Wait a minute... it's illegal to fish unless it's strictly catch-and-release in the UK now? Add that to the huge pile of ridiculous laws. Do you
need a fishing liscence over there? Here you have to buy a liscence every year around $20, and there is a big booklet each year with the limits of how
many fish you can catch per day in what specific areas of each river and lake in the province, and what methods you can use to catch them during each
time of year. As far as I know, you can fish for carp pretty much any time here, although spearfishing and bowfishing is pretty limited.
Still, imagining some guy running off with a 30 pound carp flapping under his arms is pretty hilarious.
Those signs are pretty weird... you're right, it doesn't say that it's actually illegal or that there is any kind of fine. It says "WARNING"....
warning against what, what harm does cooking fish pose?
Anyway here is
the link given on the images, it might answer some of your questions.
Jeez these guys look strict, they take german shepards on patrol to check for liscences?
