Keith,

Must agree with you. Boatboys guide to fishing is certainly refreshing...

Great one Boatboy, I like it. Smile

On a serious note though, I must say that I agree wholehartedly with what Budgie Man says.  I'm also a keen pike angler, and for anyone that is thinking of giving pike fishing a go, the link he provides gives some very useful tips.

It's just sad to know that whilst there are many inexperienced anglers out there that genuinely want to learn how to deal with fish properly, there are equally as many that just don't care at all.  

I have very vivid memories of catching a small Jack pike at the age of about 10 and having two blokes yelling at me from the other bank telling me to "Knock it on the head!", "Kill it!", and "don't put it back in there!".  Luckilly my dad was just at the car and was straight over to help.  I wonder what would have happened if they had caught it though?

good thread, mr budgie man  Smile

nowadays,there is no excuse for not researching pike fishing before going. there are numerous books & videos on the subject, & the PAC should always be willing to help.

the best way tho, is to fish with someone who is experienced.

hi bosun mate
welcome to the site,best way is to come fishing with me, never catch any thing but seem to fall asleep a lot, put that down to relaxation or the stella.
but you are right ,for first timers it is best to have help on hand so the fish do not get damaged.
i do worry that fishing may follow the hunting path,and after watching some anglers on the broads a bit more care may be prudent.plus the attitude some of them have to the rest of the river users?
i have often thought that a fee should be payable for fishing then a bit more accountability may be started.
cos its allways the few that spoil it for the rest of us.
Cheers

now about my bilges.

Might not be much of a fee but we have to pay for our rod licences.
Unless of course you are proposing "feeing up" every part of the river...that would be about as welcome as telling boaters they have to pay the toll plus a milage charge for every inch they travel.
Most of the beer cans I see floating in the broads are "overboards" from boats, much of the rubbish I see floating is "overboard" from boats....if accountablity should be there for anglers then it should be there for boaters too.

hi marc mate no sweat
just a thought around most of norfolk you have to pay to fish i do as well.
my boat license is a lot more than my fishing one.
not many places in the u k where you can fish free.
plus i have to have insurance to be on the broads .
one of my most spot on haunts in norfolk costs me £10 a day to fish  so why not charge a little for the broads. Smile
cos i do note a lot of anglers hog the moorings and will not give way to craft. Question

With regards anglers hogging mooring spaces, I agree but like at least one other person on here my view is I'll ask you to move your rod twice and then I am coming into that gap - Anglers must give way to boats at free moorings if they chose not to then it is their equipment at risk.

Who would fund the cost of bank patrols to enforce payment of bank fishing? Who would fund the cost of putting EA personnel in boats to collect fee's up and down the river?

If someone has to pay £10.00 to "moor" their bum to fish on part of a bank (say St benets) would you then be happy to pay £10 to moor your boat there?

I agree though that anglers should pay more heed to "rights of way" but feel that introducing charging is not the best method of creating an enviroment of accountability - as you point out we pay more for for our insurance and tolls than an angler pays for his rod licence but on the whole they create less mess than the boaters, so in this instance increased costs do not equal accountability.

Don't often disagree with you Roy, but going to here. Not in respect of the accountability for anglers, I think that's a very good idea but I don't think that making the sport more expensive will improve that.

I don't see the point in making any activity more expensive if it can be avoided, be it angling or fishing. Most people I know who fish regularly learnt to do so as kids, when their respect for the fish they were catching was at it's height and they carry that with them in their sport today. Making the sport more expensive would only put kids off fishing and drive them back to their playstations.

Yes, there are one or two fishermen around whose attitude stinks, but then that goes for one or two boat owners as well. Perhaps peer pressure is the way to correct these people ways!

thanks roya  Smile

tis a very interesting site & given my love of the broads, why has it taken so long for me to find it?

boats & anglers should respect each other & i think, in general they do.

the fishing should stay free imho. the cost of a holiday in this country is expensive, especially the boats. even in oct/nov, a boat for me, the missus & the hairy monster in my pic,is £500+ & if i then had to pay to fish i would struggle to afford it.

holiday fishing must generate a huge revenue to the area, aswell as introducing a few newbies to the sport.both of which are welcome....

as long as those as those newbs don't go straight for the poor pike!  Playful Wink
