Following the AGM a rule change has been agreed -

Rule 60 formerly about the use of circle hooks was replaced by the following-
Rule 60. Barbless hooks when bait fishing are compulsory on Bodmin Anglers Association waters between 1st September to 15th December inclusive.
This means that if you use worms, shrimps, prawns, natural sand eels, cheese, oysters etc. as bait they must be mounted on a barbless hook.
This rule does not effect the use of a barbed hook on spinners spoons artificial flies or plugs.
