Angling-related litter

Never drop litter or discard tackle and remember that discarded nylon is particularly hazardous to wildlife. Discarded or damaged line should be taken home and burnt or cut into short lengths before disposal.

Always clear up litter before you leave - even if it's not yours. If you see any litter or discarded tackle, pick it up, take it home and bin it.

Breakages and snagging

Remove immediately rigs caught up in bank side vegetation, branches or underwater snags where it is practicable and safe to do so.

Report lost terminal tackle to club bailiffs or the fishery officer for removal, if you cannot recover it.
