WADAA fisheries closed!

WADAA fisheries CLOSED!!!!!

As an organisation, we are supporting Government advice. In line with many other fisheries, with immediate effect, all WADAA waters are closed to members and day visitors until further notice. Our Bailiff supported by Directors will be monitoring the waters and compliance with this closure. Anyone found to be ignoring the closure and fishing any of the waters will be asked to immediately surrender their membership card and their details notified to the Board. The Board in these instances may cancel membership with immediate effect with no refund of membership fees due to an act of gross misconduct by the member.

We are sorry if any member disagrees with the necessity of this action. This decision has not been taken lightly and only after careful consideration of the Prime Minister and other Professional Specialists guidance. I am confident all members are fully aware of the seriousness of the situation we and the whole country find ourselves in. I am also sure members will accept, support and follow the difficult decision the Board has had to make. We will continue to monitor the situation and rest assured will look to reopen our waters as soon as it is safe to do so. Until then please follow these instructions.

Our best wishes

The Board of Directors, WADAA
