why does a commercial fishery ban the use of bread ...our local pond spring view disabled anglers has just done this, but they give no justified reason .I understand the need to ban floating bread but as a sinking hookbait its my favorite.The only reason i can find for the ban is that it works.

i think you've hit the nail on the head it works,i can remember a few years ago fishing at a smallish pond and everything was banned all you could use was maggots, which wasn't easy on a small pond that was over fished

Its probably banned so as to prevent any one from claiming its sinking when in fact its floating. I by choice refuse to fish commercial fisheries, thats my choice and I would never stop anyone wishing to fish them doing so. How ever it seems as bans are so prevelent at these places that we as anglers are to blame by accepting them. We should vote with our feet at these places. Things would soon change if attendances fell.

chill out go fishing

We fish a lot of lakes each year in our club matches and most of them have banned floating bread because of a few idiots that throw in half a loaf of sliced bread after fishing and spoil it for anyone else that are fishing, but they still allow bread as hookbait so I can't moan too much. Their reason for the ban is that it attracts rats.

Another daft rule is they allow liquidised bread in a feeder but don't allow groundbait in a feeder, it's crazy!

it's the same at one of the ponds i fish, it says on the sign no ground bait but the bailif said to me the other week to"bunge some ground bait in the feeder",even it still a small amount it's still the same stuff you would ball in.Most of us would only use a small amount but the idiots would abuse that rule

Yeah I know what you mean. I like using grounbait because it's a good attractor and it's really easy to use. My local ponds owner has banned the use of groundbait completely because of the smell of it when stale[xx(]. He went to a commercial carp water and because every1 was bunging in 5 kilos of the stuff in matches it stank. Surely theres no need for such an amount on a relatively small water (2-3acres). Can you matchmen tell me if there is[?] cheers, **Joey-Mackeral**

i've seen alot of fisherys putting a limit of 1kg of ground bait which seems fair to me but if they don't act on it or let their mates get away with it then there's no point have the rule

You will probably find that the reason is that it evens up the compitition with the ones who specialise in a certain method ie paste, pellet.Best bet is to leave them to it and find somewhere else.
