(click image to zoom in)
How do I purchase a bank ticket?
All bank tickets can be purchased from the self-service kiosks situated in the main car parks around our lakes. These are situated at Woodford Lodge, Blagdon Lodge and the main car park at Barrow No3. Tickets are on a pad in the kiosk. Customers are required to fill in both parts of the ticket, tear it from the pad and stick the bottom section in an envelope with the appropriate fee. No change is given. This envelope is then posted through the hole in the wall type setup. Customers must retain the top section of the ticket.
Tickets must be produced on request if required by any BW staff. Once fishing has ended the ticket must be completed and dropped into one of the numerous permit boxes found around our lakes. You are also able to post returns to Woodford lodge if preferred.
No anglers are to fish without a permit, anyone found doing so may be prosecuted or reported to the police, EA and other fisheries for the offence of poaching.
How many fish am I allowed to take?
All full day tickets permit a maximum of 8 fish to be taken (unless otherwise stated).
Afternoon tickets permit a maximum of 4 fish to be taken.
Only one brown trout can be dispatched per ticket.
Catch and release is welcomed on any ticket purchased.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Some bank areas have restricted access due to some of our sites being within SSSI’s. Please ask a member of staff or call 07741231991 out of hours for the combination. Anglers are required to lock gates behind them, failure to do so may result in exclusion from our waters.
Is it true that juniors can fish for FREE?
Yes! We want to encourage youngsters into the sport of fly fishing. We permit juniors to share the limit with any full paying adult. The option of a junior ticket is there should a junior also wish to also have a limit of fish. The choice is yours!
Can I bulk buy bank tickets?
We offer ten bank tickets for the price of 9 in the form of a ‘book of ten’. 2020 Books of ten are redeemable against bank fishing and cannot be used against the price of boat costs. All ten tickets must also be used within the season for which they are purchased. For more information please contact a member of our team on 01275 332339.
At what time can I start bank fishing and what time do I need to leave?
Full day bank permits allow an angler to start fishing 1 hour before sunrise until 1 hour after sunset. Afternoon tickets start from 3pm.
