One question that has arisen from anglers and businesses that cater to fishermen is how compliance with the guidelines for dealing with the coronavirus will affect those involved with fishing.

There is little doubt that fishing-related businesses will be affected as a result of the number of people in self-isolation and others who abide by the guidelines and limit their travel.
