Please take time to read the following. If you do not want to abide by the rules, please do not come on site.
Please DO NOT come to the fishery if you live in an area that has been categorised as a VERY HIGH ALERT Area. If you have made a booking and your postcode is issued with this alert, please contact us to reschedule it for a date later in the year or for 2021.
Please DO NOT come on site if you are meant to be isolating. Your booked fishing session can be rescheduled for another time.
Anglers entering the site, MUST CLOSE THE FISHERY GATE. It will be unlocked from 7.30am to 7.30pm, however it’s really important to keep it closed by putting the chain on the hook provided. We do not want people accessing the fishery that haven’t booked on.
We will be limiting numbers of anglers on site so that people feel safe and can keep the 2 metre social distance rule.
A total of 8 anglers will be allowed on No.2 Lake at any one time and a total of 15 anglers on the bankside swims of the Day Ticket Lake, with the addition of the Island swim, peg 32 (nature reserve swim) and Peg 1A being booked.
Anyone wishing to fish (this includes if you have a season ticket on either lake) have to book. Please do not just turn up and expect to fish, you will not be allowed on site.
Only people fishing will be allowed on site, meaning no visitors and no looking around the lakes.
Please do not bring children on site unless they are booked to fish. They must be 11 years plus to fish and accompanied by an adult up to 16 years old.
You can book by:
or phoning us: 07753 853208 or 01603 872948.
Sessions will come on a first come first served basis.
Payment for sessions are to be paid in full in on booking. This can be done by paying by bank transfer (please let us know if you require bank details for this) or by credit/debit card over the phone. During the COVID pandemic we will not be accepting cash.
Bookings will be for sessions only and not for peg numbers/names. Please use your common sense when selecting a peg so that you keep your distance from people. We are lucky that the majority of swims are a good distance from one another, however please respect people’s space.
If you have to cancel your booking, we will offer you a credit and the chance to reschedule for an alternative date.
Another measure we would like you to take so that people do not have to be in someone’s ‘personal space’ is not to ‘marker up’ outside your swim i.e. not along paths. This gives people room to pass your swim without worrying about being close to an angler marking up.
Do not stand on pathways to socialise. Please respect people’s space and remember the 2 metre distance rule.
‘Double swims’ can be used by a single angler, by an adult and junior (aged 11 - 16) from the same household, two people from the same household or friends that keep the 2 metre distance between them .
Outside toilets will be open around the lakes. Please bring your own toilet roll to use. Please do not use wet wipes, industrial paper or kitchen roll, as they block the toilet. Please keep the toilet and toilet area clean and use the spray to put on the toilet seat, toilet handle and door handle after use. We will keep the toilets as clean as we can, however we require your input to keep the virus at bay.
There will be no bins around the lakes, so rubbish is to be disposed in the two large bins situated at the end of the drive to the entrance to the fishery. Please bag your litter up accordingly in a tied bag and do not chuck elsewhere on site.
High contact areas i.e. gate latches will be sprayed and disinfected on a regular basis by a member of staff. It would be a good idea for you to personally use a handsoap or sanitiser upon entry and when leaving the fishery.
Hand sanitiser is located near the gate that takes you to the lakes and inside the outdoor toilet area.
When dipping and rinsing your weighing equipment please use the 2 metre blue marker if there is someone in front of you using the tanks.
Please bring your own barrow as we will not be supplying the quad service or have barrows for you to borrow. We will not be taking people's trailers around with the quad either.
Indoor toilets, showers, café and shop will be closed until further notice.
If you have the island or nature reserve booked, we will leave it at your discretion to spray the lifejackets we provide with an anti-virus spray. Or you are welcome to bring and wear your own. However what ever you decide to do please ensure that you wear a lifejacket when you are in the boat.
Bait/tackle can be ordered with your booking. This is to be paid for in full and your order will be left outside the main building for collection.
These safety measures may change at short notice depending on the progression of the COVID-19 virus or on government advice.
