Birmingham Angling Association bans live baiting and fish removal

The nation's largest fishing club - Birmingham Angling Association - has banned live baiting and also introduced new catch-and-release rules covering all fish except zander.

The BAA's change in rules coincide with the new Environment Agency byelaws governing fish removal which come into force in April.

For more details on this story and the new byelaws read this week's Angling Times, out now.
