Mike my lines arrived today, many thanks and to concur with Euan, roll on the 28th. I still have a couple of predator lines to order so hopefully your stock will arrive soon.

 Euan,

She has just announced that there is not a five mile limit but that we should use our own judgement. So as long as there are not huge crowds all going to known beauty spots all should be okay. I am sure that their will not be huge swathes of people heading to where we want to go.  :z16

Well said Sir!

So Jimmy Crankie has said that there is a five mile limit on travel  for fishing, golf etc.

So the wording is " Permitted to travel short distances for outdoor leisure and exercise but to stay within a short distance of your local community ( broadly within 5 miles) and travel by walk, wheel and cycle where possible"

For a start the wording is shocking. What is ' by wheel' ? Who knows. Its not a bike as they is mentioned afterwards.

Also, define 'broadly'. I'd like to see the police enforce that for a start.

I will be using my common sense and staying within 30 mins of my home for my fishing .

Plus i'll be fishing lochs were either i dont ever see anyone else or where i can be out on my tube. I'll be using gloves to open gates etc etc to protect me and others

5 miles - what a joke. Like Euan says thousands of cyclists have been out doing hundreds of miles a week now for a couple of months but i'm not allowed to travel safely ( by car) to a loch 6 miles away from my house ?

I think i'll use my common sense as the SG clearly dont have any

So Jimmy Crankie has said that there is a five mile limit on travel  for fishing, golf etc. Does she not realise that cyclists have been doing 50 miles plus since lockdown began? Hell I have been doing 12 mile sprints on my bike.
The only fishing that is within 5 miles of me is the North Esk and it is so low that there are no salmon in it. There are some excellent trout that I have been watching on my daily exercise but the chances of being allowed to fish for them are small.  Even if I played golf the nearest course is 6 miles away. My nearest Tesco is 15 miles away and we go twice a week to Montrose. Never saw a soul on the beach yesterday and my dogs had a ball in the sea.
And still the cyclists fill the roads in groups that are clearly not the same family.
A pointless platitude from a pointless MP. Nae impressed.

No word for the ones that are shielding, I am nearing week 9 of a 12week lock down, unless I get definite word I will keep in, you lucky People, Derek Roxborough

Sounds like, there being no big changes in the next week or so, we will be back out in our local waters come May 28th.

See you there (from a few meters away!)  :z16
