Well here we are again! Lockdown No.3. What does it mean for fishing this time?

Although SOME fishing is permitted, as confirmed by Angling Trust today, Fisheries can only be open for LOCAL fishermen for exercise and not recreation. It seems that the definition of local is in your own home-town or village.

We have been approached by anglers from over an hour’s drive away to allow them to fish. Is that really in the spirit of the Lockdown? No wonder the virus still spreads.

It is for these reasons that we have chosen to remain closed.

As I type, the lakes are frozen anyway.

The harder we try now, the sooner we can get back to normal.

Stay safe everyone, Chris and Charlotte
