ATTENTION!

CHECK. CLEAN. DRY

CHECK your kit before you leave the lake, brush off any mud, weed etc. Leave it at the lake.

CLEAN your kit when you get home, pay attention to nets, mats, slings, waders and boots. Use hot water if possible.

DRY everything thoroughly, in direct sunlight if possible.

NEVER arrive at the lake with wet kit.

As with any fishery we do have a set of rules that are in place to keep you the angler, our fish and our venues, as safe as possible.

Common sense must be used at all time! Please familiarise yourselves with our rules before purchasing membership, as payment of membership fees is acknowledgement that each angler will abide by them at all times.

We have tried to keep the rules as simple as possible but if you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch with a bailiff or send us a message through the website or social media.

We expect all our members and their guests to exercise common sense and good angling etiquette at all times. A FULL LIST OF RULES WILL BE ISSUED UPON JOINING.

  • All nets, mats, slings and fish care equipment must be completely bone dry before being brought onto society venues. Drying your fish care equipment out in direct sunlight is the best way to minimise the transfer of disease that can affect the fish.

  • Bait boats are not allowed on ANY of the society waters.

  • All anglers must be in possession of a carp care kit to treat all hook holds, mouth sores, lifted scales etc.

  • The use of bent hook and long shank hook rigs are not allowed. Rig checks will be carried out.

  • Fish may be retained in purpose designed retainer slings only. NO CARP SACKS ALLOWED.

  • Fish must be retained for no longer than 30 mins, enough time to prepare fish care and photography equipment. If at any point a fish is showing signs of distress, they must be photographed and released immediately. In Summer months we may revoke this rule and ban the retaining of any fish.
