Hello Fellow Members

Lately i've been seeing posts on social media about some problems with people either night fishing or staying later than the permitted hour after dusk.

I know some BBA stretches alow night fishing via permits but as i understand these need purchasing days well in advance, if the club did a full season night fishing permit im sure it would be well received.

This in turn might help with this growing problem and in itself have the bonus of members keeping an eye on the club water, ie help slow or deter illegal fishing acts ?

This probably has been posted in the past, but just a wonder how fellow members feel and also the club ?

Re: Night Fishing Permits

I don't night fish but seems a reasonable idea to me.

Re: Night Fishing Permits

Hello gb123

Thanks for your reply, i know some landowners dont want night fishing and it would only be aloud on certain stretches, but even if BBA trialled a full night fishing permit for a season just to see how it went ?

I have also heard suggestions that have been made to just end all night fishing with no single night permits on any permitted stretches, i dont think thats the right direction to take and just takes the pleasure away from genuine BBA members. Illegal fishing will still carry on and infact it could make it even easier for them with no members around. It wont stop illegal fishing.

Re: Night Fishing Permits

one problem would be how long do you stay fishing in a peg ? max one night or 2 ?
at ladyham or ripple. we could park up for a week or even longer .
also the cost. what would be a far price ? i pay 100 for night permit to fish the Avon but that`s only one stretch.
maybe a few stretches could be night fish only. limit amount of permits.
no matches or day ticket members .
but what stretches would you pick ?

Re: Night Fishing Permits

Some good points made.

Would most river anglers stay any longer than one or two nights night fishing in the same peg? If they have a full season night permit they know they can return anytime, i've had enough after one full days fishing smiling

The rules and price etc would be for our club to decide and i guess locations are already the places where single night fishing permits can be used now.

Re: Night Fishing Permits

The problem with this time of the year , With the days getting shorter and the nights longer . Any one who works in the week will have problems with fishing after work , Due to the rule of one hour before sunrise and one hour after sunset .

One solution would be in the winter time extend the rule to say either 20:00 pm or 21:00 pm .
You could trial it for one season and see how it goes ?
