    Understanding Carbon Trout Rods

    The trouble with fishing rods is there is no way to measure performance. Everything is subjective and depends upon the users tastes and requirements. There are no good and bad rods: there are rods I like and rods I don't. What I like others may not.

    FISHING NOW ALLOWED

    Perhaps I should have used shorter words. Angling does not spread c19.

    FISHING NOW ALLOWED

    It's never a good idea to make assumptions: you just end up looking even sillier. I can fish whenever I like without leaving home so none of this will have the slightest effect on what I want to do. I suspect you know this, I've said it enough times on these threads, and are just trying to make...

    FISHING NOW ALLOWED

    It's not anglers breaking the rules that has caused the spread of the virus but idiots who can't wash their hands and stay 2 meters away from others. Why should people go fishing if they want too?

    Tier 5 ... presumably fishing is screwed again?

    The lockdown starts tomorrow and people, quite rightly, want clarity on whether they can fish or not. Your suggestion ( ?!) was premature. No one is looking for loopholes and yes I am stressed about fishing because that's how I make my living. I don't get government grants, or furlough or any of...

    Tier 5 ... presumably fishing is screwed again?

    That appears to be the prevailing view from what I can see. I must have failed to refresh my page properly this morning if that's true. So what about angling then?

    Tier 5 ... presumably fishing is screwed again?

    So they have now, but they hadn't at 10 am. They still haven't clarified angling as excercise. As it stands angling is still permitted exercise, as defined by the last lockdown and that is the point that needs to be clarified. Can you clarify that?

    Tier 5 ... presumably fishing is screwed again?

    That I would agree with. Which is why, if you read the thread, I posted my initial response.

    The government hasn't published details yet so where have you found them?

    Tier 5 ... presumably fishing is screwed again?

    My missus is having a huge delivery tomorrow from Aldi, (other supermarkets are available). I think it's pretty easy to get a drink still.

    Tier 5 ... presumably fishing is screwed again?

    If you are worried about that then ban alcohol sales. Many, many times more injuries and accidents are caused by alcohol. No? Too inconvenient maybe? the AT don't own the guidelines but they are meeting ministers this morning to clarify the position and have a convenient website on which to...

    Tier 5 ... presumably fishing is screwed again?

    The AT will publish guidelines. We don't even know whether angling will be allowed yet. If people followed the guidelines we would have got rid of c 19 by July. They didn't and they don't, but it remains the case that angling is not going to spread the virus.

    Tier 5 ... presumably fishing is screwed again?

    They say no non essential travel except for permitted purposes. Angling was a permitted purpose in the last lockdown, hence the question whether it is now.

    Tier 5 ... presumably fishing is screwed again?

    I don't know why you think anyone is looking for loopholes, I suggest you try reading the thread before spouting virtue signalling moronic nonsense. what people want, and need, is clarity. What is and isn't allowed. In March leaving home to fish was not allowed, in November it was. The jury is...

    Tier 5 ... presumably fishing is screwed again?

    That was all the case in November. I can't access the AT website, probably for obvious reasons, but I guess we will get clarity tonight or tomorrow. It will be interesting to see if anyone turns up to fish here tomorrow.
