Our prices are modest for the fishing available, the rules are few and simple and true anglers are willing to pay these charges. However, there have been people who have fished without a permit which is illegal and also unfair to those who have paid. Posession of a fish in these circumstancess is theft. We urge anyone who can identify an angler who is fishing illegally to inform the Secretary on: 01697 322421 with full details (particularly a vehicle number) or an Environment Agency Official on: 01768 215801 or a Police Officer.
