A recent change in the rules has been made to accommodate the use of soft plastics.
I think the wording of the change is a little ambiguous. It reads
Uncoloured bread dough.
Any scented lure constructed of, or treated with, elements that have chemical attractant properties.
later on it states:
LURE means any authorised artificial fly, spinner or bait.
So… My interpretation is that if you bought your cheesy garlic trout dough from a tackle store and molded it to look like a fish egg or bug and were fishing in bait permitted waters then yes. Legal.
Not really my cup o char, but whatever blows your hair back.
Any other interpretations?
