COVID-19 Angling Resumption

The club are introducing a series of interim measures for when angling is given the green light to start again. These will be regularly reviewed in relation to government developments and the situation on our waters.
All are designed to comply with the current rules, maintain the safety of our members and ensure all our members get equal opportunity to fish. Please see the dedicated carp fishing resumption page for specific details on carp angling.

General Regulations

 

  • Any member who displays any symptoms of COVID-19, or has been in contact with a person displaying symptoms, MUST NOT enter any club venue until completing the necessary period of quarantine
  • All day and guest tickets are suspended. Access to our waters is strictly for members and any existing non-angling guests on their ticket
  • All club buildings and huts are closed. Members are not required to sign in at Hucklesbrook or Whitesheet. Toilets remain in use on all waters but members must obey the personal hygiene measures advised by the government in relation to hand washing when using them
  • All members must be in possession of hand wipes, anti-bacterial gel or alcohol rub/spray when on club property. Bailiffs will be able to ask to see this and those without will be asked to leave immediately. Hands must be washed following the touching of all gates, toilet facilities or other infrastructure
  • No sharing of swims and/or tackle will be allowed. Double swims must only be occupied by members of the same household where the same address is held on the club database for each member
  • All fishing is at the member’s risk. All current government regulations must be strictly abided by. Members must keep at least 2m apart at all times
  • If any water becomes too busy the club reserve the right to introduce additional measures to control access and ensure government conditions are adhered by
  • Where members can choose the days they fish, we would ask them to consider the wider membership. Many key workers are restricted to fishing weekends only, please fish when you feel venues will be quietest so others can access them when they are able

Please remember – the initial lifting of the angling ban does not mean the danger is over. It simply means the current infection rate and death toll are managable by the NHS and coronial system!
