    Default six rods?.

    I read in the angling press this week that a guy had been heavily fined for using six rods while carp fishing.
    For goodness sake , how many swims was he taking up on the water he was fishing?.

    I've corrected that for you.

    Me to keith, but six smacks of desperation, I would find it hard to give any credit for any fish landed.

    They all had six rods out when I stupidly hinted at Sherman The Gudgeon's location.

    Worry not though, Sherman outwitted them all with ease!

    Did he have 2 licences for 3 rods ?. Is there a maximum number of rods you can use at just one time. Did the complex fine him or the EA. Not much info on the post

    Its wrong, its stupid, its naff, its obsessional, its what a pratt would do but just to play devils advocate, if supposing he had two 3 rod licences and the owners of the water didn't object and supposing runs were few and far between, why would the judiciary want to be involved if no harm was done.

    Any thoughts anyone?

    Four is the maximum permitted, but further fishery rules usually limit it further. I've seen suggestions from some to suggest that it's illegal to use more than two rods on flowing water, but I've yet to see anything concrete to substantiate that.
