Temporary Rule Update

All, I’m sure many of you are aware of the new product ‘the magic twig’ which OMC are launching, there has been a lot of discussions about this wether it be the ethics of the component or the fish safety side of it.

As per the recent committee meeting we have decided to prohibit the use of the product on the society waters. This will then be reviewed again once the angling community and the committee has obtained more information/carried out further tests on it.

The decision on this prohibition was soley based on fish safety due to the arms trailing behind the fish not to stop innovation.

We will keep you informed in due course.

In principle when a fish pulls with adequate force agains…
