Make sure every member of your club is aware of the rules before the start of the match.

You are not allowed to use your own nets. We supply keep nets, landing nets and weighing in bucket. Bring your own scales.

A £25 deposit is required before all matches, for the nets, by every club. It will be refunded at the end of the match, when all nets are returned intact. Please look at the net rules page for the complete list of rules for nets.

Start weighing in as soon as possible. Do not put your equipment away first.

The maximum weight in a keep net is sixty pounds. Anything over should not be counted.

If three or more anglers in a club go over weight the club will be banned.

All matches should start by 10am and finish by 3pm. Unless previously agreed. Do not make assumptions. Matches run for five hours only. Do not pleasure fish after the matches.
