If someone asks to be let on to the venue without a validticket ring Simon, Rob or Tony. Do not allow entry to anyone pretending to be from the council a utility company or environment agency, its usually a scam and if they are genuine they will have spoken to the owner to arrange access

 Additional Rules 


Road Lake Only 


1 . Missing Star Burst, 3 Scales and the Hoover are to be weighed using your own tripod or with the tripod provided under the Gazebo. There is also a Euro Mat provided for syndicate use if needed.

3. Minimum nylon line diameter must be .38mm 


4. Helicopter Rigs : The top bead must pass easily over the knot between the main line and the leader. Korda and Thinking Anglers do kits for this situation (checks will be carried out to make sure the bead is correctly used) 


5.  Dogs are permitted on Roadlake but only with prior agreement of Rob (head bailiff) 


Fox Pool Only 


1. All captures of carp MUST be recorded in the “Captures” book which is kept in the lodge. 


. If you catch a carp it must be recorded in the book before your departure from the venue. 


2.  Zig rigs are not to be used on Fox Pool at any time 


3. Due to the large amount of cut offs caused by the bars and mussels in Fox, line diameters must be a minimum of  .38mm for Fluro Carbon or .40mm for mono/nylon lines. Braided mainline is permitted on Fox Pool. Due to its abrasion resistance  I do not have a minimum diameter



Anglers with inadequate line will be asked to leave the venue immediately and not return until they have sufficient lines. If I have to send the Bailiffs round with a micrometer then I will do. You’ve been warned. 


4.  Dogs are allowed with prior permission only. They have to be on a lead at all times when walking the venue and should be secured in your swim so they are not able to roam free to any adjacent swims. 


Not all my members are dog lovers and we need to respect that and so you need to keep your dog with you at all times.
