For many people fishing is their only form of exercise, it is good for both their physical and mental well-being. It is also a solitary activity in which you naturally socially distance in an outdoor space on individual pegs. If it is allowed for 2 people from different households to meet up outside to exercise then I believe it is wrong to stop 1 person from going fishing on their own. Some people need the time away whilst fishing to escape family/work pressures for the well being of their mental health especially now with the rise in adult suicides being more important than ever. I fully agree with no match fishing as that is a group event but please support me in allowing solo anglers to remain at the bank side.
