Fishery Rules

Our desire is that all visiting anglers get the most from their stay and enjoy a day of good fishing, peace and tranquillity. To help us help you we ask for your care and consideration and that you respect some simple rules for the benefit of:

The Lake and the Fish
  1. No braided mainline or lead core to be used
  2. All fish weighing 1lb or over must be landed correctly with an appropriate net and NOT swung to hand
  3. Fixed rigs are to be made safe so as to allow any lost fish to be able to easily rid themselves of any terminal tackle
  4. Barbless and micro barbed hooks only may be used
  5. No artificial baits – please carefully consider your bait and ensure it is of the highest quality
  6. No bait boats
  7. No keep-nets except in matches or lessons
  8. All nets, mats, weigh-slings etc. brought onto the fishery must be dry before usage
Fellow Fishermen & Women
  1. No Dogs allowed on the fishery premises
  2. No playing of radio and/or recorded music, shouting or loud noises
  3. Use of mobile phones to be kept to a minimum
  4. No excessive use of alcohol
  5. No reserved pegs (except for matches)
  6. Any juniors (under 16) to be accompanied at all times by a responsible adult
  7. No visitors after dark – Last entry: 5pm (Nov-Feb: 12 noon)

The proprietors may at any time remove any individuals if they are considered to be responsible for a) Anti-social behaviour and/or b) Disturbing the peaceful enjoyment of other fellow fishermen and women

The Environment
  1. No fires, bar-b-q’s or bright lights
  2. No use of fire arms
  3. Fishing is only permitted from designated pegs – If pegs are out of use this is because either remedial work is being undertaken or for the protection of wildlife (e.g. birds nesting nearby)
  4. Keep to paths and peg areas – Please note that we manage all the grounds surrounding the lake to protect and enhance the local flora and fauna
  5. Responsible Removal of Litter – Please tidy up your peg before leaving and take home with you all your belongings and any items of litter from your stay (this includes line and cigarette ends)
