FBAS Members note Winter Fishing rule change. The minimum size for Whiting was reduced by vote of members at the AGM from 33cm down to 32cm (2016 rule change) also for 2017/18 there is to be a bag limit of 20 whitings per angler per match.
Anglers are reminded that only “paid up” members may fish our league matches. Subs may be paid to Adrian or Frank.
It was decided at AGM that in future all anglers must weigh in their own fish. Fish left hanging on the door will not be weighed.
Members should pay match fees to Frank before booking in.
