    Default Can we.......

    Still go fishing? Boris is doing his best to abuse the term vague.

    My interpretation... No.

    Non-essential journey.

    I don't think fishing fits into any of these reasons for going out

    Shopping for necessities, as infrequently as possible;
    One form of exercise a day, such as running or cycling, alone or with household members;
    For medical or care needs, for example to help a vulnerable person;
    Travelling to and from work, but only if you cannot work from home.

    Sadly I agree. I guess a few lucky individuals will have access to waters that dont breach the rules on non essential travel but for most of us I think its off for the forseeable.

    As the main food shopper until I was tagged "high risk" I have to say Ishopping is something I'm not going to miss given the lunacy that's still going on.

    I fell into that category until last Thursday when an inguinal hernia decided to rear its ugly head.

    What timing!

    I reckon I'm in for a good twelve months of pain before I can think, or even want, to get that looked at.

    Sadly I agree that fishing is out for the foreseeable which will upset me greatly . Even a blank is preferable to not going. Ah well we can all feel pious in helping humanity . Stay well.

    Ps how long do maggots keep

    I’ve never been obsessive about my fishing so this enforced lay off is a nuisance to me but no more. Given the reasons for it, it really don’t count for diddly. I wonder how others less pragmatic about their fishing are going to cope ?

    My late father in law used to say that everything matters but nothing matters frightfully. I'm sure the fish will enjoy their isolation more than we.

    Nows the time to get out my curry cook books.

    Thats the niggle about it. Those idiots who brought these stricter rules in place have loused things up for others who were actually being careful and keeping distance from others.
    Obviously fishing is not essential. However there is a vast difference from fishing a busy fishery where you have to pay a bailiff and fish near others than to fish a remote lake where you dont see another soul let alone get close enough to speak to them.

    I can literally drive or cycle half a mile to one such water. Thanks idiots.

    No fishing, it's the close season - we lived through that every year and sure we can do it again.
