STATEMENT FROM THE ANGLING TRUST ON THE NATIONAL LOCKDOWN RULES IN ENGLAND

The regulations have now been published and confirm this evening’s message from the Cabinet Office that the Government have taken the decision that fishing will not be permitted during this national lockdown period. Whilst this is disappointing news I would ask anglers, fisheries and clubs to respect these rules and the reason they have been put in place; to help save lives and support the NHS.

Individuals should not go fishing from midnight tonight (5th Jan) and clubs and fisheries should close their waters to anglers. We will be publishing more detailed guidance on specific areas like bailiffing and fishery maintenance once the Government regulations have been published.

Over past few weeks we have been in communication with the Government at the highest possible level. We have presented a strong case on how fishing could continue safely during the third national lockdown. We have explained that fishing benefits physical health and mental wellbeing and that it is regularly the only form of activity individuals undertake. You can read our representations to Cabinet Ministers here -

https://anglingtrust.net/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/Angling-and-outdoor-recreation-in-COVID-lockdown-3_DCMS.pdf

My team and I have consistently presented the arguments ahead of the changing government guidelines, which have allowed fishing to remain permitted continuously since the first national lockdown was lifted in May. We have been successful when other sports have not as all anglers will know.

However, with 60,000 new infections announced today the Government have taken the decision that leaving home for recreation or leisure, including all forms of recreational fishing, should be prohibited in England during this third national lockdown period.

I thank you for your support and for being a credit to our sport. As members, you can rest assured that the Angling Trust will continue to represent our sport at the highest level and will present proposals for the resumption of angling when it is safe and sensible to do so.  We will come through this period of national crisis. We will fish again, but until then, please, stay safe.

Thank you Steve.     My son who lives in Kent fishes at a private lake.   He will be gutted.   He fishes for England in International Matches and of course that has all come to an end, their last match was supposed to be in Poland.  He will not be a happy chappy at all.

Still Needs must as the devil drives as they say.   It is the only way we are going to get over this awful time.

Agreed, it must be a bit frustrating when anglers see gangs of lycra clad cyclists going for 50 ml+ round trip tho

You are not allowed to travel except for essential shopping and medical needs.   So I cannot see how cycling 50 miles is permitted.   Stay at home and stay local ,  well in my mind 50 miles is not local.

Wack a road tax on cycles, that'll sort them out.   We have to pay road tax on cars busses etc, so as there are so many bikes now  they should be taxed too.    Can a bike do 50 miles in one hour?   Be going some I would think.   Even with go faster stripes on your trusty steed.

Cycling is excersise, fishing is a sport/activity, exercise is allowed.

I wish someone would notify BA then on the apparent misuse of sailboats as opposed to motor cruisers.

Just released by the Angling Trust!

Angling Trust

  ·
Good morning everyone
The Government have now formally responded to the representations made by the Angling Trust. We have promoted the huge benefits of fishing on individual health and wellbeing and have been able to present a case to which the Government have listened. On this basis I am pleased to announce that fishing will be permitted during the third national lockdown in England.
The Head of Sports Participation at DCMS confirmed the following;
“fishing is allowed as exercise so long as participants adhere to the rules on staying local, gathering limits, social distancing and limiting the time spent outdoors”
This has also been confirmed by DEFRA;
“Cabinet Office have now officially confirmed that angling / fishing (incl. sea fishing off private boats, water sports) can be considered exercise and are hence permitted.”
We have worked extremely hard to reach this position and we as anglers have a duty to abide by the strict conditions under which fishing is once again permitted. With infection rates and death tolls rising we must stick to the Government’s rules and ensure that angling remains part of the solution and does not cause problems.
Please bear in mind these key points which will be reflected in the new Angling Trust guidelines which we will publish shortly:
- This is a strictly limited resumption of LOCAL fishing and very different to how we have been allowed to operate since May
- We are in a National Lockdown and this must be respected. The law requires a ‘reasonable excuse’ to leave your home or penalties will apply.
- The government has recognised that fishing can be seen as exercise, which is expressly permitted under the lockdown rules, although outdoor recreation is not.
- Organised sporting gatherings are prohibited so no match fishing.
- The exercise is limited to once a day so no overnight fishing whatsoever.
- To remain within the law you should follow the government’s guidance, and only fish locally within the district where you live. If you have no local fishing available then you will have to take your daily exercise in other ways.
We are once again able to enjoy the sport we love at a time when many others can not and we must ensure that every angler adheres to the rules.
I would ask all anglers who are not members to join the Angling Trust and give us your support. We have worked tirelessly to achieve this outcome and that is only possible thanks to the support of our new and existing members. I would ask all anglers who value their ability to go fishing to make the same commitment as your fellow anglers have and join the Angling Trust. We are stronger together!

Stay safe and very best fishes

How nonsensical has this now become? I can't go to my motor cruiser, and go for a cruise and perhaps mudweight for a while, but, if I take a fishing rod with me, I can do exactly that. All without being more than a mile away from my house.

I really must congratulate the Angling Trust for campaigning so hard against the very ethos of the efforts to get the virus under control and save lives!

What I think that is totally wrong is that the BNA "proclamations" are their interpretation and once again, they don't quite get the message right. Why oh why do they think they are better or wiser than our elected representatives up at Westminster and why do they need to put their "slant " on it? There is enough contradictory advice as it is without the BNA adding to it!

I love fishing but how can it come under the category of exercise.
Maybe if you put two maggots on a hook instead of one the extra stretch to the bait box could get the muscles moving.
