Sensible Angling Behaviour

All personal nets (landing or keepnets) must be completely submerged in any of the disinfectant bins provided, for at least 10 minutes, before commencing fishing. Please dip your nets into a bin before doing anything else, that way they get thoroughly disinfected while you’re unpacking the rest of your gear. Finally, collect it on the way down to your peg - easy peasy!

  • Fishing Times are from Sunrise to Sunset. Please don’t ring the bell before 8am - just go fishing, and we will catch up with you when we do our daily walk around the lakes.
  • Keep nets are not allowed unless used in a permitted match.
  • Barbless Hooks only please for Coarse Fishing and when Game fishing – any angler caught using barbed hooks, on any Coarse Lake or while Game Fishing, is likely to be barred!
  • For Coarse Fishing the maximum hook size is a size 6 barbless hook.
  • A Landing net must be used when landing any fish, no matter how small.
  • An un-hooking mat should be used for all Carp.
