20 July 2020Coronavirus Update - Loch Eye
Coronavirus Update: The Loch Eye proprietors have decided not to allow fishing on Loch Eye for the 2020 season due to the Coronavirus pandemic. We are therefore, regrettably, unable to let out our boats this season.
17 April 2020Coronavirus Pandemic - 'Stay at Home' Extension
The UK Government yesterday announced an extension to the 'Stay at Home' directive for a further 3 weeks, until 8th May. This means that there will be no fishing allowed in the UK until that date at the earliest, when we would expect another decision.
Although we remain optimistic, it is highly unlikely that we will be in a position to offer any guided fishing trips until June at the earliest.
24 March 2020Coronavirus Pandemic - 'Stay at Home' Directive
Effective 24th March 2020 the UK Government announced non-essential workers should stay at home for a 3 week period. This means that there is no fishing allowed in the UK until 14th April 2020. We are therefore unable to deliver any guided fishing trips during this period.
Any client who has booked a fishing experience or trip during this period will be offered alternative arrangements.
21 March 2020Coronavirus Pandemic - Social Distancing
The UK government has introduced new measures to limit people’s sustained social contact including the closure of entertainment, hospitality and indoor leisure premises across the country. A minimum of 2m separation is required for all public interaction. Their aim is to limit the spread of the virus by preventing the gathering of groups of people at events and/or locations and to reinforce “social distancing”.
With rigorous risk management measures in place (no sharing of rods, wearing of gloves, no inside activities, no provision of food & beverages, 2m separation, hand sanitiser gel facilities etc), we believe we can continue to offer our services on a 1:1 or 1:2 guest basis. We are unable however to offer experiences or events for groups of more than 2 people per guide until these restrictions are lifted, subject to fishing venues being open.
Any client who has booked fishing for a group during the period that these restrictions are in place will be offered alternate arrangements.
