    Default Wading question

    Afternoon all

    I plan to have a go a trotting in the next couple of months and note a lot of online guides suggest wading into the river can help a lot as the line etc is straight. I know the river I will be fishing quite well (through work with the Environment Agency) and am comfortable with the safety aspects of wading, but one thing I am not sure of is permission to fish when wading.

    The stretch of river in question (Dorset Stour in Blandford), has a free section on one bank and a controlled section (Ringwood AS) on the other. Do I need permission to wade from the free bank here? Do I stay on the free 'half' of the river?

    Thanks in advance.
