I will not be at all surprised if most of Europe is on the green list next month. Doubtless travel will come with testing and quarantine provisos. You may think this will be madness but the pressure is on, it just wouldn't surprise me.

Another one who thinks owning a fishery is all red wine and roses. Buy a lake, throw in some fish, sit back and take people's money. Haven't got a clue.

oh dear.

I think you missed the point entirely.

Never mind. Perhaps you were taken for a ride by a Fishery and are suffering from the misconceptions that they are allrolling around in euros every Friday night drinking Moet!

FYI. I have actually lost a deposit from a large fishery. The original booking was made in 2018 for April /May 2020. A fortnight 650. They were good enough to roll it forward an entire year, but obviously that's not possible either. Now I understand they have gone bust.My 60 gone with their business.
Do you think they went bust on purpose?

I doubt it. While I lost 650 deposit, they lost everything.

This has been a tough time for everyone . But again I ask you, could you afford to go 2 years without income?

The point of my post wasn't to ask people for sympathy for fishery owners, just a bit of empathy and understanding.

The fact that was missed by you, or misunderstood (being generous) demonstrates the inability for most people to see something from any other perspective other than their own (selfishness perhaps?) and explains an awful lot about why we are where we are.

Maybe we can all spend Thursday nights looking for your understanding of fellow man? I won't be joining in!

You know the reality of the Covid situation has been a downer both healthwise and financially for much of the population however it is a fact that the leisure industry as a whole has taken a huge financial hit over the last two years and included in that is fisheries, both UK and foreign. The fact that an odd fishery has been deemed to have acted unfairly to customers doesn't alter the fact that the vast majority have, and are, taking the financial hit of cancelled holidays with anglers being rescheduled for future dates. Consider for one moment that these days the majority of French commercial fisheries are family run rather than being large enterprises and the loss of almost 2 years income is not a small matter with both home and livelihood being put at risk. Bills are still significant and have to be paid, fish need feeding and maintenance continues. Non of us want a clap or praise but just a little understanding of the situation we find ourselves in.

Maybe we should clap for fishery owners then on a Thursday ,no fishing holiday is backed by ABTA ect and some of the hoodwinking that's going on by foreign fishery's is more than evident in non return of payments and so on ,and I'm not saying oldfella falls into this catagory nor do I know what fishery you run ,but to single out fishery owners as a point of concern and sorrow right now ,do me a favour

I don't blame you, but its the fisheries I feel sorry for.

They are going to go almost 2 years without any real income. They are not usually big companies but micro family businesses.

Imagine if you went 2 years without any income?

And they still need to feed the fish without anglers baits going in.

Being selfish, I dodged the bullet, narrowly missing out on buying a French Fishery in late 2019. God knows what would have happened if I had of been successful.

Maybe somebody up there was looking out for me!

But while we all complain about not getting out there, think of the guys who own the lakes.

Already cancelled my planned trip in September and moved it to 2023 as already got a trip planned next year. Can't see trips happening this year unfortunately.

If you keep an eye on the cases you can see how France is coping with the pandemic. Another 43k cases today . I think September isn't a bad guess for a fishing trip. Fingers crossed

Regardless of the traffic light system being banded about the MSM today with mid April mentioned ,let's ffs get real about this ,France our destination are a couple of days into a month lockdown,like us they will be eased out of it and then eased back into the next one lol ,also couple that with most seasonal holiday flights only resuming and bookable for the end of June all to coincide with a hopeful return for the school holiday weeks at best ,imho if you have something booked then the later in the year it is the better ,I certainly wouldn't book nowt what so ever going forward where deposits or up front payments are concerned , and if you've already paid a deposit I would pay the fishery not another penny until you can actually arrive if a deposit has been taken ,regardless of what they say or tell you ...you will not get your money back half as easily as you passed it there way ...so pays your money and takes your chances ,I've already written off my 2 trips this year .I will go if I can but know it ain't happening ,I'm booked to go next Friday lol and mid June into early July ,
