**Fishery Covid Update**

**Fishery Covid Update**


As it stands there is still some uncertainty about whether sports fisheries can remain open after the close of business on Thursday 5th Nov. Based on this uncertainty, from Friday 6th Nov we will be operating the complex as a day-only fishery (no night fishing), this will be until further notice or the end of lock-down.
There is still a chance that regulations could be changed through parliament tomorrow, either allowing fishing as normal or stopping fishing altogether - we will react to any change as required.
Either way, the Fishery Tackle Shop will remain open on a click and collect basis with orders being taken over the phone and collected or orders taken at the door. Unfortunately you will not be allowed into the store from Friday.
All day ticket waters except Oxlease and Hunts Corner will remain open and we will still continue with our resting period on Brasenose-One, starting on Monday the 9th of Nov.
The Guy Lakes Syndicate will also be open on a day-only basis.
The government advice is for local travel only - so please refer to current government restrictions before travelling. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/new-national-restrictions-from-5-november
This is obviously not a decision we wish to take and we can only apologize for restricting fishing at this time.
Thank you for taking the time to read this statement – Stay safe and let’s get through the next month and hope we can all get back to some sort of normality in December.
(Please Note - for any group that has a booking during the lockdown period, the group organiser will be contacted via email tomorrow but unfortunately it does look unlikely that these will be able to be rescheduled).

**Fishery Covid Update**
We have had numerous emails, phone calls and messages today relating to the latest Angling Trust interpretation of the Government Rules/Guidelines.
We are fully aware that there does seem to be a possibility of night fishing being allowed. However - this does depend fully on anglers taking it upon themselves to only fish locally.
So to avoid the temptation and help show that angling can act in a responsible manner, there will be no change to our decision to just issue day-only tickets for the next month.
So from the 5th of November, we will be limiting the fishery to day-only tickets until the end of the lockdown (no night fishing). Our tackle shop will be open on a click and collect or order at the door basis. Oxlease and Hunts Corner Lakes will be temporarily closed. The fishery gates will be opened around 7am and locked at 6pm each evening. You will not be allowed to sleep in your car, anywhere on site, to save coming back the following morning - you will be moved on if this happens.
Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause but it’s only for a month and much better than what we had during the original lockdown.
You can still go fishing and with a bit of luck there will be other waters, closer to your home, where you can still get out to and do the odd night.
I hope you can understand and respect our decision as we believe it’s the correct thing to do under the current circumstances. Rest assured that we will revert back to normal service as soon as the lockdown finishes.
All the best and stay safe.

**Covid Announcement**

For all those anglers sending us private messages asking if we will shut next week, the simple answer is we don't know and can't possibly know at this moment. The Government hasn't made an announcement yet, so we don't know!
We will wait to see what the PM says and then make our decision accordingly, I would imagine we'll make an announcement late tomorrow or on Monday.
