RADAC Safety Statement
Safety and Risk Management
It is a requirement of fishing on RADAC waters that anglers read and accept this safety
and risk management policy
. All anglers should be aware of the risks they face on the Club’s waters . These include an assessment of the following :-
Paths and Banks - These may be uneven , unstable and slippery
Drowning - The river is inherently dangerous with deep and fast – flowing stretches.
Buoyancy aids are recommended .
Walls and Fences - Dry stone walls and Fences should be crossed at approved access points
using stiles and gates .Walls are often unstable and should not be
climbed and fences may contain barbed wire .
Wading - The river bottom is very uneven, rocky and slippery with algae on stones.
A wading staff is recommended and also a buoyancy aid .
River level can rise rapidly and unpredictably .
Power Lines - Avoid fishing in the vicinity of power cables . Carbon fibre fishing rods
are very efficient conductors of electricity and even when not actually
touching the cable a fatal shock may occur .
Casting - Anglers must show full consideration to others on the riverbank . Public
footpaths pass alongside many of our fishing waters so passers-by must
be expected and avoided when casting .
It is recommended that protective eyewear and headgear is worn when
fishing . Weighted flies especially should be cast with caution .
Animals - All farm animals can occasionally be dangerous and should be avoided,
especially when accompanied by their young .
Weils Disease - This is widely found in river water . Never put wet line or other wet
tackle in your mouth.
Anglers should fish with a companion whenever possible or if alone leave details of
itinerary and expected time of return with someone .
The Club accepts no liability for any damage or injury that anglers cause or suffer to
themselves , others or property and they must have insurance for such eventualities .
