I'd agree to moving the closed season maybe 2 or 3 weeks later, but would never agree to a 12 month 'open season' on rivers.

"floods compensation measures" My sentiments exactly. I think the commercial carp fisheries should be compensated for the loss of livestock at a minimum. I'm glad the Trust recognizes this need.

This sort of tosh will continue to be turned out until those that want year round fishing everywhere are able to achieve it.
I'm sure you've already seen it at club level where it gets proposed for this or that water and is initially turned down but after it comes back at several successive AGMs it eventually goes through.
As Gozzer says, there's certainly a reasonable case for some minor adjustments to the timing, but not a 365 days a year free-for-all.
