Fishing on Flatts Bridge is a no-no
While I am in the grandfather age bracket, I did have a look at your RG Kids magazine in last Thursday’s Royal Gazette. which was loaded with things for young people to do this summer and, in fact, most of the year.
I was, however, alarmed at your “places to fish” shown on pages 14 and 19. There is no fishing allowed on Flatts Bridge and this fact is usually posted — although the signs seem to be collectors’ items and disappear regularly.
This is a safety issue.
Likewise, fishing from Watford Bridge can also be a safety issue. With the boat traffic in and around Albuoy’s Point, this location would also not be recommended. Although not mentioned by you, fishing is prohibited from ferry wharves mainly because of safety issues.
What does this leave for the avid, young fisherman? There are numerous good fishing spots on the shore of a number of our parks and other public shoreline around the island where these young fishermen would not have to worry about boats coming and going, and people getting tangled or even hooked in fishing gear.
