Tactics and Rules
As a general rule maggots, sweet corn and bread punch work well in the winter.A huge variety of baits work well in the summer:
- Bread crusts and dog biscuits as floating bait together with:
- Flavoured meat (tandoori)
- Pellet paste (cheese and curry)
- Banded pellets
- Liquidised bread
- Chopped worms
- Old faithfuls - maggots, sweet corn, bread punch
- Cat food
- Macaroni cheese
- Baked beans
- Anything smelly from your fridge that will stay on your hook!
Feed the swim little and often.
Fish lighter than you think you need to for best results
The main rule is COMMON SENSE but please read on
Fish friendly keep nets only.
It is compulsory to use two keepnets when fishing in a match. Large and small fish must be kept separately to avoid the smaller ones from becoming crushed. We ask that pleasure fishermen either use two separate nets or decide only to keep small or large fish in a keepnet.
No boilies, dried nuts or bloodworm
All other baits limited to a maximum of 1kg
Do not throw surplus bait into the lakes, bin it or take it home
Barbless hooks only
No braided line
De-hooking mats MUST be used for landing fish
14's and under MUST be accompanied by an adult, unless a valid season ticket holder
Open dawn to dusk - no night fishing

Please help us to keep the site tidy by placing your litter in the appropriate bins (at the bin store located in the fishing car park) before you leave. All bulky items such as tents, gazebos, chairs, fishing rods, umbrellas, etc must be taken home or to your nearest recycling centre.
