The fight for better bass management and a better deal for bass anglers is vitally important for all sea anglers. We’ve endured decades of mismanagement of fish stocks for the short term benefit of commercial fishermen, with no regard for anglers. New EU and UK policy should see improved management of sea fish and more recognition of the importance of recreational sea angling. The Angling Trust are just as passionate as me about all types of fishing (I also coarse and fly fish) and it’s essential to support their campaigns for better fishing. Please join the Angling Trust – it doesn’t cost much and it might just improve your fishing more than the next piece of shiny new tackle you buy!
