Anglers’ respite in Wales “firebreak” lockdown

Wales will go into a "fire-break" national lockdown from Friday, October 23 until November 9.
The main message behind the restrictions is to "stay at home". During this time, pubs, restaurants, hotels and non-essential shops will shut, and gatherings, both indoors and outdoors, with people not from the same household will also be banned. However, angling can still continue, provided anglers stick to strict rules: they can only walk or cycle to their chosen venue, and their fishing session – which can be for as long as they wish – so long as their fishing begins and ends at home.
The Angling Trust has argued that outdoor individual sports, such as fishing, where social distancing is practiced, is "a safe and beneficial means for individuals to maintain their health and well-being".
As of Friday, October 16, people who lived in areas of high coronavirus infection rates (Tiers 2 & 3) across the UK were not allowed to travel to Wales unless it was for work, education or other essential purpose (with a reasonable excuse). As of Friday, non-essential cross-border travel in and out of Wales "will have to end", said First Minister, Mark Drakeford.
