Errrrrrrr me Lee. And ... again me. Our local canal is deserted. Odd dog walker but, that’s about all. I’d rather be sat in the middle of nowhere watching and listening to nature than be stuck at home.How many actually sit in the middle of nowhere though and how can you guarantee there will be no others around them?
First bit of bad weather and most anglers won't bother going this time of year anyway.
Golf is a completely different scenario to fishing so has little relevance in my book
???. I think me and you were separated at birth pal. ???I don't know about others Lee but I don't fish commercials these days. I can garuntree that the club lakes this time of year during the week will be dead. Plus I'm abit of an anti social beggar when I'm fishing so if by chance others were fishing I'd set up well away as per usual.
Not necessarily different no but looking at it objectively one requires a facility and usually another person and one is usually solitary and often uses natural resources. Golf courses are private and can be closed whereas rivers, public lakes and the sea will be open to walkers, runners, cyclists, picnickers etc so would be a bit odd to outlaw anglers using such resources as well.It's not necessarily much different to fishing. I have a relative who goes golfing, and he asks: "What;s the difference between me having a friend round to my house all day and going golfing with that friend?" He says Social Distancing is not difficult in both instances. and the club house will be closed anyway.
The government that not so long ago were dipping freely into public purses and making it up as expense claims!, Renting various properties in questionable circumstances, the list goes on I'm sure, forgive me for not having an iota of trust or faith in the government. Keep it simple in your own mind, sat on a peg obviously alone there is no threat whatsoever.Its not dangerous playing.golf either but govt say.no.golf
