LATEST November 4: FISHING TO CONTINUE

Fishing to continue

Our advice from the Angling Trust is that fishing is unaffected by the new ‘lock down’ provisions.
Angling is deemed a permissible form of ‘outdoor recreation’ and is thus a lawful reason to leave home. It can take place, without time limits, within the provision allowing people “to visit a public outdoor space for the purpose of open air recreation”
However, the regulations are clear that you can only leave home to fish with other members of your own household, your support bubble, or with one other individual. (Please bear that in mind if fishing in a boat, which is something you might well want to do, to catch some of the magnificent fish in the east lake at present.)
