Thanks Eddie,

Kinda weird, when I first spotted this thread back up the links (none of them) would load the UK forums

Fly Fishing in Germany

Kelly.
The link led to an extremely interesting article on fishing in Germany. I was impressed by the amount of education that German authorities require fishers to undertake.

Kelly's got it right! Very strict rules and enforcement! Learned the hard way in the 70s when a farmer told my German speaking gf that I could fish a lake near Bremeraven. I was wondering why all the guys with euro tackle on the banks were staring at me fly fishing and releasing Bach Forellen (Brown Trout the only German word I knew beside beer!).then the constable came and wanted to lock me up!Still don't know what went wrong to this day but that was my extent of German fishing!

Today, C&R is basically banned in Germany, but I don't know what the situation was in the 70s. Maybe you strolled up to the wrong lake.

In Switzerland we have a similar law. Fishing with the "intent" to catch and release a fish isn't allowed. How someone determines that intent is beyond me. Releasing fish that are undersized or protected is the law, but you can also release non-targeted species and fish for "ecological reasons". The only fish you are absolutely required to kill are non-natives (rainbows, sunfish, etc.)

Honestly, if I were going to Germany, wanted to spend a day fishing, and I didn't speak German, I'd probably just go ahead and hire a guide. I find it all confusing enough and I'm fluent...
