Just to spell it out, nobody should be going fishing for the next three weeks. The Association has received several briefings from the Angling trust, and I attach the following quote from one of them:
“We must all do what is required of us by the Government and work together to fight this pandemic. Therefore until further notice we should all refrain from fishing. This is about saving lives and supporting the NHS.
In regards to the current restrictions announced by the Government on Monday 23 March 2020 it is clear that the only permitted activities that have been specified are walking, running and cycling for the purpose of local daily exercise”
Please in the interests of everybody adhere to this.
