In short – YES!

You may go fishing on your own or with 1 other person, and  travelling a short distance is deemed allowable for this purpose.
However please be aware of social distancing rules.

What is a short distance? 1mile? 5 miles? 10 miles?
The angling trust are seeking clarity?

Will tackle shops be allowed to open?
It seems that they may be allowed to operate a “Click and Collect” service, check with your local tackle shop.
