Please Note:

Due to a significant change in the Common Fisheries Policy, as outlined by the UK Government, “Recreational anglers will only be able to practice catch and release fishing for Bass during the first six months of 2016. This restriction will begin on the 1st of January 2016 and continue until the 30th of June 2016. Any angler catching Bass during this period purposefully or otherwise must return their catch. Normal bass fishing will resume from the 1st of July 2016 with a one fish per day bag limit for anglers.” (DEFRA, 16.12.2015)
In light of the new Bass Regulations, competitors must be aware that there will be a Complete ban on Bass at this year’s Paul Roggerman European Open Beach Championships (4-6th March, 2016). Therefore, Bass will NOT be accepted at weigh in.
NB: It is the individual Anglers responsibility to abide by the new regulations set out by both the Common Fisheries Policy as quoted above and EY Events.
EY Events will not be held responsible for any breach of the new Bass regulations (as quoted above).
