Fish Safety

Please note that whilst fishing on Tara and Avoca lakes, anglers must have a cradle style weigh sling. All Carp and Cats must not be photographed while standing up and must have the weigh mat under the fish at all times. fish must also be transported to and from the water in the sling.

Anglers should also be in possession of a carp care kit on all carp waters.

These rules are for the safety of the fish and angler not in the possession of the correct kit will be asked to leave and no refund will be given.

Tagged Fish Competition

How it works.

The competition fee is £1.00 each match (optional) plus your match fee.

Each match pool will contain one tagged fish to start (Suez, Moors, Panama and Arena) if an angler has paid into the competition and catches one of these fish, they will receive the total accumulated cash pot for that particular lake.

Only weekend and bank holiday opens will count.

If a tagged fish is caught make sure it is retained as normal and verified at the weigh in.

The fishery has donated a sum to each cash pot the get it started so from Saturday 26th November the competition is open.
