Things will change big time for all salmon anglers on the Wye this coming season as new stringent regulations are introduced by the Environment Agency who are reflecting the new rules set by Natural resources Wales for all Rivers that flow through Wales wholly or in part as does the Wye.
Spinners and lures such as Tobies and Mepps will be permitted just one single hook which must also be debarbed and must have a hook gape( the distance between the shank and the point) of 13mm or less. In the past anglers have been permitted to use treble hooks.
There is a full set of rules for the salmon anglers under the Salmon Fishing page which I ask all those members of the Club who fish for salmon to read and become familiar with.
