In addition to the rules, all anglers must have read the rules amendments below:
Anglers must arrive at the times specified below:
All anglers (irrespective of whether or not they are from the same household) must fish at least 5m apart.
Anglers are permitted one non-fishing guest. The non-fishing guest can remain in the same swim space.
Anglers fishing overnight must bring their own hand sanitiser, and must use it before and after shutting the otter gates (see below).
Each angler will be permitted to be accompanied by no more than one non-fishing guest.
Anglers must have packed up and left the fishery before 7pm, unless you have valid tickets to fish overnight on the specimen lakes, Alder or Black Lake.
With the exception of the main Otter gate, which will continue to be opened (and closed) by fishery personnel, all other otter gates must be kept closed.
Anglers must use hand sanitiser before and after using the otter gates.
These measures ensure that both direct and indirect contact between yourselves and anyone else is kept to a minimum and is intended to protect both your health and that of the wider community.
