Though anglers will only be permitted to fish with one other person from outside their family or support ‘bubble’. The Government has insisted competitive match-fishing will be forbidden during lockdown following Tuesday’s discussions with the Angling Trust, the national governing body that represents all game, coarse and sea anglers and angling in England.
Anglers have been encouraged to “focus on their local beaches and fishing marks”, while freshwater anglers must avoid travelling hundreds of miles in search of fishing, with “common sense” and “acting within the spirit of the government’s advice” required, including the Rule of Two. Fishing tackle shops and all indoor and social facilities connected with the sport are still required to close from Thursday.
But the government’s decision will increase pressure from sports such as golf, tennis and archery, who have all appealed over the last week for a reprieve. The Angling Trust are set to publish full guidance following successful talks, but did not leave entirely satisfied after admitting the new rules are “more complicated than we had hoped”.
“It can take place, without time limits, within the provision allowing people to visit a public outdoor space. We believe this clearly includes riverbanks, towpaths, beaches and still-waters that can either be accessed freely or on the payment of a day ticket or subscription levied by the owner or leased to a publicly available fishing association.
“Fisheries are not on the published list of businesses that the government has ordered to close and there is no reason that they should do so providing that they operate in accordance with the rules.” The re-opening of bait shops and other outdoor activities comes after Minnesota Governor Tim Walz lifted some restrictions on his “Stay at Home” order on Friday.
“We're having a good day of business, Trout season opened up in the streams today, and I'm glad we have some customers doing that,” says Castro. Castro says business has been slow enough where social distancing hasn't been an issue, and he hopes things will start getting back to normal soon.
At the most, not counting holidays, I've only witnessed 3 employees at once here. The Angling Trust has already distributed guidance on fishing’s return and has told the estimated two million active anglers across the country that they now have a responsibility “to act as ambassadors” for their sport.
“If we fish safely we will continue to support the national effort to combat Covid-19 transmission while being able to enjoy our wonderful sport,” said Jamie Cook, the chief executive of the Angling Trust. The Angling Trust estimates that the sport is worth £4 billion annually to the UK economy and, just as cycling shops have remained open during the lockdown so that people can still buy and repair bikes and their components, they want that logic to extend to fishing tackle shops.

The Best Bait & Tackle Shop in Atlantic Beach | Chaitin' Tails Outdoors If you’re new to fishing or new to an area it’s imperative that you find a bait and tackle shop.
While it’s tempting to go to a big-box shop, you won’t get what I call a generational perspective of local conditions and trends. My favorite tackle shop is in North Fort Myers, this place is packed to the rafters with everything I need and has several generations of anglers behind the counter that once engaged, will gladly share their advice and pro-tips.
It may take a few trips to develop a rapport with the staff of any shop, so return several times, ask questions and don’t be shy. In Cape Coral is home to another no frills, all business kind of store that carries great chum, large selection of lures and like my favorite shop does rod and reel repair.
