Just a quick one, are you allowed to fish with a bow in the UK?
Many thanks for the info, I think i,ll go and bag some mullet as I can never catch them with a rod!!!!!!You can't bowfish in inland waters, as stated in the above response from the EA, but I've had "an opinion" from the EA that you can bowfish in coastal waters, subject to the same rules as spear fishing:
By "an opinion", I mean that the law is not explicit on the use of archery gear for fishing, but the people at the EA and Defra believe it would fall under the same laws as spear fishing.
Yes you can. But ATM only on the River Fal in Cornwall and only for Mullet. There's a few companies offering canoe/bow fishing trips on the Fal but they are quite expensive. Typically about ?300 for a day!!!Just a quick one, are you allowed to fish with a bow in the UK?
