Bressols. Resumption of fishing with shock measures!
For the past two months, fishing rods have been judiciously lined up in garages or stored in closets. This week marks a great deliverance for the many fishermen of Bresse on the occasion of the opening of the carnivore, the fishing shops have reopened their stores, these shops selling new and second-hand fishing equipment. These nature lovers all hope to be able to once again practice their passion for this spring which invites you to explore the banks of our rivers.
In Bressols, it will essentially be on the banks of the Tarn, as Michel Carol, the president of the Pêcheur Bressolais, points out: “All the enthusiasts will be able to fish all along the banks of the Tarn in Bressols, with the perfectly equipped fishing posts, but also further as far as Montauban,” Michel Carol points out.This year, of course, the president is well aware that this opening is taking place in an unprecedented context: “The federation has put into practice a whole set of gestures to be respected in order to combat the spread of the virus.” Patience and a sense of responsibility are inevitable prospects: “I ask all anglers to take precautions and respect the barrier gestures specified by the federation.”
Fishing alone, so social distancing is always necessary, even for fishermen. Each fisherman should be three metres away from his neighbour and should only use his own fishing equipment,” continues the president. Then there’s the mask, also recommended: “It will be necessary, especially in the case of a card check.” Finally, all fishermen should use hydroalcoholic gel.
When fishing by boat, no more than two fishermen must be on board.
The president hopes that all these recommendations will be respected, even in the case of carp fishing allowed at night, because many fishermen should be getting some fresh air this week: “Retired people essentially, because many are going back to work.” For some, even a bad day of fishing will always be better than a day confined to the house.
