    Default Sunday fishing ban Scotland

    I think it's time this archaic law was lifted,

    One of my favourite rivers will be perfect tomorrow and run off by Monday

    It's hard enough to get decent conditions without Sunday expunged from the calendar

    I believe Sunday rod and line fishing would have little effect on salmon stocks, or at least make it fly only.

    Yes, I am inclined to agree. It is hard for the working man to get any time on the river.

    I think a day of no fishing is good though. It gives the fish a day off and allows them a time to freely move around the river. Does this "day off" need to be a Sunday? Of course not. It could easily be a Wednesday instead.

    I can't see this changing anytime soon, there are too many people stuck in there ways and unwilling to listen to the other side of the debate driveling on about tradition, the Church and what not.

    You'll just have to fish some English rivers unfortunately.

    Good for you.
    I don't.

    Plenty of rivers in England open on a Sunday.

    I also agree with the opening post, two days off a week and I can only fish one of them. It should really be looked at ... time to change this ancient law. What about a 100% catch and release Sunday? At least you could get a bit of fishing on your day off.

    Poor substitute for Salmon fishing considering the scenario Happy days describes.

    Not really.

    It's a bit like someone moving to an island , being perfectly aware of the existing ferry service , and then complaining about it 5 mins after they arrive.
