Unfortunately the new government regulations mean that all forms of organised angling events will be unlawful during this second lockdown period. This will effect coaching and participation events as well as competitive fishing.
Within the new regulations, The Government have provided some very specific wording to define what they constitute a gathering;
A gathering takes place when two or more persons are present together in the same place in order
a) To engage in any form of social interaction with each other, or
b) To undertake any other activity with each other
Whilst the Government have previously agreed to our approach by which competition angling could safely continue this revised and specific definition means that this is no longer the case and unfortunately organised competitive angling is required by law to cease for the period of this lockdown.
As a result all Angling Trust competitions will be suspended across the period 5/11/20 – 2/12/20 inclusive. Ticket holders will be offered the option of transferring their booking to a re-scheduled date or a full refund.
My team and I will continue to work to ensure that as we return to the tiered regional approach following this lockdown competition infrastructure can resume safely and compliantly with Government legislation. Thank you very much for your understanding.
An angler with a ticket during a postponed event has both the option to:
1) Keep their ticket to assess whether the replacement date is feasible (where replacement dates can be found)
2) Have a full refund and cancel their ticket. To cancel a ticket please email [email protected] (Stating which event they would like to cancel and date, and include their full name, AT individual membership number and postcode)
Further details will be announced soon for any re-arranged events.
Silverfish is exactly what it says on the tin, an individual Silverfish event where the top angler in every 15 peg zone qualifies through to the Grand Final with an estimated prize pot of over £10,000!
Qualifiers take in both natural venues and commercial fisheries, spanning the north, midlands and south, meaning whatever style of angling you are into, and wherever you are based, there will be a qualifier for you.
Both AT members and Non-AT members are welcome, with a £25 and £40 price point to boot, making this another cracking value contest with a BIG money final.
