Fishing for migratory fish (Salmon and Sea Trout) is not allowed on Sundays. Originally this law was applied to netting stations. Also called a "slap" it enabled at least some fish to get past the nets and up the river. These days virtually all the nets have gone so it applies only to rod anglers, but the principal is the same. It gives the fish (and people that work on the river) a day off! The other reason the law was originally brought in was religion. The Church feared that congregations would fall if fishing was allowed on Sundays.

It is perfectly legal to fish for other species (brown trout, coarse fish, sea fish etc,) on Sundays. A few beats close all together on Sundays so be a little careful.. Check the venue rules before you turn up!
