Note there is a moratorium of fishing in most rivers. Hmm, maybe the need for such an act has something to do with the fact jagoff anglers can only catch small fish? :roll:
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

Is that still the case? I was editing a story about the credit crunch and about how the unpaid time off was creating an unsurge in the popularity of fishing. I mentioned this moratorium and how the entire thing is illegal, but the writer couldn't find any officials at the forestry or water agencies who could corroborate. There are still many, many anglers out on the waters of all the streams I visit, btw.

Actually, I was wondering the same thing, as I too am seeing more fishermen out everywhere. Most places still have the signs though they could just be old (no one removes signs here, do they?). Hope they all eat what they catch (he he).

I've scoured all the angling/fishing threads but found no real information on where to buy fishing gear.

Anyone know of anywhere near Nehui where I could pick up some cheapish rods and reels for sea fishing in the Philippines?

Cheers

In the Philippines. They'll be much cheaper there, and more suited to the kind of fishing you can do there.

I just want to know where I can catch something other than minnows!


Stay away from the Senior High school girls drinking fountains will ya

Now up in Alishan there are several clean fresh water steams and rivers, but als tourists are not allowed to fish in there. only locals like me with their ID Card addresses up here can legally do that.

Cheaper maybe but the issue, from what I've been told, is quality not availability. So, I'd like to get something here thats got some quality and will last.

So, anyone know anywhere in Neihu or thereabouts where I can find some rods?

Then you're a complete fool. Let me guess: you're probably fucking Scottish or some equally lame nationality.

Anyway, don't know about Neihu, but if you walk from Biddle's gaff back toward Xindian City Hall there are several shops including a Blue Way one which is good. About 5 minutes walk from Biddle's.
