Welcome to Linear Fisheries

Probably the best day ticket carp waters in the UK

The pages of this website contain 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 are some of the terrific fish the lakes have produced over the last year or so along with our rules and useful information that will help with your visits to our waters.

To coincide with the school Easter holidays and commencing from April 1st this year, we are introducing a scheme which allows children under the age of twelve to fish for free on the Day Ticket waters providing they are accompanied by an adult angler. This concession will only apply during the UK school holiday breaks. At the same time we are also introducing a lower priced day ticket for OAP’s on Tuesdays to Thursdays which will further reduce the OAP prices mid week. There will be no price increase on the 1st of January but on the 1st April this year we plan to drop the Three Rod price for 12 hours fishing from £21 to £18.

At the end of 2014 Linear’s sponsorship by Richworth ended amicably. Both companies believed the time was right to go their separate ways but agree they will always remain closely associated.

In August this year our Head Bailiff, Roy Parsons, will be retiring. Roy, who has been with us at Oxford, for over twenty years has made numerous friends and many visiting anglers who have got to know him well in that time will surely miss him. Another who will certainly be missed at the fishery is Steve Leonard; Steve, who has been a mainstay at the complex, conscientiously carrying out his weekend bailiff duties in all weathers, left us for a full time job in children’s education in October last year. All of us at Linear wish them both the very best in the future, as we are sure those of you who have got to know them do.

We at Linear Oxford are dedicated to continue running 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 GOOD FISHING. Len Gurd, Fishery Manager.

Open Day

On Saturday May 9th this year Linear will be hosting an Open Day on the complex – more details of this are contained within our brochure and web site. Anyone interested in any of the waters [including the syndicates] will be welcome to come along just to look around or 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 – look out for further details on our website.

Renowned fishing lakes to feature in Dovetail Games Fishing

Chatham, Kent – 5th March 2015– Dovetail Games, the multi award-winning simulation developer and publisher today announced that it has signed a licensing agreement with Linear Fisheries for its upcoming game Dovetail Games Fishing.

Linear Fisheries is the most well-known day ticket fishing complex in the UK. Based in Oxford, the facility offers a choice of eight waters to choose from on a day ticket, giving those with a keen interest in fishing the opportunity to come and fish as and when they choose, without needing to commit to long-term membership programmes.

As part of the deal, Linear Fisheries’ St. John’s Lake will be one of the main featured lakes to be included in the full release of Dovetail Games Fishing, later in 2015. The two companies will then continue to work together to create additional lakes for inclusion in downloadable content to be released after the game’s initial launch.

“It’s been fantastic to work with Linear Fisheries to faithfully recreate St. John’s Lake for Dovetail Games Fishing. The team at Linear has given us unprecedented access to the lake, giving us the chance to take photographs from every swim and map every landmark surrounding the water,” said Darren Potter, Development Director at Dovetail Games. “Our aim is to deliver the most realistic fishing simulation ever made, and working hand in hand with Linear gives us the opportunity to create a very detailed and authentic fishing environment for our players.”

Linear Fisheries’ Director Andrew Smith added, “We’re very impressed with what we’ve seen so far of Dovetail Games Fishing. The game is extremely realistic and we’re happy to be working with Dovetail Games to help contribute to that sense of realism. Anything that encourages more people into the sport of fishing gets a big thumbs-up from us.”

Dovetail Games will also be showing Dovetail Games Fishing at the Linear Fisheries fifth annual pro-am charity event, ‘Fish with the Stars’, which takes place from 10th – 12th August 2015.

Built with Unreal Engine 4®, Dovetail Games Fishing is a new breed of outdoor sport simulation that faithfully depicts the real-world competitive and recreational angling experience. Players will need to choose the right tools for the job at hand to locate, attract and land their wily prey. The full adventure will eventually expand to encompass a worldwide variety of species, environments and fishing styles.

Dovetail Games is currently scheduled for release later in 2015 for PC, with other platforms to follow later. For the latest news and developments, please visit dtgfishing.com or follow along on Dovetail Games’ Twitter and Dovetail Games’ Facebook.
