UK tackle industry anxiously awaits decision on bass fishing measures
The UK tackle industry is waiting anxiously to learn what bass fishing measures will be in place following the outcome of the EU-UK partnership agreement.
For now, the UK Government has rolled over the 2020 measures into 2021, which means that recreational anglers will be required to release any bass caught in January and February and will be limited to two bass per day from March until November.
However, the regulations may be adjusted in the spring of 2021 to take into account any changes and adjustments after negotiations are completed with the EU. The Angling Trust, the representative organisation for anglers in England and Wales, will be publishing updates on its website as they become available over the course of 2021.
