1st June 2020 should be the 1st day of our season........Our centenary season.
That will not be . We are devestated ....... Natural resources wales fisheries division will not issue us with a licence to fish unless we agree to throw out catch back into the estuary. That would seriously undermine the future of all we have built and the very future of the fishery ,a living fishery.
They have concluded that the average 5 salmon we catch in the estuary "cannot be said not to have an impact on stock " in a recent Habitats Regulation Assessment ( the 1st in 100 years of our history ) . We have asked NRW for further information in a f.o.i. request and also have started a petition against these further restrictions.
On a more positive note public support and that of our public leaders has been overwhelming !
