Fisheries begin to allow two in boat

Trout fisheries across England are reviewing guidelines that will allow two people who aren’t from the same household to fish in the same boat, so long as they comply with all other social-distancing rules.

Wimbleball, in Somerset announced that “We are pleased to inform our anglers that as from Monday, June 15, we are allowing two anglers in a boat, as long as they comply with the two-metre social-distancing guidelines”.

Then, today, Draycote, Eyebrook and Thornton guidelines were updated by Fisheries Management UK which will allow anglers to fish with a chosen boat partner as from tomorrow (Wednesday, June 17).

“In line with the Angling Trust Guidelines, we recommend a face-covering when moving the boat under power, we also recommend you bring your own sanitiser to use as and when required during you visit.”
The same booking and ticketing guidelines still apply (ie pre-booking is still required), and special rules requiring social distancing on the pontoon and embarking and disembarking boats have been issued to minimise and queuing at the docking sites. Boats and life-jackets will be disinfected after every session.
