News by Month



Angling Scotland Ltd continues to work with sportscotland and the Scottish Government to ensure that angling in all forms can continue safely as we move to a tiered structure of Covid-19 governance.  While is it hoped that this tiered approach will help to get the ‘R’ number back under control, recent increases in cases clearly demonstrate that we are not out of the woods yet and we remain on a pathway through and out of the pandemic.  There can therefore be no guarantee that more restrictions won’t be needed in the coming weeks and months.  Public health and well-being remains the most pressing priority and we all have a responsibility to do what we can to continue to suppress the spread of the virus. Therefore, we are still strongly encouraging individuals to only travel as far as is necessary to participate in angling activities.  All anglers are asked to follow the guidance in the same exemplary manner as they did earlier in the year and to date.If individuals feel in any doubt at all then please interpret the guidance within the spirit of the day and place personal safely and the safety of others as the over-riding priority.
