Following the recommendations from the Prime Minister and Angling Trust WATERS ARE OPEN from Wednesday 13 May.
Where there is a public footpath ( Lido & Burrs), ensure that there is at least 3m for the public to pass you and 15m between pegs ( Angling Trust recommendation). At this moment in time we would expect anglers to be on the grassed areas on the Lido and Burrs.
We expect RAA members to respect the need to ensure both they and any members of the public remain safe at all times. You will need to have your current RAA permit for 2020 and EA licence with you and be prepared to show them to a bailiff or any member who shows you their permit. NO DAY TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE. This decision will continue to be reviewed by the club and be dependent on the attitude and behaviour of anglers. Permits are only available through the club website currently.
“Let angling be part of the solution not the problem in helping to defeat COVID-19”
