Be considerate
There are laws and written rules, but for the benefit of all of us, there are some unwritten common sense and social rules too:

  1. Be considerate to nature and other people
  2. Don't leave anything where you have been. Remove all line, trash, bottles etc.
  3. Put out fire and barbeques with sand or water an remove non-decomposable material
  4. Don't fish where everybody else fishes. There's a lot of space out there, so why stand shoulder by shoulder?
  5. When you arrive to a spot where other people are fishing, disturb them as little as possible. Most people come to fish and be alone, not to talk or mingle.
  6. Conversation is a two part process, and if a person doesn't reply, it's probably a clear signal
  7. Consider walking along while you fish - concentrating on certain spots, but leaving them after a while. You will cover more water, see more things and leave places undisturbed - ready to return to later.
  8. There's no rule that says you should walk or move while you fish, so many fishers will stand still for a long time. Let them! Pass them by stopping your casts in good time. Reel up your line and pass behind them, and fish on on the other side.
  9. Respect all signs; privacy, no cardriving, no parking. Some peole see a lot of rude fishers, and it ruins fishing for all of us.
