Safeguarding the future of the river Usk
Rob Evans, Freshwater Fisheries Advisor for Natural Resources Wales, has circulated the following email and attachments, about which we thought you would like to know.
The content of the email is:
Natural Resources Wales and the Environment Agency are consulting on proposed changes to rod licence duties and structures for 2017/18 (and then fixed until at least March 2020).
I attach for your information a copy of the formal notice which will appear in some newspapers and the Angling press in Wales and England from Friday, 6 May (including the Western Mail and Daily Post in Wales). I have also attached a brief summary of what the changes will mean and how they will work (this document will be available in Welsh soon).
There have been no changes to the rod licence duties for the past seven years and we trust the overall package, which includes proposals for a free junior licence, will be broadly welcomed by our stakeholders.
