(i)the net and any warps are not made or held stationary, nor allowed to remain stationary, nor allowed to drift with the current or tide but are both paid out and hauled in as quickly as practicable and kept in unchecked motion by and under the effectual command and control of the fisherman for the purpose of enclosing the salmon within the sweep of the net and drawing them to the bank or shore;

(ii)no stakes or dykes or other obstructive devices or other nets are used in association with the net;

(iv)the net shall not come within 50 metres of any other such net already being paid out or hauled, until the last mentioned net has been fully hauled in to the bank or shore; and

(v)the net is not designed or constructed for the purpose of catching fish by enmeshing them; and

(b)fishing for or taking salmon by bag net, fly net or other stake net means the use of a fish trap (including the use of a landing net to remove salmon from such a trap) consisting of one or more fish courts and associated inscales and wings, together with a leader net designed to lead the salmon into the trap, the whole of which is fixed or moored to the shore or seabed, provided that–
