Night and match fishing to return on March 29 as Covid restrictions relax

The Angling Trust has been told by Government that night and match fishing can be resumed on March 29 as part of the Government's relaxation of Covid 19 restrictions.

In a statement, the Angling Trust said: "Fishing will remain permitted as outdoor recreation or exercise for up to six people, or in a larger group if everyone present is from the same two households. A 'household' can include the support bubble linked to that household if eligible. Outdoor recreational activities and exercise may take place at night so you may fish into or through the night. There are no time limits on outdoor recreation. However, you may not go on holiday to go fishing or use fishing as a pretext for a camping trip as overnight stays for these purposes remain prohibited until April 12th (Step 2)

"Match fishing will be enabled as an organised outdoor sport from March 29th. Organised outdoor sports will not be subject to the gatherings limits, but should be compliant with guidance issued by national governing bodies to ensure appropriate steps, including risk assessments, are taken to make it Covid-secure in line with the law. At this stage, these gatherings must only include participants - not spectators.

Covid crisis increases demand for fisheries

A change in people's attitude to work-life balance as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic led to an increased demand for fisheries between April and June 2020 with lifestyle and semi-commercial venues particularly appealing to purchasers, according to fishery sales specialists Fenn Wright. Describing 2020 as one of the most extraordinary years in the company's 252 year history, Fenn Wright added: "With heavy restrictions on foreign travel and people wanting to be active outside, the domestic leisure and holiday market became a very attractive proposition. Specifically, we received a lot of interest in semi-commercial or lifestyle properties deriving an income, together with residential properties with water for private use."

In a statement, the owners said: "We are aware that fisheries are allowed to be open but we have taken the tough and financially challenging decision to remain closed at this time.

Kingsbury goes cashless in changes to day ticket system

Warwickshire Country Parks have gone cashless and simplified its day ticket prices which means anglers fishing Kingsbury Water Park now need to visit the nearest Pay and Display machine located in the staff and disabled car park near the main entrance. Anglers should select the correct tariff for the lake they wish to fish and pay a single fee by card. The fee now incorporates the cost of car parking. Anglers should keep the fishing ticket with them so it can be checked by rangers on the bankside. It is no longer necessary to purchase a separate car parking ticket. Annual permits remain the same.

Prices are now £7.50 for adults on all pools with the exception of Pine Pool, £6.50 for concessions and £9.50 for Pine Pool (no concessions).

Coming soon - a pretty lily pad pool in Herefordshire...

Because of the effects of the Covid 19 virus we have decided to hold off publishing details of Rosefern Pool. However, here's what you will be able to look forward to when spring eventually arrives!

A little known but delightful pool hidden from the main A44 Worcester to Leominster road as you enter the market town of Bromyard, Rosefern Pool was for many years run as a syndicate water but opened for day ticket angling early in 2019 and has already attracted a small but faithful local following. Stocked with more than a dozen species including carp reputed to run to 20lbs, it is an easy water to fish with natural grass pegs and few facilities except for a hard standing car park. It is ideal for parents with younger anglers as the roach and roach/rudd hybrids can give you virtually a fish a cast.
