    Farmers not buying fishing licences in protest against Fish & Game’s anti-dairying stance
    Farmers not buying fishing licences in protest against anti-dairying stance.
    Farmers’ fly rods could be gathering dust this summer as many refuse to buy trout fishing licences in protest against Fish & Game’s “political attack” on the dairy industry.

    On Monday, Southland Fish & Game ranger Cohen Stewart blamed bad weather for a decrease in licence sales in the region this season.

    However, farmers were quick to disagree online, many saying they had not bought a licence in protest against the organisation’s anti-dairying stance.

    Bernadette Hunt, who farms north of Gore, said a dismal start to summer in the south wasn’t a factor in her family’s decision not to buy a licence.
