The Covid-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on everybody and it is the club's (and it's members) responsibility to ensure that everything we do is carried out safely and according to the current regulations. This page is intended as a guide to the current regulations, but it is stressed that members may need to check with external websites for any changes.
Fish safely, locally and respect the ‘rule of two’ during lockdown.
Having now examined the government’s new Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) (No. 4) Regulations the Angling Trust is pleased to be able to offer some initial guidance and interpretation to anglers and fishery providers. Our formal guidelines will be published following further consultation with colleagues at Sport England and DCMS once Parliament has debated the regulations today and passed them into law.
Overall the Angling Trust is pleased that ministers have recognised the value of allowing angling and some other forms of outdoor recreation to continue through the forthcoming lockdown period. However, the new rules are more complicated than we had hoped and anglers should be fully aware of what we can and can’t do in the next 28 days.
How to Fish
The regulations are clear and you can only leave home to fish with members of your own household, your support bubble or with one other individual. The Rule of Six is now effectively the Rule of Two for most of us. The tightening of the rules on ‘gatherings’ means that match fishing or any other organised fishing event is prohibited by law during lockdown. However, competitive fishing will be able to resume once there is a return to the three tier system of restrictions.
Reddish Angling Club is committed to ensuring that it members can attend the clubs waters in as safe a manner as possible. In order for this to happen all members must follow the following guidance.
Do not attend Jackson's if you or any member of your household have any Covid symptoms - follow government guidlines on self-isolating.
Social distancing must be observed at all times (2m minimum distance)
Hand sanitizer to be used before and after opening or closing locks and gates. wipe down any surfaces that you touch.
One angler only per peg (unless members from a single household or "bubble")
No sharing of tackle and equipment.
Observe any bailiffs instructions.
Members should only visit Jackson's when attending to fish or on official committee business. Bank walkers should not attend.
Unfortunatley, as we cannot guarantee the complete cleanliness of the toilet facilites, they must remain closed until we are advised that it is safe to reopen them.
Following the Government’s latest Covid-19 guidance relating to the phased return of sport and recreation, organisers of angling competitions are now legally required to carry out a thorough Risk Assessment to mitigate the risk of spreading the virus.
We can confirm that the Match Secretary carries out this risk assessment before each match and guidance given to participants as
