They are fed by snow melt.What is done in Spain has no relevance to the issues on the Broads. Im happy enough to promote Extremadura as I know they only fish in SAFE conditions....and why we only promote them and not others. But why has this YET Again turned into this constant arguing re "Summer Piking" its just part of the issue. You say I'm "perpetuating a myth" and grasping at anything to discredit it it/my opinion/facts I'm giving? One simple question before I once again stop wasting my time on this forum....why when it costs my business many thousands of pounds in lost revenue each summer would I "perpetuate a myth"? I know why people constantly argue against it...and that's simply as its an inconvenient truth that they think will stop them doing something they want to do .... when all the "summer piking" campaign has ever been about is raising peoples awareness of a very real problem. But of course its easier to blame it on otter's and EE's.
However until legislation is brought in and as you mentioned earlier, Policing any such rules its all still just talk.
As I said there are issues we as anglers can act on though so maybe we should concentrate on these.
With all the talk of scrapping the present closed season though I'm worried that this will just add even more pressure to the all ready diminished stocks and as well as them getting hammered in the low DO conditions they will now be hammered all year. My experience of fisheries problems is also that by the time a problem is great enough to be recognised and the official bodies to accept....then its too late to do anything about it. Are we very near or maybe at this stage? I hope not. Only time will tell. Catch you all in another few years. Best of luck.

On another issue if we are taking a stance on Summer Piking or Piking conservation in general (which is a great thing) why are we allowed to target them when they are spawn bound?

Obvious that, it's beacause that is when the fish is at it's heaviest and the reason most Pike Fishing is done in the Winter months IMHO of course.

I suspect you're right Dave...always confuses me when Pike welfare gets discussed!

Shall we help him remove himself Steve & Maggie, or leave his membership open for the entertainment value ?

After all,  whether wearing my moderator hat or not,  this is someone who clearly just wants to post up insults and therefore deserves little respect from the membership or the admin team.
