It has sadly come to the attention of the LDAA that a group of young lads has been going around our local waters with spinning tackle with the sole intention of foul hooking big Bream and Carp.

This is not the behaviour that the LDAA condones nor expects of our members and we will not tolerate such sport. We have additionally received reports of big Bream with damage to their backs washing up dead from what appears to be a direct correlation with these activities.

While the LDAA doesn't seek to discourage angling, especially amongst juniors but all anglers in general, we will take action against anybody caught purposely foul hooking fish, which may include suspension or permanent expulsion from the LDAA.
