salarBoilies - light enough to mail? Well, maybe. But only if you want a small taste. If you plan on using some for ground bait and the like, you are then getting into needing kilos and kilos of the things. Woooo. Not cheap at that point. At least your cast net doesn't get eaten so you have to buy another.
Cranfield - I normally try to stay away from making value judgements about things UK but I gotta make a comment here. If the commercial folks over there are allowed to fish a species to destruction and a pleasure angler can't use a small cast net for getting bait, something is badly out of whack.
