Outings – COVID 19 Update.
Due to the recent government lock down, fisheries continue to close. At present the Committee have been advised that Bangour Reservoir, Glencorse Reservoir and Linlithgow Loch have now shut for the foreseeable future. All proposed outings to these fisheries are now cancelled. We will continue to review the situation and update members as soon as the situation clarifies.
Given the uncertainty NO Outings cheques from members will be lodged for April and probably for May as well. Unfortunately cheques dated for March 2020 have been banked. Refunds will be issued to those members affected in due course.
The Angling Trust has today issued advice that “Fishing” does not come under the Government’s definition of “Exercise” for an individual. We therefore ask all members to not fish the Avon until the Government clarifies their current advice. This is unlikely to happen before Easter.
