Taking my grandson for a walk along the Bure near GY Yacht Station, I spotted some young kids with a line hauling out tiny crab after tiny crab - on a bit of bacon tied to a leaded line, most of ‘em fell off before being netted - and, naturally, my grandson joined them for a bit of fun, inspecting and giggling at the little crabs before throwing them back in the water.

He’s begged to do it himself and I’ll take him on Monday or Tuesday, and it got me wondering whether or not an Angling Licence is necessary. It would be a pretty bumptious official who would challenge a 4-year-old boy dangling a piece of string in the water, but they do exist…

Hi Peter, you wont need a license for a 4 year old and if you are not using a Hook (which you wont need) you don't need one anyway. Enjoy, Ive spent many an hour on the quay side at Looe Harbour in Cornwall fishing for crabs with the kids. Great fun.

p.s. we used fish heads from the fishmonger on the Quay.

Oh dear! The title of this thread must elicit some comment other than saltwater crustaceans! Any guesses who might chip up first?  Playful

Regards, Ray.

Whatever happens now, I'm blaming it on Brexit. Everyone else is!

Up here kiddies catching crabs is given near religious significance along Blakeney quay. In Suffolk Walberswick has a festival of it every summer.

Oh wow, how that brings back memories. When I was in single figures we had a caravan at Dovercourt. My sister and I would get bacon trim for free from the local butchers, my mum would 'save' some for another day for us. We never caught anything worthwhile but had a lot of fun including watching crabs escaping from an overfilled bucket. We always seemed to have a bacon based tea that day too Smile

Watched crabbing antics at both Wells Quay and Blakeney in recent weeks. Wells wins hands down for quantity and size!

Ah... Looe harbour. Sailed dinghies out of there many a time.
We have close family connections there so have been umpteen times.
The gulls there are extremely adept in the art of fish and chips theft. So beware if you visit.
