With the announcement from The Angling Trust today, we are pleased to say that we will start our open matches again on a Thursday & Saturday. The first match will be held on Big Beam on Thursday and the price is £15 all in. Fishing takes place from 10am - 4pm.
As ever, there are going to have to be some new temporary rules to enable us to run the matches safely for us and everyone taking part.
Firstly, we ask that you arrive by 8.30am on the day of the match. Please drive down to the match pool (Big Beam on Thursday) and REMAIN IN YOUR CAR. Chris will then call you over, one at a time, to pay your match fee (preferably by contactless card payment) and he will draw your peg from the bag, in front of you. You should then get your tackle and go straight to your peg. Please stick to the social distancing rules.
At the end of the match, please remain at your peg until Chris arrives to weigh your catch. After this, please pack your belongings into your car. No one is allowed to follow the scales and there should be no congregating at the end of the match. Chris will announce the winners and the results will be on Facebook.
This is new to us all, please bear with us, as there will undoubtedly be hiccups. Our aim is to proceed according to the Angling Trust guidelines and to ensure that we do not breach the Government's rules on organised gatherings. Thanks.
