“I was happy to be involved with the Angling Trust to help produce these guidelines to
ensure that lure fishing events can be held in a safe, professional and friendly
manner during these difficult times.”

Lots of our members really enjoy competition lure fishing. They would like to get back
to it, but want to fish in a way that’s safe for them and for all towpath users. I was
really pleased to help the Angling Trust put together the guidelines that will get us
back to match fishing safely in these difficult times.
