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.

A full years fishing for one on any of Linear’s popular day ticket waters at Oxford. This is a unique prize – as there are no annual permits available to the public. Does not include Hunts Corner Lake.

The Graviers Long Lake: Situated in the Dijon Valley. This lovely five acre lake is controlled by Luke Moffatt who operates the famous Graviers Fishery [home of a world record carp] The smaller Long Lake is now virtually un-fished but the fish are fed regularly by Luke who on rare occasions allows friends to fish there. It is around 50 meters distance from the famous Graviers Main Lake, allowing the winners of this prize to be shown around the larger water and speak to Luke, who has been running the two waters for over 14 years. …and who knows…the winners may even get to witness the capture of a new world record during the week!!
Heavily stocked, the smaller long lake is estimated to hold around 500 to 700 carp, up to 50 pounds. When the lake was open for fishing, it would regularly produce over 100 fish a week to 2 anglers, if baited correctly.
This prize is the fishing for two people on the Long Lake and a ticket for the ferry crossing for both them and one car. For the trip SonuBaits will provide 60 kilos (sixty) of their Code Red Boilies

One years membership - value £640. The syndicate comprises of three lakes, all very close together. All the lakes contain a high proportion of big carp and several different carp over 40 pounds have been caught from two of the lakes.
