CORONA VIRUS/COVID-19 Updates 30/6/20

With Parts of Leicester going on lockdown again this is the latest advice as we understand it so far regarding fishing at our venues.

As all of the Broome AS fishing venue's are situated outside the lockdown area they will remain open, subject to the previous Covid-19 social distancing rules.

 The government has stated that within the lockdown area; essential travel only is allowed. So as far as we can tell this means that if you live in the restricted area you will not be allowed to travel to our venue's for fishing until further notice.

However if you live outside the restricted area you may travel to and fish at our venue's

As the government have said they are putting the new rules into law you could be prosecuted if you are found to have broken the rules.

Lets hope that this lockdown will soon be over and all our members can get back on the banks soon.

CORONA VIRUS/COVID-19 Updates 26/5/20

We have had an update, from the Angling Trust, on the rules regarding the Covid-19 lockdown after their discussions with the government. We have now been allowed to move into phase two of the re-opening of fishing. 

Competition fishing and therefore keepnets are to be allowed from today 26/5/20

Please remember that this is not yet a return to fishing as pre Covid-19 days. 

Our Governing body, The Angling Trust, has been campaigning for fishing to be one of the first activities to be allowed upon easing of the lockdown restrictions.

With that in mind anglers MUST follow the Angling Trust Guidelines, the main points being:

  • Sanitise your hands after touching gates, locks or any other surface that may have touched by others.  
  • Social distancing of at least 2 meters must be observed at all times.

These rules have been devised with the object of allowing us to continue fishing whilst trying to minimise the risk of being infected by this terrible virus that has already killed thousands.

We recommend that you read and familiarise yourself with the

 full Phase One and Phase 2 Guidelines from the Angling Trust, that can be read by clicking below

Phase 1 Individual Fishing Phase 2 Competition Fishing

Hand Sanitisation etc.

Broome A.S. is a member only society and we do not employ any staff so we are unable to "man" our gates. We are therefore relying on members using their common sense. If you arrive at one of our venue's and find there is not enough room to fish on the lake that you had intended to then please use another of the lakes.

On the subject of hand sanitisation. As our gates are not manned you will need to provide your own hand sanitiser for your personal use. The gates must be locked as usual once you have entered the site.

If you feel ill or have any of the symptoms of Covid-19 then please stay at home and self isolate as instructed by the government.

Please do not abuse, or try to bend the rules and risk all of us being, once again, unable to enjoy our sport in these uncertain times. And more importantly we do not want to cause any increase in the infection rate.

ENJOY YOUR FISHING AND STAY SAFE

Lost and Found

 

Member Paul Hollis has retrieved a rod and reel from Lizzies Lake at Kilworth. If you have lost the items get in touch email webmaster@broomeanglingsociety.co.uk or ring Keith Macfarlane and we will try to reunite you with your kit.

 

On another note, the sunglasses that were found on Colver a couple of weeks ago have now been claimed.

Draining of Admirals

 

At last we have a bit of good news. The draining and fish retrieval at Admirals lake went very well with everything going to plan. Holes were dug into the partially drained lake for the water and the fish to move into after the weed was pulled back to allow a channel of water to feed the bore holes.

 

There were 31 Carp from 3-7lb, 100 small carp, around 2000 silvers including a Chub of 3lb+ and 4 Tench. Numerous Perch were netted including a couple around the 3lb mark and countless Gudgeon. All of these fish have been temporarily moved to Brian's lake.

 

Another good thing is that there were several new faces who took the time to come and help out, and it made all the difference. A big thank you goes out once again to everyone for their efforts, it is very much appreciated by the Membership.

 


 

 

Broome Matches

 

The scheduled Broome AS matches will continue as detailed in your membership books. They will be temporarily run by Paul Edwards who lives outside of the restricted area.

 

Please be aware though that you should only attend the matches if you live outside of the restricted area as the government has ruled that essential travel only is allowed within the restricted area.
