Corvid-19 update #1B – Getting back out fishing

Please read with care the advice below to minimise the risk to you and other people when angling recommences:

  • Anyone displaying symptoms of Covid-19 or shares a household with any individual displaying symptoms, should not go fishing and continue to follow government guidance on isolation
  • If you are in the highest risk (shielding) group outlined by the Government, then you should stay at home.
  • Angling must be undertaken on a solitary basis or only with people from your own household. Social distancing in accordance with Scottish Government guidelines must be maintained at all times.
  • Always follow good hand and respiratory hygiene guidelines e.g. washing of hands,
    use of face coverings in enclosed spaces.
  • Give due consideration to social distancing when parking vehicles, walking along river banks and encountering other anglers and members of the public
  • Do not share tackle outwith the members of your household.
  • Fish locally – avoid travel, restrict journeys to no more than broadly 5 miles.
  • Take your own food and drink to reduce potentially coming into contact with others.
