From BA Facebook page ,
From today the coarse fishing season has opened which means you can now fish the Broads waterways ??

Angling can be enjoyed alone, with members of your household or with those in your social bubble.

Please make sure you have a rod fishing license as it is a criminal offence to fish without one. A license can be purchased online/over the phone from the Environment Agency, or from your local post office.

Whilst night fishing is permitted, the recent Government guidance on using a boat inland and on the coast states that 'You must not stay overnight on any boat, unless it’s your primary residence.' We have sought clarification on whether night fishing from boats is legally permitted, and are awaiting a response from the Government.

In the meantime we suggest that individuals who are looking to fish from their boats wait until it is clear whether this is legal or not before proceeding.

Thank you for your understanding.

Is it any wonder that people are ignoring the restrictions and guidance?

I can take my boat out at, say, 7pm, moor anywhere there is access to the bank, set up my rods and fish from the bank all night, pack up at 7am and take my boat back to its home mooring. But heaven forbid I should have 40 winks on the boat.

I have tried to stick very closely to the guidance, but it is now getting rather silly.

"..for the avoidance of any doubt, the broads are not legally a national park and do not come under the national park legislation, and nor will they."

All a little murky, How about this Paladine as you said but....  have your fifty winks on your boat during the day, don't think this is breaking any rules, maybe flexing them a little.

Its the new Broads AUTHORITY! They can tell you what to do but cannot enforce it!

Do the Covid 19 regs / guidance state “ you must not stay on any boat overnight - unless it’s your primary residence , or, “ you must return to your primary resisdence every night “ ?

Why can’t people just accept the rules. If the. government allowed one tiny self interest group to be exempt then every other  tiny self interest group would point to them and say, “why not us. we are not putting anyone at risk” soon the entire population would claim an exemption.  
Releasing the restrictions has to be done in an incremental manner to asses the effect  on the spread of the disease.
I’d rather miss my boating for the rest of the year than risk the death another 60000 people in this country. Reading back through the various threads on this matter it’s strange to see that some of the people who were accusing other members of being selfish in asking the BA for a reduction in tolls saying that they were being selfish in a time when there are much more important issues are now the ones saying that we should ignore those issues.

As the saying goes, “suck it up”

if it is to be it is up to me.
