Fishing Rules

After the wellbeing of our guests at Woodlay, our next priority is the health and happiness of our fish. There are a few very simple rules that are designed to help protect our fish from disease, injury, mainline breakage, stress and poisoning. These rules also help our guests enjoy their fishing.  Guests seen to be ignoring the following rules will be asked to stop fishing.

  • ONLY landing nets, Keep nets, Unhooking mats and Weigh slings supplied by Woodlay Holidays may be used in our waters. There are No exceptions to this rule and Unhooking mats MUST be used
  • BARBLESS HOOKS only (No crushed or micro barbed).
  • No fixed rigs. (Very important. If the mainline breaks, weights, feeders etc need to fall off the hook length).
  • No plastic imitation baits.
  • No Braided marker float / spod rods etc.
  • No Spinners or lures.
  • No lead-cored leaders to be used.
  • No nuts (e.g. tiger, brazil etc) or beans/peas (e.g. chick, maple, blackeye, red kidney, lima, soya etc) or hemp are to be used on any lakes.
  • No under 16’s to be left fishing on their own.
  • No tackle or shelters are to be left unoccupied during the day or night for more than 2 hours on lakes. Fishing is on a first come first served basis.

Fish handling Must be carried out using the landing net and unhooking mat. Any Photographs should be taken at low level. No Standing Up with Fish – Always Kneel down when handling the fish to prevent them from injury.

Only Monofilament main line to be used - No braid. (Please always check your drags to help prevent any line breakages)

Minimum monofilament breaking strain – 10lbs on Woodland lake. (Specimen lake)

Under no circumstances should a cloth or rag be used to handle fish.

Keep nets may be used for fish up to a total limit of 60 lbs. Fish of 3 lbs or larger must be returned immediately and all fish in keep nets must be returned within 6 hours.

Please return all Nets, Unhooking mats and Weigh slings to the stands where they belong.

Please apply “klinik” or another antiseptic wound dressing to any obvious wounds on any fish once landed.

 

Tackle and bait storage

Tackle must either be kept in the Fisherman’s lodge or in guests’ cars. No tackle is to be taken into apartments.
Bait should only be stored in the bait fridge in the Fisherman’s lodge.

Courtesy

Please be considerate to other lake users and do not block paths around lakes.
Please be aware of other anglers and do not cast into their swims. A swim is classed as halfway between area you are in and the adjoining one, whether in be to the left, right or opposite.
There are no rules on maximum amount of rods that can be used but please be sensible and only fish what you are able to control and think of other anglers.
