Some of the finest bream fishing in Broadland is to be had from the St Benet's Abbey area. I note now that it is no longer a day ticket water, annual ticket only (£20.00). Details here showing where you can fish at St Benets. If you intend fishing there on holiday then it would seem prudent to get your tickets before you go. £20.00 for us keen anglers must be the sale of the century!

Hi all, good news to share with you (and no it isn't an April fools joke before someone asks!) Best, Tom Progress update on St Benet’s Abbey 24 hour moorings (1 April) The Broads Author

Sorry for the double post but here's the update as promised. Best, Tom Progress update on St Benet’s Abbey 24 hour moorings (23 March) As reported last week, the Authority took the decision

I , like many other members I’m sure , would like to thank Tom for posting the updated information so quickly after it was confirmed and to end any further speculation as to St Benêts immediate future

Excuse my stupidness if I am being stupid😣, but does this mean you are meant to have a separate licence should you fish at the moorings beside st bennets?

from the map in the link it would appear that even the mooring is Norwich and District Angler's Association private waters, so the answer is yes you need to pay the fee to fish from the moorings (not sure if you need to if fishing from the boat?

You will need your usual fishing license for fishing the Broads but beyond that I can only guess. The map shows that the NDAA now appears to have control of the fishing at the Abbey and their website appears to suggest that the fishing is for their members and I can only guess that it will be for their members only.  If the NDAA has taken control of the fishery there then I suspect that they will need to at least balance their books.

My thought is that this will apply to the forthcoming season. Am I not right in thinking that some of the area marked as blue, seemingly now under NDAA control, is part of the BA's 24hr mooring at St Benets?

guess if you are fishing from your boat then you'd be ok unless there are:

1) signs clearly showing the additional annual ticket is required to fish there, and

2) somebody comes round collecting the fee

or 3) ignorance is bliss and you could act :default_dunce:

It does look to me that the moorings are part of the blue area. Surely the area can only belong to one body?

How do you go about buying a stretch of water?, which is owned either side by an authority, ( broads). They could refuse boat access, as in private waters?

I think they are at it.

So do I. The BA leases the land that is the 24hr mooring. The fishing club shows a map that suggests that they are in control.

Tom, Broads Authority, what's going on, clarification please?

I do a bit of dabbling myself but nothing serious. I would have thought that if there were a charge to fish at St Bennet's moorings then a proper clear sign would be posted stating the case.

As most hirers usually think they can fish from the moorings as on most 24 hr moorings it would be common sense to inform them with a notice if it was not the case at St Bennet's.

Perhaps somebody from NBA could clarify the situation on this and other Broads websites.

I note that our good friend Paladine has raised this topic elsewhere. As usual he has raised some relevant facts and asked some pertinent questions. The Norwich & District Angling Association's website begs a response from on high.

it also begs the question of anglers giving way to cruisers that wish to moor, as the normal BA signeage usually states that anglers may fish, but need to move if someone wants to moor up at that spot, if the fishers are paying membership to fish there, does this not imply they will not be required to move, suppose you turn up at the mooring and they have an angling match going with anglers set up every 20ft along the mooring, what then?

In addition, remember that the Bure at St Benets is a river navigation.  We have talked about this before, where it affects fishing rights.

Sounds as though this needs some clarification, preferably before the boating season starts!

£20 for one and all.    I am pretty sure that my Direct Debit that goes out every year for a pensioner is £20.   What benefits do you get for being a pensioner.   I stand to be corrected.

The benefits of being a pensioner are having sore knees, poor balance, more memories, greater dependency on the NHS, having great grandchildren (bonus), perhaps needing pads or even someone to wipe your bum!

The most relevant comment of the debate! 

Angling has long taken second place to boating on the Broads but nevertheless any lose of moorings has to be a concern to us all.

TOM, OVER TO YOU.

not a fisherman myself but as far as i'm aware fishing is closed 15 mar to 16 june, I'm sure someone will correct me, but the following is copied from their website;-

I wonder if someone at the NDAA has just been a little over-zealous with the blue marker pen? No doubt Tom will have to refer the issue to the NDAA for clarification so it may be a little while before we hear from him. I hope it’s just a silly error! 😳

The NDAA have always controlled the match stretch which was also day ticket where the poles are below the 24hr moorings if they have removed the day ticket option this may be where the confusion lies.

If only!

Have messaged Tom.

I suspect that his response will need to be 'approved' by he who approves such things.

Message received Peter, will speak to colleagues and come back to you all. This is the first I have heard of it.

Tom
