COMPETITION RECOMMENDATIONS
For angling competitions competitors are advised that catch and release cards are available for when the number of fish required for the table has been reached. Measuring boards are provided in every boat if required. To minimise handling we recommend that the time of the first fish caught be used to decide the winner in the event of a tie. The price of fish removal is still currently undervalued at £2 per fish. The real price of fish is around £4 each. As we continue to move towards realistic fish pricing, big fish limit tickets will become less popular so now is a good time to change your competition habits!

NOTES
Boatmen will only be in attendance at the commencement and termination of each session. Boat hires must be taken up within 30 minutes of each session (unless prior arrangement has been made), and returned not later than the times shown. A qualified instructor or ghillie can be arranged through the booking office. Fishery staff mobile numbers located on inside of boats.
