Rules

Our rules are incredibly important for the welfare of our fish, and our lake. Each angler will be required to read and sign a copy upon booking. Please be aware there are no second chances or warnings. If any member of your booking breaks the rules, we reserve the right to terminate your holiday for the whole group with no compensation or refund.

  • No leaders of any description, no knots in main line.
  • No leadcore.
  • Anti tangle tubing must be used. A minimum of 18 in (45 cm) has to be used on all rods.This helps to prevent their scales from being lifted.
