Our advice on the current health situation Some large events of over 100 people are being cancelled nationwide but as it stands there is currently no reason to close our lakes due to the type and style of sporting activity that we offer. All of our fishing swims are at least three metres apart and fishing is an ideal sole activity with low risk. You really can’t beat the fresh air, lovely scenery, time to relax and unwind.
