I'm all for no close season, I doubt if it makes any difference to fish stocks, welfare or anything else. I fish the Avon, always week days, rarely do I see more than two or three other anglers, sometimes It's just me, usually it is just me in the colder months. There are thousands of fish in the river, a tiny proportion are caught. Just guessing of course but I would think 75% of the river rarely if ever sees a rod, purely because of access. I think those that are so concerned for the fish should question whether they should fish at all, a size 6 hook yanked into your lip feels the same all year round ? For most fish anglers are a lunch ticket. My point is the small number of fish caught does not justify a close season. Just saying.

Re: BAA pools

Hi. I can only speak for Coppice, I used to fish it regularly as it's fairly local, mainly for carp, twice a week in the warmer months and now and then in the winter. In the colder months you could guarantee some silvers, that's why I went. However, a couple of years ago I went several times to fish for silvers and blanked, albeit it it was part iced over a couple of times.
My point is it's not what it used to be, have been a couple of times since and no joy. It seems pretty much it's all carp fishing there now, and I did plenty of that there, but has it gradually upset the balance as an all round fishery, i.e. if there isn't a boilie on the hook the fish don't want to know.
Rarely fish a pool now, the chuck and hook got boring but each to their own. far more interesting on the river.
