Priory Farm fishing lakes

Please also note:

Care of Fish Stocks

Great care must be taken when handling fish. It is advisable to return your catch in the landing net or at very least close to the water. Do not just throw them into the water, this may cause the fish to dive deeply and risk damaging themselves on the rocks close to the edge.

Never handle fish with a dry cloth as this will remove their protective slime. Please do not swing in fish of 6oz or more as this may result in damaged lips and barbless hooks only please.

Remember the fish are there for your sport and enjoyment - dead and dying ones are not!
