Stay apart - Stay safe whilst fishing

Anglers are reminded to observe social distancing rules when going fishing during the current Covid 19 pandemic.

Following Prime Minister Boris Johnson's announcement of the resumption of 'unlimited outdoor sports', anglers should only go fishing alone, with a member of their own household or with one person who isn't from their household. Participants from outside one household can't travel in the same vehicle and social distancing rules must be followed at all times.

As a result of the outbreak fisheries have introduced measures to keep anglers and their staff safe. In some cases these include using only every other peg, closing cafes or asking anglers to arrive with the correct change.

The decision to include outdoor activities such as angling in the first wave of newly permitted activities follows weeks of lobbying by the Angling Trust which unified the angling community and saw over 8,000 individual emails being sent to MPs and dozens of articles in the regional and national press in support of a safe return for angling.

The Angling Trust will be seeking clarification about the reopening of tackle shops and confirmation of any restrictions on how angling should be practised during the next phase.

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.

Broad Acres offers mid-week fishing tuition

Worcestershire's Broad Acres Fishery has introduced mid-week one-to-one fishing tuition for new, novice and experienced anglers. The two hour sessions cost £10.00 for juniors under 16 and £20.00 for adults plus the cost of the day ticket. Tackle and bait will be provided for anglers who have not fished before although existing anglers should bring their own tackle and the bait they wish to use.

In common with an increasing number of fisheries, Staffordshire's Pipehill Fisheries has banned the taking of stink bags onto the site in a move to prevent the spread of disease.

Free licences attract the youngsters

The number of young people going fishing has increased significantly since the introduction of free junior licences last year.

According to the Environment Agency a total of 79,000 junior licences - which are freely available on the internet - were issued over the year, representing a 53 per cent increase.

The age bracket for free junior licences has changed from 12-16 to 13-16 year olds. Those under 13 do not need a licence to fish.
