The Get Fishing Awards Our second 'Get Fishing Awards' event was held on Saturday 5th September and this time our team of bailiffs were joined by Dean Asplin from the Angling Trust.

With angling often being a solo sporting activity, we believe that when soft social distancing resumes, we will be able to reopen the fishery for solo anglers. What matters [...]
