1, The main gate must be locked and the bar put
over every time, the farmer has correctly complained about this several
times. The only time not to lock it
is if both gates are fully open and wedged open when they are obviously in use
for farm vehicles. Do not leave the
gate open for other anglers or guests to come in.
2, There are several signs
regards the power lines running across our site, please abide by these, i.e. set
up on the swims and not on top of the bank on pegs 1, 2 and 3 on the
syndicate. No fishing in between
pegs 8 and 9 on the day ticket lake etc.
3, No fish to be removed from the
fishery or transferred into the fishery.
4, All anglers must use a
suitable landing net and unhooking mat, for all species.
5, Swims must be
kept tidy at all times.
6, Your fishing zone is halfway between you and
the next angler, left and right and half way across if applicable.
litter to be removed from the premises, every last bit. Do not put in the trailer near the car
8, No child under the age of 16 years is allowed to fish without
9, No fires.
10, No barbecues.
noise nuisance, radios etc, radios to be turned down low.
unsociable or disruptive behaviour.
13, No dogs, as we share the lake
with a shooting syndicate.
14, No vegetation to be cut back, especially
reeds and trees.
15, No trespassing in
surrounding farmland or woods.
16, All anglers must be in possession of a
valid national rod-fishing license.
17, Proof will be required for
concessions. I.e. juniors disabled and OAP’s.
18, All vehicles must not
exceed 10 mph throughout the estate.
19, All vehicles to be parked only
in the fishing car park or on the track as close to the car park as an overflow
if the car park is full.
20, Strictly no vehicles on any grass, keep to
the track and car park. Parked or driven. No driving to swims on either
21, All vehicle activity to be kept to a minimum after 10 pm.
22, There have been two instances
of people shitting on the side of the lake, we will not tolerate this at
all. This is not allowed, use the
toilet provided or a bucket and thick plastic bag and take it home with
1, Please handle all fish as
little as possible.
2, If there is another angler
near you ask for assistance, 2 pairs of hands are better than one.
3, As you land a fish have a look
at it in the net and make your mind up if you want a picture. If you do leave it in the net in the
water so it can have a breather and make sure everything is ready before
bringing it onto the bank, ask your friend or neighbour to help look after the
fish and take the pictures.
4, Make sure the un-hooking mat
is wet and on even ground, also wet your weigh sling and zero your scales
ready. Check your camera has good
batteries and everything is ready for the fish.
5, Carry the fish as carefully as
possible, checking all fins are tucked in nice to the un-hooking mat, un-hook
the fish and lift it out of the net, always over the un-hooking mat and get the
landing net out of the way. Mesh is
more abrasive to the fish and protective slime than waterproof solid cloth or
material. I really don’t like the
sling retainer; half mesh half cloth things and prefer to see them weighed in
cloth only slings.
6, Take your pictures, have a
quick look on the camera to see you have some good ones and then place the fish
in the weigh sling for weighing before returning the fish to the water, using
the weigh sling to safely carry the fish.
7, This method gives the fish a
breather after the fight, entails less handling (weighing a fish, then
photographing the fish and then putting it back in the weigh sling is double
handling) and in all means less time on the bank for the fish.
8, If you see any cuts, or sores
on any fish please treat the area with a good ointment type product, we prefer
Nash Medicarp as it creates a protective seal over the wound to keep out further
infection and reduce the spread of infection to other fish.
9, If you haven’t got any fish
care products please look into purchasing some, every fish you catch other
people would like to catch in perfect condition.
Lots of anglers comment how nice
our fish are, we look to you to keep it that way and we really appreciate your
efforts with this.
Same rules as the day ticket lake
in general with the addition of boat use.
1, No pulling for a break or
excessive pressure on hooked and weeded fish, use a boat and get over the
fish. Our fish have good mouths and
are in good nick, I don’t want them to end up like they do on other weedy
2, Anglers need to have their own
life jackets and oars
3, Life jacket must be worn at
all times when using the boat, if this is not adhered to it is an offence that
will lead to a ban, boat insurance is to easy to loose.
4, Boats must be returned to the
appointed stakes and locked up after use.
5, Do not leave oars near the
boats after use; we can not risk anyone that is not a member using the
6, Members only are covered by
insurance for boat use with life jackets worn, guests are not so no guests to
use a boat under any circumstance.
7, All carp less than 20 pound to
be put in the stock pond, all tench under 6 pound to be put into the day ticket
lake or stock pond.
8, Set up on the swims and not on
top of the bank on pegs 1, 2 and 3 on the syndicate due to close proximity of
the live cables.
9, Only fish on the swims around
the rest of the syndicate lake, no bivvy-ing up in between the assigned swims,
you can put rods down the bank but your bivvy needs to be in the pegged
10, Minimum breaking strain reel
line is 15lb as there have been several fish losses leaving fish trailing
line. Please check your line and
11, Lead core and leaders are
allowed but if there is many more losses the individuals will be stopped from
using them.Random spot checks
will be carried out 24 hours a day by the bailiffs. Any person found not abiding
by the rules will be asked to leave and banned by the
