~(posted 09/09/2020) Ground-bait back in stock!
We’re stocked back up on Bait-Tech Super Method Mix (1KG).
*Stock is likely to come and go as suppliers aren’t back to normal yet!
~(posted 23/06/2020) Hook-lenths back in stock! (No Ground-bait)
We’re stocked back up on all hook lengths & baiting needles (including speedstop). Some items will also be available to purchase on our website within the next few days.
Please be aware we are still unable to stock ground-bait. (micro pellets still available!)
~(posted 16/06/2020) Tackle Shop Stocking Issue
As some may have already noticed, our stock of hook-lengths has become extremely limited. Due to high demand, manufacturers are currently unable to provide stock of many items.
ALL Banded Hook-lengths (4″ & 15″), Baiting Needles & Ground-bait are completely out of stock.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and we will keep you posted on this matter!
~(posted 07/06/2020) Spawning finished!
The Carp have finished spawning and are feeding well!
~(posted 29/05/2020) Carp Are Currently Spawning
Please be aware, as of this morning the carp are now spawning, we therefore ask you to avoid fishing in the margins where carp are spawning.
This is to reduce the risk of foul hooking fish that aren’t currently feeding!

~(posted 19/03/2020) (COVID-19) IMPORTANT NOTICE IN RESPONSE TO ANGLERS ENQUIRIES:
Whilst Andy, Jay and I remain healthy (and long may it continue!!) we will continue to open unless otherwise instructed. Although we will have to introduce some ‘dont’s’ i’m afraid.
We would ask anyone showing or been exposed to cold or flu like symptoms to respectfully not attend the fishery.
As disruptions to schools continue would request that for the time being, students refrain from gathering at the fishery as an alternative and would ask parents to assist us with this.
Please be aware, we may refuse entry.
We apologise for these unprecedented measures but hope you understand.
