Wildlife Care

The Dangers of LitterIt is very important to discard old or tangled line carefully. Ideally it should be cut into small pieces with scissors and bagged up before disposal.The danger to birds and other wildlife is enormous and can cause long periods of suffering and death. Line that gets tangled in trees and bushes should be cut or pulled out immediately and dealt with, before birds fly into and get stuck. Line that gets wound around the legs of ducks or geese will tighten as they try to free themselves and eventually will cut off the blood circulation resulting in the foot or leg of the bird actually dropping off.

ALL litter must be taken home with you but common sense whilst fishing will prevent dangers to wildlife and anglers alike. Smokers make sure that your butt ends are not allowed to finish up in the pools, the filter tips look like food to the fish and swell inside them often causing death. Small animals can get their heads stuck through the plastic rings that hold beer cans together and the pull rings cause choke hazards. Likewise luncheon meat can tops that pull off are very sharp and dangerous and often overlooked on the banks when packing up.The Dangers of Litter

We do have one or two feral cats that ‘beg’ from the anglers, please DO NOT feed them as they are wild and do scratch.

Please be aware of your surroundings and help us to maintain a safe environment for all our local wildlife.

    How Much is it for OAP to fish half day

  • rich s

    Went for the 1st time in years. Bottom pool is excellent for carp and other fish. Both ladies on site deserve credit for the food etc at good prices. Unfortunately some anglers still insist on flouting rules such as no bread, no cooking on site. I saw more than 4/5 anglers on the top pool ( where it is not easy to keep an eye on them ) wait till the ladies went away, then took bread ( no floating baits allowed) from inside their jackets.They used the bread and even hooked a duck in the mouth, then took ages to get the duck reeled in.Dont know if the duck survived but it was left with a bleeding mouth due to these morons.
    The top pool needs cctv but cannot fault the fishing.

      Hi Rich,
      Thank you for your kind comments. Actually two anglers from the top pool who were here yesterday have been banned from the pools because of rule breaking. They will never be allowed to fish here again There are CCTV cameras everywhere but we cannot sit and watch all the time. We do however review footage after complaints and ALWAYS take the appropriate action. Many of our regulars tip me off about rule breakers as well so I can respond immediately (discreetly of course) Thank you again for your feedback, it is always appreciated.
      Best regards,
      Diane
