Regulations

Whilst every effort is made to accommodate your wishes we ask you to abide by our Rules & Regulations so all can enjoy their time here.


Fishing Times
Please adhere to the time limit for your ticket. Overruns will be charged at the standard rate of half a day.


Fish Limit
This limit is per rod. All caught fish count and no fish may be returned to the pond unless you have a 'Catch & Release' ticket.

Once your limit is reached then you need to take your rod out of the water or purchase an additional ticket for more time.
Any fish caught over your limit will be charged on a per lb basis.


Bait & Tackle
Any bait purchased from us can be used. We stock reasonably priced live baits and Power Bait in our shop.

The following are not permitted:
  • Ground baiting (we have no coarse fishing facilities)
  • Sweetcorn
  • Cooked food
  • Spinning lures
  • Treble hooks
  • Barbed hooks (on catch-and-release ticket)

Litter & Discarded Tackle
Please be mindful of the environment. Discarded line, litter and hooks can cause injury to humans and to wildlife.

Anyone found littering will be asked to leave the fishery.


Treatment of fish
Once hooked please enjoy the fight and dispatch the fish in a timely manner to reduce its stress. On a catch-and-release ticket fish should not be over played, they should be returned as quickly as possible.

Gutting
No preparation or cooking of fish is allowed on site.

A full list of rules and regulations is available at the fishery and can be provided on request.
