Wet and mild here now though by the looks of it and we haven’t got room for anymore rain yet
yes plenty of people on canal last time i went walking around also bikes only went to use up some pinkies if allowed would try somewhere with deeper water though different canalI'm not in a rush to get on a frozen canal. Especially a busy canal where nobody wears masks 🖐️
When we could fish during last lockdowns two clubs I am in required you to carry hand sanitizer, latex gloves, tissues and a couple of carrier bags to keep them in. Failure to do so means suspension from the club.I think that they should be representing the whole nation, and especially the NHS, slightly higher in priority than going fishing, I would think.
Wearing masks, sanitizing, and keeping a distance, minimizes the risk of infection, but there are a lot of people that won't do it. What makes you believe that anglers as a whole would keep to any restrictions that applied? Plenty didn't the last time, why would this be any different?
Something I think about now and again when I look at my list of 6 out patient clinics which I haven't been able to attend for check ups/reviews. Did manage one by telephone which partially helped, but, understandably Covid has to be dealt with and all other issues set aside for the time being. Just wonder how long that is as my best mate who I've known since 1973 has just passed away with bowel cancer, treatment of which like everything else had been put on hold or delayed due to Covid. I spoke to him a week ago and he knew he was in trouble. Fortunately his wife and son were at his bedside in Farnborough (kent) when he passed just on the day before tier5 came into effect else they would not have been able to be with him, and he with them at the lastFor me it will make no difference if they allow fishing or not, as safe and as rule abiding as it may be, I will stay at home, the pandemic needs to be slowed down. Any risk, however small, is a risk not worth taking as I rely on the NHS for other factors for my health and a broken NHS will be a bigger issue for me further down the line. I am not going to preach to anyone who does go if they allow fishing, just stay safe and the quicker the pandemic is beaten the quicker all things can return to normal. Just my twopenneth.
Sounds the same as me and 300 others all driving to the factory where we work, but we still do itSo your in a club.
You live seven miles away in a village.
Ted lives in next village along and hes a bus driver.
Mary in same village as him, she works in a supermarket.
Simon lives twenty miles away in a big town in a block of flats.
Sue and Mark are a retired couple who live in a retirement complex.
You all turn up to fish one Sunday, a few hours in one of you has a serious accident.
Every one rushes round to help.
One of you has covid without symptoms and coughs a few times whilst all in a group.
By Thursday theres an out break in the retirement complex and a block of flats.
Mark is in intensive care. Unfortunately Sue didnt make it.
X amount of bus commuters are now spreading the virus themselves.
You didnt know you had the virus, its not your fault Sues dead and alot of old people or vunerable people are very ill is it?
PS , you caught 2lb.3oz of bits.
I don't understand why people can't see the difference between going to work and going fishing, most people have to go to work you don't have to go fishing. My sister works in a supermarket she is an age group where it could be serious if she caught it, she doesn't want to go but needs the money. I think we should all do what we can to reduce the spread of virus so that the level of risk is reduced for those that have to work.Sounds the same as me and 300 others all driving to the factory where we work, but we still do it
I didn't know that was the reason you were wearing those gloves.. I assumed you wore latex all the time, and didn't want to pry..When we could fish during last lockdowns two clubs I am in required you to carry hand sanitizer, latex gloves, tissues and a couple of carrier bags to keep them in. Failure to do so means suspension from the club.
