Kind of sad but if everyone fishing on the pier kept to the rules (casting) , cleaned up after themselves (a bucket a hose and a brush are all it takes) and treated all fish humanely(didn’t leave dead fish laying about) then the council wouldn’t have had to act. Be thankful they have not banned it entirely.

Please don’t think I’m having a go at anyone here especially you pier fishing fans as I know how important it is to have a readily accesable place to fish and I wholeheartedly support your protest, but be honest, during your time fishing there you’ve probably seen practices that horrify you too. Think of how these sorts of acts appear to the non fisho’s out there especially with all the bad publicity any form of blood sport seems to get these days.
