Well done Andy it certainly is a step in the right direction. The number of folk that still take undersized fish is something else.
Thanks for the link.
Cheers

anything that helps show to the public that not all fishermen / ladys are rubbish leaveing louts is a good thing .but i bet we will still get the blame for it all,drinks cans,dog crap ,dirty nappies picnic rappers along with every thing else .i must admit though what makes me really mad is old discarded line that so called fisherpeople leave on the beach

I'm with you mate-I never quite understood the mentality of the fact that they can take it TO the venue,but dont seem to know how to take it home when they leave! It's not just a problem on the beaches either,a club water I belonged to in Norfolk banned day tickets after the amount of rubbish left by visiting anglers got out of hand and also ruled that season ticket holders would face a lifetime ban if caught littering.Needless to say the problem all but dissapeared very quickly after that.

notice on that list that bass are 41cm but if you look at defra size limits bass are at 36cm and that what the commercil boy go by, so take that the list is nfsa size limits? im all up for bass and cod size to go up to 41-45cm

Hi all,

I typed up a list of minimum fish sizes, laminated it, and glued it to the inside of the lid of my Shakespeare Beta tackle box.

I have a wooden cutting board that I keep inside my tackle box (for preparing bait and, hopefully for gutting fish if I ever catch one big enough!). I have marked one side in inches and the opposite side in centimeters with a Biro pen.

Now I have a readily available way of measuring fish and an easy to check reference table to ensure that if I ever catch a fish (whiting and weavers excepted), I can be sure that I am legal.

All I need to do now is catch a fish!

Cheers, Geoff :D :D :D
