4. Maximum of four rods per person. Rods must be fished from the same swim and not spread along the bank.

5. All particle baits (beans & seeds) must be fully cooked before use, ‘soaked only’ particles can be a danger to the fish and are not permitted.

Use of boats on either fishery is done entirely at your own risk and no responsibility is accepted by the management for any accidents or injuries that might occur. Anglers are NOT PERMITTED to bring their own rowing boats.

11. Please challenge any persons that you suspect should not be on site. All anglers should be in possession of a Booking Confirmation, etc. Avoid giving any information about the fishery and its stock, etc. to people that should not be on the property. Inform the management immediately if you discover anyone that should not be on site as they could be tackle thieves!
