The rules state that all POAO (products of animal origin)are banned. Therefore no amount of fish meal boilie will be allowed. If they are confiscating one ham sandwich how are they going to allow you to take 20kg of krill or any other fish meal type bait. How the customs will be able to tell the difference between a fish meal and a nut bait, remains to be seen. They will probably just take everything. Good luck to anyone trying to reason with a customs official. They are the same the world over.
Just look at the tv program about border force in Australia. They are always stopping Chinese people bring in food. We are now in the same position. It all will get confiscated and chucked in the bin, if they do any searches.

I think the term fishery products is causing some confusion still; it is as you say and not bait..

I did say 'if that is the limit'

Serious question....do you work in Customs and Excise or a freight forwarding company with full export knowledge?

The 20kg limit is NOT for bait, which is classed as animal feed containing ABPs. The 20kg limit is for ‘fishery products’ such as fresh or processed fish and some shellfish such as prawns, mussels and oysters. This does NOT apply to bait products.

It ain’t that simple, dry particles are subject to plant health requirements (part of the wider SPS regime) and will require Phytosanitary Certificates. Probably won’t apply to cooked particles though, but you’d be better to check with the Animal & Plant Health Agency.

Joss, to my knowledge at the moment It shouldn't make any difference to individuals with their 20kg if thats the limit but it will depend on how it's policed at the border and the information they've been given on what's allowed and what isn't.
For bait co's exporting larger amounts there's a lot more hurdles and restrictions depending on composition, amounts of ABP's and Dairy ect.....it's far from plain and simple but I wouldn't think it can be policed at that level at the passenger ports.
Even DPD have had to stop sending across because of incorrect paperwork and a backlog of refused packages and they're French owned!

Going to France to fish ,you can expect it to be a given ,that you will be searched for bait and illegal imports , these being food as well as your bait.
We stand out especially when dressed in camo gear.
One glance in the vehicle will show you are an angler you will then be targeted for close inspection, all illegal imports will be confiscated, and I will be surprised if you are not fined and then charged an exorbitant fee for cost of disposal of the illegal goods you have been caught trying to smuggle into the E.U.
This is punishment for the UK leaving the E.U.
You just have to ask yourself do I want to visit such a friendly group of countries as this at all ? Be it for fishing and or holidays in general. Any one stood in a giant queue to leave a Greek island at the end of a holiday ,I can well imagine that queue twice as long ,as well as the one when you arrive.
The actual people running the EU are not elected,( the elected one are told to reconsider when they get it wrong,and invariably do as they are told,) ) so they are free to do what they like to errant members and ex-members who chose to leave their cosy Family, regardless to the economic effects on their people.

If the whole of the UK stopped going on any holidays in the EU for the next year it may encourage them to moderate their behaviour towards us.
If we do this straight away it will be so much more effective coming straight after Covid.

it should be noted that far more of us go to the EU than they come here.

That's a shame, we generally much prefer them to UK supermarkets. They have got more expensive over the years which even in your 11 years you will have noticed, sometimes this can be a bit of a shocker depending on location. They need Haloumi though!! so I agree with you on that one..

I messaged sticky baits on Instagram and they sent me the link below, if I’m correct from non European countries ( which we now are) you can take 20kg? Please correct me if I’m wrong though?

Pretty sure you can survive 1 week in france on their food... as others said it is part of the experience... some pate, ham, eggs, butter, cheese and few steaks and you are good to go... also pretty sure once covid **** settles down no one will be doing big checks on border anyway...

I lived in France for over 11 years so am well experienced of what the supermarkets sell and what they don't.

They don´t sell a lot of the English food that I like and having lived in France for over 11 years I never got used to or enjoyed much of their food.

It all seems to be an interpretation of rules set out for food for human consumption and animal feedstuffs but not specifically anglers bait for personal use.

Genuine question to anyone who may know: What did the non EU countries anglers do in the world champs at Madine etc. ? Australia for instance, did they bring bait or buy whatever they could get locally?
