Advice for fishing on our campsites

Whether you're a pro or just starting out, we want your on-site fishing experience to be exactly what you want to make of it. Here are some tips to make sure you and those around you can have an enjoyable experience.

• Please remember that all water is potentially dangerous, no matter how deep and care should be taken when fishing

• Handle fish with wet hands and care, then release them carefully into the water to avoid any harm to the fish

• Never leave a rod unattended with bait on the bank as this may attract other birds or animals

• Use non-toxic weights where applicable – never lead weights as they are illegal while dust shot (size 8 and smaller) are legal, they are toxic to birds if ingested. Use spillproof containers for lead dust shot and always dispose of used lead safely at home

• Use barbless or micro- barb hooks

• Never leave any litter – take it home for safe disposal

• Many of the fishing sites may have their own rules, please familiarise yourself with them before you fish
