Sharing the goods are the thought in the EU..............danish trawlers are sweeping in sandeel to feed their pigs, french and spanish purse seiners take the bass and everything else in their way. With the massive following sport fishing has in the UK, it amazes me to see that conservation in the UK still means saving the commercial fishing! Read Mel Russ comment in the latest Sea Angler, and it seems rod license is just another way to bring cash to the Exchequer with nothing more gained.

Iceland done it way back when, and their waters are still thick with fish today.

It is truly sad to be taking direction on such an important part of Our environment and cultural heritage from Brussels or some place other than at home.

Now their answer to dealing with their own mess is to slap a license fee on recreational anglers... it would have to be about 1000 GBP a year per rod to pay for the enforcement and admin alone... then they would fix fish stocks how exactly? buy them from other countries and set them loose in the north sea? lol. its madness.

It is obvious its just a swindle... The national rod licence pays for the inland waterways to be managed and stocked and pays for enforcement officers on those waters. Coarse fishermen dont mind paying cos it benefits their sport greatly.

A sea licence on the other hand... are they gonna put more fish in the sea? enforcement officers 2 at a time covering the entire coast? what exactly does a recreational angler have to gain from paying this proposed licence?
