The Angling Trust has cautiously welcomed the announcement from the Environment Agency earlier this week that it will delay until 2019 the introduction of controversial new byelaws to regulate salmon angling in England.

New proposed byelaws would have required 100% mandatory catch-and-release by salmon anglers in 2018 on English rivers which have been classified as being predicted to be “At Risk” in 2021: Tees, Stour, Yealm, Plym, Ribble, Wyre, Lune, Crake, Calder and Derwent.
