IMPORTANT MEMBERSHIP UPDATE
COVID 19: COROVIRUS
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
Advice to Wimborne and District Angling Club Members on the Commencement of Angling
during the Covid-19 pandemic
Before the Prime Minister spoke to the Nation the Club Committee published a revised set of guidelines to facilitate fishing during the Covid-19 pandemic. The response from the Membership was positive, but gave rise to a number of questions which, in some cases have been answered directly, but some are of general interest. There have also been a number of requests to confirm that fishing is now to go ahead on Club waters from Wednesday 13 May 2020. Last the Club needs to make some minor amendments to the additional rules not least because the Government has scrapped the local travel directive. Below, therefore, are some clarifications, which are considered to be of general interest followed by revised advice and guidelines. This information supersedes that of the 9 May 2020 .
We're pleased to announce WDAC waters (those unaffected by the close season) will reopen on a limited basis as of Wednesday 12th May
Members will be permitted to fish one hour before sunrise and must vacate our venues by 8.30pm. This temporary rule will be reviewed and reverted to normal as soon as possible.
Members are reminded that guest tickets are unavailable during the re-introductory phase of our return to angling.
The Club has recently inspected the lakes at Rawlsbury. Access to stock these lakes or to fish them is presently impossible. The constant rain through the winter means that the field next to Chapmans Lake is waterlogged and vehicles are unable to drive in or out.
The Club is in contact with the farm manager and regular inspections will take place. As soon as we are able to stock the lake we will inform members and open the lakes for fishing.
WDAC were honoured to host a Band Of Brothers at Kingsbridge, with the event kindly hosted by Chris Yates, Rob Hughes and Hugh Miles
