Fishery Rules

sorry no dogs

The following rules have been developed to keep both you and other anglers safe. We believe that these rules also promote good sportsmanship and are now standard on most stillwater fly fisheries. Please note that these rules may change at any time and additional rules will be added for events such our annual Icebreaker Competition.  For more information please see the relevant pages on this website.
