Resumption of Angling

____________________


The First Minister has announced a further relaxation of the Lockdown which will commence on Friday 3rd July with the lifting of the 5 mile travel limit for leisure.


Key points for Anglers:

Travel to and from fisheries by private vehicle. Any passengers must be from the same household and Scottish Government Social distancing regulations must be observed.

Parking and social interaction on arrival at the fishery must be responsible and consistent with Scottish Government social distancing regulations.

Fishery access and use.  Anglers must not share fishing tackle or equipment, except with members of the same household.

Gates and stiles are common on fisheries, and where they need to be used, appropriate sanitation measures should be taken by anglers, including use of gloves and disinfectant hand gels as appropriate.


Please note that a Bailiff has no power to enforce any of the above and any infringement should be reported directly to the police where appropriate.
