Fishing from Wednesday?

No specific mention of angling in Boris' speech but unlimited exercise, sport with family members and socially distant sitting in the park sounds a lot like a green light for England - but alas not Wales or Scotland.

Edit: Its also worth noting that the EA's website to buy a licence was locked last week, it is now back open.

I think it’s been given the green light (see link below) however I would need one of my clubs to give us the green light  before I decide to go..

I’ve also been told that The sports minister (Oliver Dowden) has confirmed on Twitter that angling is allowed.

But as I said; I would still need one of my clubs to give us the green light  before I decided to go, and it would only be on one of our more remote fisheries and definately not where I’d be expecting any company.

Or I might just wait till the rivers open on the 16th June.

That's my interpretation of it too Ken, but there should be more info when it's discussed in Parliament tomorrow.

As Keith says, it's all dependent on which fisheries will be open. I haven't joined a club yet, been waiting to hear what might happen. If/when I do, I will still struggle to find a water that will meet social distancing requirements, so I might hang on until the 16th and have a better chance of finding somewhere.

Nothing from the BAA yet but they don't control the pool or canal that I've started baiting up.

I've Been working throughout this pandemic due to the nature of my job. 

Would love the chance to get out for a few hours to just relax and take my mind off things. But with everyone furloughed or off work i suspect even the quieter places i fish will be full as no-one will be at work and they will very quickly get crowded. Looking at announcements from clubs so far i dont think as many places will be open Wednesday as people expect and i still refuse to go to some puddle and catch overstocked fish.


everytime i catch a fish i'm lucky when i blank i'm a hopeless angler.

I've just been looking in on another angling site, and there was a discussion about what anglers were allowed to do now we can actually go fishing. What struck me was the number of times the 'rules' of the Angling Trust were mentioned. How long have the Angling Trust been the angling rule makers? Was there a vote taken amongst the members, (the few that exist), that made it the governing/ruling body, as opposed to the representative/advisory body? I have always seen the EA as the ones who set the rules, backed up by the local by laws, and those who run the fisheries. Am I the only one who still feels this way?

I'm beginning to see what Barry was on about with his campaigning against the ATr.
