Let us be able to go coarse fishing

Petition Details

For fishermen to be able to go coarse fishing. This helps alot with and improves people's mental health as I experience myself. It is one of few sports that can be kept to government guidelines and socially distance. Fishing lakes could keep the guests to a minimal depending on the size of the lake.

Additional Information

Not only does this Improve on people's mental health issues but aswell it will keep coarse fish fed and looked after and lakes maintained. We're not asking to be able to travel miles out of the way, but just atleast locally to a lake, river or canal. I find myself that alot of the population will be for this rather than against this so please please take this into consideration. There will not be any harm in this.
