PAC targets fishing clubs - Angling Times

As this week's Angling Times reports, the PAC has written to clubs controlling fishing along the Warwickshire Avon, in response to former World Champion match angler Bob Nudd's claims there were too many pike in the river and they needed culling.

We've asked for their assurance they won't be mounting a predator cull, while we look into the legal situation as regards clubs which rent or lease their waters from the Environment Agency staging a cull.

AT has launched a Protect Our Predators campaign, which the PAC supports.

We urge all predator anglers to be vigilant and inform us of any anti-pike letters or articles which appear in their local press.
