Draycote, Eyebrook & Thornton Coronavirus Update 30th March 2020
It’s a week since the trout fisheries closed in line with the government directive, and I will be the first to admit it’s been a bit of a stressful time as we quickly had to prepare the fisheries for the closure.
Anglers were lucky that social media is flooded with fly tying, fishing video & blogs to help us while away the enforced home time.
We will be posting items on our website & social media, if you have any photos or video of your fishing trips to any of our fisheries, if you can share them it would be great, if you can forward them to firstname.lastname@example.org we can add them to our library and post them during the next few weeks
Members, once I know the duration of the lockdown, I will be looking at some form of compensation for the period were closed.
Vouchers purchased will be valid to be used when we reopen later this year & will be valid to be used during 2021 for those who can’t use them this year
Tom Bird is currently preparing one of his excellent blogs with Martin Blakeston putting together a piece on the history of the Blackston buzzer
When up at the fisheries its noticeable that the buzzer hatches are improving with increasing numbers of martins travelling through each day. Spring is here
Thank you for your well wishes, everyone keep safe
