I refer you to my original post then Jimmy, check the EA website for local byelaws, also check the relevant websites regarding fires on the bank.
You would have to admit it does sound fishy (pun intended) following on from the IYCF thread where you wrote:<blockquote class=quoteheader>JIMMY ( P A A S ) wrote (see

In direct response to:<blockquote class=quoteheader>Paul Howarth wrote (see
I agree there is no deterrent and I am staunchly in favour of there being more EA baliffs on the banks to catch the theives.
That still doesn't mean carp shouldn't go on sale. </blockquote>
I find it interesting that you feel the need to BBQ your catch (if any) especially when carp are available in the local supermarket. However as long as you are in possession of a valid licence and remain within the law it's your perogative.
Just two questions:
1) Do you regularly BBQ your catch?
2) Please provide me with a list of your local waters where I can catch fish for the pot. If you feel the need to deplenish stocks in my local waters it's only fair that you reciprocate and give other anglers the opportunity to reduce your local fish stocks.
