As both Pally and Dodger have said, what the guy is doing is not illegal, it's not nice and I too would have intervened. Unfortunately the EA rules allow it and has has been said they don't have enough staff tp police the situation even if it weren't legal.

1.6.2 What freshwater (coarse) fish can I take?
On rivers, you may take no more than:
? one pike of less than 65 cm per day
? two grayling of between 30 and 38 cm per day
? a total of fifteen barbel, chub, common bream, common carp, crucian carp, dace, perch, pike, roach, rudd, silver bream, smelt or tench (including any hybrids of these species) of less than 20cm per day
All lengths are measured from the tip of the snout to the

That's because eel numbers have plummeted over the last 10 years and no one understands why.

Maybe on the day I referred to, the guy in question had collected too many fish? I have no idea what his misdemenour may have been, but we did see another official ( assume it was the EA ) arrive later and head off on foot down the moorings path to where this chap was. We were later told "job done" thanks to the report received from a member of the public.

I know it is not illegal to fish with only a rod, I wanted to comment on what we have seen and that to me this seems to indicate folk who don't care about the welfare of the fish and will catch it, pull it about to get it off and then shove it in some newspaper to take it home. These people usually don't have any gear or equipment should any other wildlife get caught in a line etc or if anything else goes wrong. And if they don't care, they are more likely than others to have no license either!

I wasn't sure about the barbless hooks aspect, so thanks chaps for the clarification.

As it is illegal to leave rods in the water unattended, and to fish from a moving boat, aswell of course to not fish at all during the closed season, there are, sadly, plenty of unlawful fishing practices that take place on the Broads.

My personal view is that the more matters that are reported, even if not actioned, there is a chance the authorities will realise that more cover is required ( and so clarification of what is and isn't legal is very helpful here) In my opinion this also applies to the BA who really do need to accept that the hours of cover for Rangers need to be extended, by some means.  Sadly more and more people In this country have less and less regard for rules and regulations, instead preferring the selfish attitude of doing whatever they want.  We're all doomed!  Gasp

That is with the exception of Sundays, when they all visit car boots trying to buy everything for 10p or below.
