After a hectic and successful week navigating the consequences for angling of the government’s decision to impose a third National Lockdown in England in response to the rise in coronavirus infections, the Angling Trust has published new comprehensive guidelines and FAQs to help anglers fish safely, locally and responsibly without falling foul of the law.

 

On Wednesday 4 November the Angling Trust released a statement with guidelines for the second lockdown. Under the new rules fishing is still allowed as long as anglers follow the guidelines which can be found on the Angling Trust website here: https://anglingtrust.net/2020/11/04/fish-safely-locally-and-respect-the-rule-of-two-during-lockdown/ or below.

On Thursday 11th February Jon Cruddas MP for Dagenham & Rainham took part in the parliamentary debate concerning Recreational Sea Bass Fishing. The full transcript of the debate can be found by clicking HERE

The Angling Trust has cranked up the pressure to save the UK's threatened bass stocks with a hard-hitting briefing calling for immediate parliamentary action, which is being sent to all MPs this week.
