Guidance and support during the Covid-19 epidemic

Now that we are back fishing again, we are regularly updating our guidelines to anglers, clubs, fisheries, coaches and other angling organisations to ensure fishing complies with the latest Government guidance during the Covid-19 epidemic.

We have also continued to add to our Fishing Buzz website with new articles, videos, hints and tips to keep you going in between fishing trips.
