Sunday 30th March 2008
A busier day in the shop resulting in more anglers on the bank. A youngster came in to inform me a large Pike had been caught by a Hungarian. I closed up for ten minutes to surpervise the safe return of a 8.10K specimen which I think is about 17lb 2oz in old money. At 5pm I embarked upon my first session of the campaign, albeit travelling very light with the bare minimum for stick float fishing. I had 14 Roach to 3oz and a Perch in 90 minutes just above the "gap". A small confrontation was avoided when one of the Hungarians caught a Hybrid well above the permissable size for retaining as bait.
Not more than four fish to a maximum of 25cm shall be retained or killed for bait use by any angler on any one day. The size should be measured from snout to tail. If you see anyone contravening this by-law, contact the Guardai immiediatly.
