was reading the local paper today (great yarmouth)
26lb pike found dead found dead outside the water .
apparently it was caught recently and its death is being put down to bad angling practices .
will hopefully get the artical scanned tommorrow and post details

While walking the dog around the lakes the other day I caught an angler with two pike in a landing net in the bushes . i made him return both fish straight away , i asked him why they were there to which he replied "we are fishing the river and didn’t want the pike bothering us" he also stated that he did it all the time !!???!! obviously i informed him of the rules regarding retaining fish and that i or any other bailiff would relieve him of his permit if we found him doing it again.
