First fish of the year.

Recommended Posts

Armed with maggots and a new spool of 2lb breaking strain line I set off today to catch some roach. I wanted to fish light. I did catch some roach eventually but this 2lb Chub was the first fish landed. It put up quite a fight on such light tackle.

pardon my ignorance, but isn't the course fishing season ended?

Yes you are right for rivers, some canals and some still waters. Other still waters may have no close season.

I used to love course fishing, even fished a good few matches in my time, but these days I prefer to shoot my dinner rather than catch it with a hook and line, You didn't say where you caught it JDOG , hope it was legal, as billiethegillie pointed out it is closed season on all flowing water and most of the canal network, I think only landlocked derelict canal sections are exempt, but dont quote me, most ponds and lakes are open though, 

Anyway nice fish J, tight lines :good:

Nice fish there.

The place we went for the stalking had a fishing pond in the middle and every night there were folks with their bivvys up and fished through the night.Vey busy place right enough.

Commercial fisheries can make up their own minds about closed season. Very few actually have one (for commercial reasons) but there is still a lot of debate about whether fishing during a closed season has much impact.
