All Welsh anglers are under lockdown
Government has announced the details
of a coronavirus “circuit
breaker” or “fire-break” that
will come in to force at 6:00pm on Friday 23
October until the start of Monday 9 November 2020.
During this period non-essential travel in and to
Wales is not permitted. All leisure and non-essential
retail will be closed for this period including
Fishing Tackle and bait shops
UPDATE – On
October 14, the Government introduced a new three tier
system of Covid
restrictions. Fishing and outdoor sports remain accepted by
the Government as low risk
activities and can largely continue within the new regulations
in all the three tiers.
However, there has been some tightening of the restrictions
and the government discourages
travel into and out of the Tier 3, Very High, alert
level areas. As anglers we have an individual
responsibility to fish safely, to adhere strictly to the rules
and to follow the appropriate guidance
for travel in the various areas.
For advice and
further restrictions on local lockdowns, please see the latest Government guidance.
