Welcome to Linear Fisheries

Probably the best day ticket carp waters in the UK

At Linear Fisheries we aim to provide a safe and memorable angling experience, offering excellent fishing and customer service whilst still maintaining a profitable, sustainable business and managing the surrounding environment in a sympathetic manner. The team at Linear have a passion for angling and are driven to provide the best Day-Ticket and Syndicate waters in the country. This is our Mission Statement and something we constantly strive to achieve.

Within the pages of this website is much of the information you need to start fishing our waters at Oxford and much more that we hope will be of interest to newcomers and regulars alike. In the Gallery section you will find photos of some of the lovely fish our lakes have produced over the last year or so, along with our rules and other useful information that will help with your trip to the complex. You can also visit our Facebook Page or YouTube Channel and can follow us on Instagram. Every year, since 1990 we have produced either an annual newsletter or brochure, and 2018 is no exception. Our new, free brochure is now available and can be ordered or downloaded from this website, where you can also order a copy of our current Fishery DVD. During 2018 we will start work filming our next DVD, which should be available by Jan 2019. In recent years we implemented a scheme which allowed children under the age of twelve to fish for free on the Day Ticket Waters providing they are accompanied by a paying adult angler and fishing in the same swim. This scheme was very well received, so well that from last year we decided to extend the scheme to cover all children under the age of 16. This concession will only apply during the UK school holiday breaks and weekends. More details of this can be found on the Prices Pages of this web site.

Can we please ask everyone who plans to visit our fishery to make sure they are aware of all our fishery rules. These rules help us maintain the site, help protect our environment and the amazing stock of fish that resides in our waters. They also play a massive part in ensuring your visit to the fishery is as enjoyable as possible. Our rules are enforced, so please take time to read them before you arrive.

All of us at Linear Oxford are dedicated to the continued running of a well-kept and well stocked fishery, not just for carp anglers but for all who wish to fish them - be it for tench, roach, bream, pike, perch and catfish – all of which abound in our waters.

From all at Linear – ENJOY THE WEBSITE AND BE LUCKY. Chris Blunt – General Manager.

Open Day

On Saturday May 12th 2018 we will be hosting our annual Open Day on the complex – further details of this event are contained within our brochure and within this web site. If you are interested in any of the waters [including the syndicates] you will be welcome to come along on the day and have a look around the site or to seek advice from the Linear Bailiffs who will be attending that day. There will also be tackle stands and some scheduled demonstrations by well-known anglers – Please look out for further details on our website.
