I'd agree about driving past other fisheries, I have to fisheries very close to me a stretch of canal and a club lake. I could fish these the Canal can fish OK this time of year but as I'm in a built up area the towpath is extremely busy the lake is hard most of the time and the chances of catching are almost zero. So I probably won't go unless we get a exceptional mild spell as I don't think I can justify driving pass those to get to river I would normally fish.I will explain more, speaking to John who runs Packington Somers his interpretation was. If you pass other fisheries to come to his you are not staying local. I have 4 fisheries within my CV postcode so thats why i said about fishing in your local postcode. It is difficult but it's just about being sensible really.
All the lakes are solid so i won't worry too much myself.
My GU postcode covers a very large are including large parts of Surrey and Hampshire so I don't think that could be defined as local, It might be able to use GU xx but in my case it still includes parts of a different town.
