Well, on a personal level, as long as that remains I will respect it but when – because surely it will be at some point in the future – it is lifted, I will fish all year round.
There’s so much you can say about the close season but this is a blog entry not a book.
I haven’t been on an angling forum for some years but this was always the time of the year when people got involved in heated arguments.
Actually, many did this twelve months of the year anyway so nothing changed there, it was just a different subject to argue about.
What are your thoughts on the close season? Would you fish rivers if it was lifted?
