. Police Incident number created, with a report going to E/A for prospect prosecution, supported by Bailiff and Police Officer in witness. Seized tackle with luck will be awarded to “Get Hooked on Fishing”.
