Anglers fined £1700 for illegally fishing in Badshot Lea

Two men have been fined just over £1,700 for fishing illegally at Badshot Lea Ponds.

An Environment Agency enforcement officer found them at the site in September 2017, both without a valid fishing licence.

In England, one is needed if you are aged 12 or over and fish for salmon, trout, freshwater fish, smelt or eel.

38 year-old Lee Grant of Eton Road, Southsea, and 29 year-old James Black of Heathyfields Road, Farnham, were reported for the offence.

They have been fined £660 each, on top of added costs and a victim surcharge, meaning they both have to cough up £853.

David Brain, Fisheries Team Leader of the Environment Agency, said: "The majority of anglers fish legally and purchase a fishing licence. 

"We invest the money from fishing licences back into fisheries improvements, fish stocks and fishing, this is essential for the future of the sport. 

"The minority of anglers that fail to buy a fishing licence are cheating their fellow anglers and the future of the sport. 

"In addition fishing licence cheats risk a criminal conviction, a significant fine and could lose their fishing equipment."
