Yes Terry Englandshire is a different kettle of fish, I am shielding according to my letter from Scot Gov. so I have to stay at home, for my safety and for the safety of others, it's a Bummer but then I am no medical expert, so I have to take the advice of those who are supposed to know, I wish to live so I will look at MSM and any other news I can get, the Care Home at Portree is a case in point, how can the owner bring workers from 600 miles away ?and end up with 9 deaths now, we all have to take care, me even more so.

I am as desperate as anyone to go fishing especially as I do not see anyone most days but if fishing is allowed then so is golf etc. If we all stick to the rules it would be ok.
Keep hearing about the deaths in care homes. [a few years ago they were called granny farms remember.] When I leave this house it will either be in a box or to a care home. Gods waiting rooms. Relatives not being able to go to funerals is sad but when I hear of some one who has died at 93 to me that is a good innings.

Whether I agree or disagree with the conditions of lockdown is of no consequence whatsoever. It is what it is and I will follow the instructions regardless. However as soon as we get the green light to go for a cast I will be in some remote location with no danger of breaking social distancing rules and be happy as a pig amongst s””t.

Tight lines to all whenever it happens.

Scottish lockdown could be eased from 28th May with more outdoor activities allowed.

More details coming later this week.

Here’s hoping.

so to fish a hill loch miles from anywhere and with nobody within miles we need to wait another could of weeks ? Gads....

I can understand why say salmon rivers advertised globally ( on fishpal) need restrictions in place to stop people travelling hundreds of miles for a cast but no reason they cannot open lochs and rivers to local residents immediately.

Basically Sturgeon is setting out a carbon copy of what is being done in England currently - that she was  complaining so bitterly about only last week .....So much for not wanting to score political points... :X1

I've watched the various responses from the different governments regarding the easing of restrictions to fishing.  England have unlimited travel, Wales are under lockdownn with limited travel & as far as I am aware, Scotland are doing the same. This virus is still out there & will most certainly be for quite some time, unless there's going to be a vaccine we shall always be under the threat of contacting the virus. Good luck to anyone who ventures forth.
Close to the edge down by the river.......... Yes.

Luck plays no part in this.

Common sense, strict hygiene measures, appropriate social distancing, and following informed expert advice do.

You are correct when you say that the virus is here to stay, and that any vaccine is a long way off. But as a population, we cannot stay locked up forever. And you cannot catch a coronavirus from thin air, hence the safe distancing advice.

Tight lines to everyone when the time comes that we can return (with an appropriate distance between us!) to the riverbank or loch - hopefully not long to wait now.

 Whilst I've been out practising and can hit 90' with my left hand, the 28th works fine for me as it would mean I'd have a chance of two working arms for playing fish 😂

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

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.

Living with deep, full breaths is the way of the trout. Fish, it seems, are the ultimate teachers in breathing.
