LICENCES Every member of 12 years and over must carry an Environment Agency licence if they wish to fish.   The EA licence  allows the use of two  rods, although although some club waters only allow one rod. No member may use more than two rods on any club water, but see below re 3 rods on our night fishing permit waters in Winter.
CLUB KEY  Most of our waters require a gate key, which is provided to all new members on joining. This will open all gates between 1st May and 31st March only.
CLOSE SEASON Club waters are not accessible during our Close Season, which is 15th March to 15th June inclusive on rivers and the month of April on stillwaters. We do undertake working parties on our stillwaters during March and April. Adult members will be supervised during work in the morning, then be allowed a few hours fishing in the afternoon, at the discretion of that water's Fishery Officer.

NIGHT FISHING

No longer available

 An additional permit/fee will be required by Ordinary, Associate, Intermediate and Junior members to fish at Barleylands (Crays Hill) & Laundry Lake (Little Easton) between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.. This is for the welfare of the carp at both waters, and to avoid angling pressure by overcrowding.
 
Please apply for this permit at the time of joining/renewing. If it is added to an existing membership during the season, an additional admin fee will be charged to amend the card, which will then result in at least a week without the membership documents.
 
Those Ordinary members who purchase a night permit will be allowed to fish their respective water with three rods from 1st November 2019 until 31st March 2020. The appropriate E.A. licence covering three rods will be required, and will be checked.
