I think the risk is pretty low TBF. You'd have tested negative on the way out, and unlikely to be unlucky enough to pick up the virus during a week's fishing, assuming you've been sensible with distancing, mask, hand sanitising, etc

Someone else has mentioned that before as it is unlikely you can stay at the lake if others are booked on and doubt you could then book accommodation once a positive test results been given

A question...
If you are at a French lake and have the required PCR test a couple of days before you come back to England- and that test then comes back Positive.... What is the position? Where do you then go to presumably quarantine for xx days? What is the cost?

I got back from a 2 week trip to the Marne Valley last Saturday, and my experience at Folkestone was similar to Gav's. I too had a valid & provable reason to travel, but they were less interested in that than the negative PCR test (this is a must have!). Same applied on the return journey, but getting a PCR test in France was relatively straight forward, and free. I got mine done at Chalons hospital. One thing I would add, and Gav might find this when he gets back, is that I have been contacted virtually every day by UK Gov Test & Trace. They're obviously very interested in people who have crossed borders!! I opted for the 2+8 day tests while quarantining for 10 days (I booked this while in France, as you need a unique reference number for the required Passenger Locator Form), and have 3 days left before I can hit the pub. A lot of ball-ache & additional expense for a fortnight's fishing, but well worth it for me. I Bagged a PB mirror at 74.10lbs on my second to last morning!!!

I didn't take any bait with me, opting to buy it at the lake - all 320kg's of it!!!!!

Presumably you will get a refund in that case? Then have a look elsewhere?

Sorry, we were allowed lateral flow tests back at Christmas but I still wouldnít go on the words of the people making money out of it, be sure to double check.

Thereís a list of tests accepted by the French, itís three A4 sheets, and the test listed first is the one the NHS use. The Eurotunnel woman still said it wasnít allowed.

When I came across at Christmas I had an NHS certificate so I was reluctant to shell out for another. I rang the NHS COVID helpline and itís not that their test isnít accepted, itís that they havenít got the manpower to provide it. The very helpful NHS lady gave me all her contact details and a reference no. for the very unhelpful Eurotunnel woman. She wasnít interested in the slightest, a money making scam IMHO.
My wife and I came through with no probs at all.

Brilliant - I personally don't want to risk it but that's great.

Although this would make much more sense and would prevent people being ripped off by all these crap random testing companies, unfortunately border forces will not accept the NHS test.

https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/testing/get-tested-for-coronavirus/

Specifically says...

"If you're travelling abroad, you may need to get a test before you travel. You need to pay for a test privately and should not get a free test from the NHS."

But thanks for flagging it - hopefully soon it will change.

One more tip if you are going soon - try and book your day 2 and 8 tests BEFORE you leave the UK so you don't have any problems completing your passenger locator form before you return - you need the reference number from the pcr test supplier. You can't use NHS testing - they won't accept the result.
