Apparently fishing has been recognised as an exercise and therefore fishing is being permitted during lockdown January 2021.

I can see it now.
Doctor: Do you excercise?
Patient: Yes, I fish all the time.

Yes, it's all in the link above but can't do it overnight or in another area that you are not local to.

Apparently the police have been down the Ant telling people they can't fish from boats as its unnecessary travel.

They are out that way today.
I was told the police were checking on people in Walcott walking along the beach.
At the end do the day, the government has failed miserably and now people are being treated like dogs in kennels hoping for someone to throw them a bone.
The police have a hell of a job to do in normal times and now getting them to fine people who are out for exercise is just crazy.
Why waste their time punishing people for a government who failed to listen to Italy and could have handled this matter in the first lockdown.
The government should not be getting the police to do this...the government would be better of giving the police a van full of vaccines and going around jabbing people's arms who are out and about.

It's like living on planet of the apes.

Apparently, the police were checking on people in the riverside houses up at Potter Heigham and did catch people who should not have been there.
I find people so selfish at times.
