Club Policy on Wading

**CLUB STATEMENT**

Lymm Angling Club has reviewed the wading issue and from that review are instructing you the membership with the following.

1. We advise that all members wading to carry out a dynamic risk assessment prior to entering the water, to be aware of your surroundings and take responsible steps for your own safety.

**DYNAMIC RISK ASSESSMENT EXPLANATION**

Dynamic risk assessment is the practice of mentally observing, assessing and analysing an environment while we are fishing, to identify and remove risk. The process allows individuals to identify a hazard on the spot and make quick decisions in regards to their own safety.

2. You are advised to wear a wading belt, flotation life vest and have a wading crook/staff.

3. Read specific water rules, as wading is prohibited on certain waters under the lease agreement.

4. All members are advised not to wade on their own where possible.

Lymm Angling Club excludes all liability relating to wading on Club waters to the extent permitted by law. This does not exclude the Club’s liability for death or personal injury due to the Club’s negligence.

Regards

Lymm Angling Club
