Forwarded by Nick Bowie regarding Ireland:

 

From Midnight, the 3rd March 2001, the Minister for the Marine and Natural Resources has made an order banning all angling activity until further notice. The order includes all forms of angling in freshwater and at sea. It also effects commercial eel fishing in freshwater.

 

The Minister hopes that it is a short term measure and if there is no outbreak of Foot and Mouth disease confirmed in the next few weeks, he will allow anglers back out on our waters to once again enjoy our wonderful fishing.

Best regards and tight lines in the near future in Ireland,

Paul Bourke

Angling Information Officer

Central Fisheries Board, Glasnevin, Dublin, Ireland
