Angling Trust proposals for a return to angling

28 Apr

The Angling Trust has issued proposals about a possible return to angling under the short title “When We Fish Again”, and summarised in their press release as:

“Following discussions with our advisors and supporters in Parliament we have submitted our proposals to Government Ministers on how angling could be permitted as a safe, healthy, beneficial sport and why it should take its position at the front of the queue when restrictions are reviewed.”

 
This is a very well argued and persuasive case for the re-introduction as soon as possible of angling when the coronavirus restrictions are reviewed (next due on 7th May!). The Angling Trust has been very proactive about this, and deserves our continuing support.
Here are links to PDFs of the summary and full reports, and you should also encourage as many people as possible to watch the video

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE RESTRICTIONS ON ANGLING HAVE NOT BEEN LIFTED

 
We must stay safe, stay healthy and keep our fingers crossed!
