Covid-19 Guidance

Fishing safely – Please adhere to these new fishery rules based on guidance from the Angling Trust

Anglers must follow current Government guidance on travel for the benefit of recreational activity.

Do not share transport unless residing in the same household

Angling to be undertaken on a solitary basis

At least 2m social distancing must be maintained at all times.

Anglers to fish on their own in established swims unless sharing a swim with a member of the same household.

Do not approach other anglers just for ‘for a chat’.

Take care passing on narrow tracks around the waters. Please use your common sense and show courtesy to other anglers

Keep to the 72 hour night maximum fishing limit – do less nights and give other anglers a chance to fish.

Do not reserve swims for other anglers.

Use gloves or antibac wipes after handling locks and gates.
Use antibac wipes before and after using club toilets – night anglers preferably use your own facilities.

No sharing of fishing tackle or any other items e.g. bait boxes

No unofficial competition fishing. 

If requested to produce your membership card by a KDAA Bailiff do so by maintaining social distancing.  Place your card on a bag or the ground and then walk away at least 2m.

Members will obviously be fishing at their own risk. You are responsible for your own safety and the safety of fellow club members.

Anyone displaying symptoms of COVID-19 or who shares a household with any individual displaying symptoms should not go fishing and continue to follow Government advice on isolation.

Angling Trust guidelines

Please adhere to these rules. We must prevent the virus increasing again and causing further lockdowns.

Do not jeopardise our fishing by breaking these rules.

Keep safe.
