- We operate a strict No-Kill policy. No fish are to be killed or removed from our lake.


- No striking into fish.


- THREE RODS PER ANGLER allowed (excluding those that opt for the fourth rod optional extra).


- We strongly recommend using rod pods instead of bank sticks, as our Swims are made from exceptionally hard compressed limestone. We do have pods available for hire on-site.


- All nets must be a minimum of 42” wide, with small or micro-mesh, and must be dry on arrival.


- No unattended rods. Anglers must remain within a minimum of 50m of their own or their partner's rods at all times. The Lodge is within this distance from all of the double swims, so there is no need to reel in for meals etc.


- Minimum 18lbs mono line only, no braided mainline.


- On-site purchases and rentals to be paid in € euros. We do not accept £ sterling.


- Clients are reminded not to fish, or put any bait or food of any description in the stock pond.


- Please weigh and photograph all carp, irrespective of size, for our records.


- Swims all include free use of a boat (with oars and lifejacket which MUST be worn at all times - no exceptions), carp cradle, recovery sling, and a weigh tripod.


- For insurance reasons, minors under the age of 18 are not allowed to use boats.


- All tackle, motors, and batteries should be returned to the Lodge, in a clean and dry condition, at the end of your stay. Please clean and empty boats of dirt and water before leaving.


- Please make sure that swims are free of all rubbish (pieces of line, bits of bait, cigarette butts, etc.) before you leave.


- All provided tackle will be inspected with you upon arrival and before your departure.


- Recovery slings, supplied by us, are only to be used to rest fish while setting up cameras, cradles, etc.


- Cradles and slings need to be kept wet at all times. Please change the water in the cradles and buckets regularly.


- In warmer weather, particularly during the summer months, no fish are to be taken out of the water onto the bank. Fish are to remain in/over the water at all times, day or night, for weighing and photographing please.


- Fish are to be released as soon as possible, and in water deep enough to prevent them from injury.


- No sacking of carp.


- Recognised Carp-Care kits are COMPULSORY and to be supplied by the angler, minimum one kit per swim. ALL hook holds, injuries, etc. must be treated, regardless how minor.


- Maximum size 4 hooks. Micro-barbed hooks only. No barbless hooks.


- No braided mainline, rigs, lead core, or braided “lead-free” leaders.


- Rig tubing or leaders (Nash TT Diffusion Camo leader etc.) of a minimum of 50cm are compulsory.


- Only coated braid or fluorocarbon for rigs.


- Drop-off lead systems only. This does not include traditionally mounted inline leads.


- We regularly carry out rig checks, and apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.


- We reserve the right to disallow use of certain types/qualities of baits, and associated products. To avoid any inconvenience, please check with us before your arrival.


- Nuts (and nut products), particle baits (except sweetcorn and hemp), as well as ALL PLASTIC BAITS, are STRICTLY forbidden


Failure to conform to these conditions may result in you and your group being asked to leave the site, without a refund, as well as your safety deposit being withheld.
