Do you allow night fishing?

No, sorry, we are open from dawn to dusk.

Back to the top

Do you sell bait?

No, we don’t sell any bait here.  We are very lucky that a number of our local tackle shops recommend us and send us a lot of customers so we don’t tread on their toes!

Back to the top

Are there any bait bans?

Yes, but it’s a short list!  We don’t allow; boilies; bloodworm or dried nuts.  All other baits are allowed to a maximum of 1kg.

Back to the top

What baits are working well?

A huge variety of baits work well here.  For latest information please read our latest fishing report – click here.

Back to the top

Can I use a keepnet?

Yes, but it must be a fish-friendly one.  We also ask you to use your common sense and not mix large and small fish in the same net.

Back to the top

What equipment must I have?

You must have: barbless hooks, a disgorger and a fish-friendly landing net.  A landing mat (or something soft to place the fish on whilst you de-hook it – an old baby changing mat is ideal!) is essential on the Carp Lake and good to have on the other lakes too.

Back to the top

Do you hire equipment?

No, sorry.  Your local tackle shop should be able to set you up quite reasonably.

Back to the top

Do I need a rod licence?

Yes.  You can obtain a licence either at the Post Office or via the Environment Agency’s website - click here

Back to the top

Do you offer tuition?

There are several good, professional angling coaches that we can put you in touch with.  See the tuition section of our website for details.

How is it fishing at the moment?

This is probably the question we are asked the most!  Latest information is always available on the fishing report – click here.

Back to the top

What’s in the different lakes?

Fish!  (Sorry, couldn’t resist that!).  For details of what’s in each of the five lakes, please take a look at the ‘lakes page’. 

Back to the top

Where can I fish?

Please fish from a designated swim – we have 143 to choose from!  Do not stalk fish along the bank.

Back to the top

Can I send you my photos?

Yes please!  If you can e-mail them to us in jpeg format that’s great.  We can also do it the old fashioned way from a printed photo by scanning them in.  We can’t promise that we’ll feature all of them on the website but we’ll do our best. 

Back to the top

How can I give you feedback?

By far the easiest way is by sending us an e-mail.  We love to hear about it if you’ve had a good day; a personal best; a bulging bag; caught your first golden tench; etc.  Let us know what tactics and baits you used and we can then pass it on to other anglers.  Equally we’d like to know if something was wrong when you visited us.  We try to provide the best fishing experience that we can but we’re always open to suggestions on how we could improve.

On the other hand, if you enjoy staying on a quiet, peaceful site in a rural location, with a family atmosphere, we'd love to see you.  Please also see our terms and conditions.
