The only full-time salmon fisherman on the River Severn says new regulations risk putting him out of business and destroying a traditional way of life which dates back centuries.
The Environment Agency, which licences river fishing, has told Nigel Mott he can catch no more than 30 fish a year. Nigel Mott fishes for wild salmon near Lydney using putchers, wire cages which the salmon swim into as the tide ebbs. Previously he was allowed to caatch as many as he liked.
