Natural baits are allowed everywhere, catch and release is forbidden and last but not least the "take home quote" is six brown trout a day... Only 13 of our natural 55 species are not in danger and that's only because those are the fish people don't like in their kitchen - such as bream, chub and carp. But there is also a change coming, a lot of people are doing a great job protecting and cleaning our water. Like a group of divers, they bring up rubbish from the lake ground every weekend
I do a great job to protect our wedding couple and spook the heron every day. It's a little bit like going to a cinema to watch these 2 fish and I'm looking forward to see the small ones, somewhen.
By the way, if you ever thinking about feeding a heron by hand don't do it! I know what I'm talking about... It's already been a few years since we went on our boat for New Year's Eve. The next morning we had a guest on the boat. A nice bream for him was caught quite quickly and then he was faster than I thought
