What about the other cars going through with peoples lunch, animal foods and god knows what else. Will they check them all? I think they will negotiate with the U.K. to strike a balance of some sort rather than the headache of checking every single vehicle. I have just seen the paperwork and ballache for sending horses across to Europe to go to the big horse shows. It means extra fees etc but they are already working out how itís going to affect the transition between countries so Iím sure fishing will fall inline pretty soon. The only thing Iím a bit concerned about is will it be sorted by this spring.

Seems to me the carp will have to go on a diet for a while that rely on U.K. anglers baits .

French customs will probably set up a ducking stool type system with which British anglers can be immersed in the dockside waters. If you float - you've obviously got a colon full of pop-ups and will be prosecuted. If you drown, carry on sir, no further questions.

With you all the way OG. Have caught (in one week) all my biggest fish on cell 3x 50s, 3x60s 1x75 (lake record) and a host of slightly smaller. In fact thinking about it itís all I really use and it catches every where I go.

I suspect that by the time we all start going there this might have blown over. Customs will very quickly get fed up with emptying trailers and huge white vans full of tackle to find bait. I'm more worried about food. We take all of our food and drink with us as we got fed up with buying shocking wine from French supermarkets and we only need to shop for bread. I guess shopping for meat out there isn't too much hassle.

It's only January the 15th.
IF the worst comes to the worst we'll have to buy our bait over there, for some that will be a such a problem that they won't go but for the majority who goes once a year it won't be a showstopper.

Employees of U.K. bait companies will probably notice too. The easily accessible market for UK-produced bait has shrunk from 28 countries to 1. In fact, not even a whole 1 as you can count NIreland out.

Many of these companies will now be exporting production and jobs, rather than goods.

The only people who will notice are the English owners of French lakes. They will have to advertise on the continent rather than England. It won't be long before bait companies are producing versions of their bait on the continent.

The money they will lose from anglers who will actually boycott european trips wouldn't pay for the toilet paper at the Eurostar Terminal.

Iíd have to disagree I donít think it would be a big problem if they lost our money it wonít mean a lot to them, thing of all the other countryís anglers going there plus anglers money wonít be that big to them

I wonít go on a trip where I canít use the bait I want to. And if the french want to lose out on millions of pounds of trade then thatís up to them. I personally think this will get ironed out at some point this year as carp angler make up a fair old percentage of users of the tunnel and ferries. The french will see that itís a trade worth many millions of pounds. It will just take time to sort
