Match Fishing Rules


  • Barbless hooks only, maximum size 12.
  • Maximum match duration 6 hours.
  • No litter.
  • Dead fish will not be weighed.
  • Bait restrictions - No cat or dog meat.

  • Anglers must not lift their keep nets from the water , fishery staff will be on hand at the end of your match to weigh all fish, this is to prevent damage to our fish stocks.

  • No floating baits, floating pole may be used providing the bait is a minimum of 12 inches below the surface.

  • Popped up baits may be used provided that the bait is without any doubt below the surface.

  • Only pellets (including feed and hook pellets) supplied by the fishery can be used on all Match Waters, these pellets are available from the fishery office.

  • Method bans : All methods can be used unless otherwise stated -Exclusions are : No self hooking floats allowed, including Numpty, Splasher, Bagging Wagglers, Controller, Bubble type floats, Pellet Floats or any variations of the above.

  • All Wagglers must be of a standard bottom end only design with a maximum capacity of 12 grams including loading (photos of floats which can and can not be used are shown on the gallery page to avoid confusion).

  • Please note that the shotting capacity of the float must be visible (i.e. not painted over) and floats which say 12 + any other amount are too big.

  • In order to avoid confusion caused by the abundance of floats on the market now described as wagglers, the maximum width of the visible part of the float (i.e. that part showing above the water surface) must be no more than 8mm.This is probably the thickest peacock quill available.  Balsa pellet wagglers are generally thicker than this and only those with a visible insert of 8mm or less are allowed.

  • This rule is to prevent fishing matches from becoming one method only events as was the case in the past when self hooking floats were allowed. This rule applies to all three match lakes.

  • TRIPP LAKE is classed as a float only venue, float only means with pole or running line only, no ledgering or feeder fishing, this rule only applies to TRIPP LAKE.

  • No dogs are allowed on any of our sites.

  • Please help to preserve the abundance of wildlife on our fishery by taking all litter and line home, you may not be around to see the results of discarded line but we are!

  • Please do not stand behind anglers who are competing in matches. They have a limited time in which to try to make a winning catch and you may reduce their chances of doing so.

  • A separate set of rules apply to the syndicate lakes which are provided by the fishery upon membership acceptance.
