The National Crucian Conservation Project (NCCP) is celebrating the creation of yet another bespoke crucian and tench water thanks to the vision and hard work of Wimborne and District Angling Club with help and funding from the Angling Trust and the Environment Agency.

A celebratory day, organised by film maker and long-standing club member Hugh Miles, marking the restoration of the Upper Pinnock Lake at Edmondsham took place last week with special guests including: ‘Crucian Guru’ Peter Rolfe, Club Vice-President and Passion for Angling star Chris Yates, and Angling Trust Campaigns Chief Martin Salter who was given the job of cutting the ribbon and catching the first fish for the cameras.

24.09.18  Bass Bag Limit Set To Be Confirmed

This Thursday (September 27th) the EU Council is expected to adopt a measure allowing the public to keep one recreationally-caught bass per day from October 1st for the remainder of 2018.

The Angling Trust and Save Our Sea Bass (SOSB) have been working tirelessly with the European Angers Alliance (EAA) over the last nine months campaigning for a bag limit for recreational catches to be reinstated after a ban was introduced in January following flawed scientific advice on the impact of recreational fishing.


05.09.18  Angling Trust calls for Bass Bag Limit to be restored

Later this month EU Fisheries Ministers will be considering a proposal from the European Commission which is expected to recommend the reinstatement of a bag limit for recreational catches of sea bass for the remainder of 2018.

This follows the publication in June of revised scientific advice from ICES which significantly reduced the estimated impact of recreational fishing on bass from 1,627 tonnes down to 212 tonnes, giving scope to reinstate a bag limit.
