Pretty easy to get a PCR test at a local laboratory. My father had one. It's free in France. Not sure about charges for foreign visitors. They do a different test at most pharmacies for 20 euros and takes 20 minutes.

I wonder how it is going to work having to have a negative covid test to return to the UK after your trip. No doubt the test will have to be officially done so will require a trip somewhere to get one and the cost implications as someone will want paying for it. I'm out in September hopefully but who know's.

Have booked Meadow lake, part of Mirror pool group for June this year.

Hoping that the travel ban will be lifted by then and a covid test will be easier to access, as I expect we will still need negative tests for most of this year when travelling abroad.

Hi,
Has anyone got any update on the mount of bait you can take to France. For your own personal use.

Wonder how much delay they'll be at the ports now that every UK passport will need an entry and then exit stamp at passport control? Fridays and Saturdays could be interesting 😂

Travelling in a car with a few suitcases, holidaymakers won't see much of a change. Travelling in a van stocked up with boilies and food could very well be a different matter. There will now be a 20kg limit on bait and a prohibition on meat and dairy products - for bait containing meat/dairy or in unmarked bags I'm unsure where that will fall.

https://www.douane.gouv.fr/sites/default/files/2020-12/23/Brochure-voyageurs-Brexit-23122020.pdf

But of course much of how this will effect anglers travelling over will depend upon whether or not the Douane actually police these new rules and what the penalties will be if caught flouting them.

The 90/180 rule won't be a problem for anglers. Easy for an international driving permit, 5 quid at the post office. I can see them maybe having a similar set up at airports as they do with Switzerland. You'll notice at passport control it says EU and Swiss passports and then all others. Bit if luck it will be EU, Swiss and UK in future.

Your current EHIC card is valid until the expiry date on it . After that they are talking about a similar arrangement , the main difference being that it wonít cover pre existing conditions .
The 90 day limit isnít really a problem for 90 % of people who go to France etc.
Yes , we will have to que in a different line for passports etc but thatís not a major ..
I expect an International driving licence and vehicle green card will be the only real difference most people will notice .
I fish in France a fair bit ( just back a few days ago ) and I really donít think the situation is going to be a major ... Iíll let you know though as Iím hopefully heading back over on the 6th 😄
