**Reserving Swims**

Thought we’d just clarify the situation with reserving swims at the fishery. We don’t actually take any bookings or reserve swims unless they are for match/event lake advance bookings or for groups of ten or more, again booked in advance. The only exceptions we may make to this are for the disabled swims on Oxlease or B-1, magazine or DVD shoots, some tutorials or for the “On-Call” emergency duty bailiff/first-aider at weekends. However, when you first arrive at the fishery we have no problem at all with you walking round with a bucket or item of tackle and reserving the swim, just long enough for you to return to your vehicle, load your barrow and then return to that swim. Please note however that if the bucket is there for more than about 45-mins the fishery team may remove it and leave it at the fishery office. In recent years we’ve had major issues with anglers trying to stop other anglers fishing the swim next to them, normally by placing a bucket or item of tackle in it. Another issue he have is when anglers show up, drop a bucket in a swim and then go for a wonder around all the lakes to see if there is a better option, this is not allowed. If there is a genuine reason why you may need to leave it a bit longer, you must make sure you contact the on-site bailiff to make him aware.

Can we also take this moment to advise you about what you should reserve a swim with, when you return to your vehicle. Please ensure you use an empty bucket or something of a similarly low value. It’s very rare that we get reports of buckets/tackle being stolen when reserving a swim in this way, last week however an angler used their hooking mat with his alarms inside it, unfortunately when he returned from his car with the rest of his tackle, the mat and alarms were gone. We are a very busy site and it seems some anglers are far less genuine than others so please only use something of low value. We hope that all makes sense and clears up any confusion some anglers may have, if you are at all unsure, then please give the fishery a call or send us a message. Many thanks for taking the time to read this.
