    Default NRW Byelaw Changes Deferred to 2019

    It has been announced that the proposed method restrictions and compulsory C&R for salmon and some sea trout will not be introduced as intended this year and will be deferred to 2019.
    There is no more lovely country than Monmouthshire in early spring. Nowhere do the larks sing quite so passionately, as if somehow inspired by the Welsh themselves. There is a blackbird on every thorn and a cock chaffinch, a twink as they call him there, on every bush...... It moved me profoundly. I had been spared to see another spring, and I thank God for it.

    Hoorah, it didnt go down well in Cumbria.
    Lets just hope they realise most sensible Anglers are prepared to return fish anyway, its not that we wouldnt it was just we dont like to be told we have to.

    Men and fish are alike, they both get into trouble when they open their mouths.

    Good time to become a poacher in North Wales.
    Very worrying times ahead, pretty sure the 2 local clubs on the rivers I fish will not survive beyond the first year.

    Possibly at least partly behind this decision is the unrelenting hard work of a group representing anglers in Wales and NW England, supported by the Angling Trust, that pointed out to the Welsh Government that amongst other issues a) they had not followed the proper legal process for publishing their proposed new byelaws and b) contributions from clubs and fishery owners paid for an independent review of the statistical methodology used to set Conservation Limits and Management Objectives that demonstrated that they were badly flawed.

    This is not over, but it's a good first step to a more considered and acceptable approach to an undeniable problem with salmon stocks. Someone just has to persuade the NRW to properly engage with their stakeholders rather than ignore them and impose their own preconceived ideas.
