Fisheries Update 1st March 2021

Following the government’s road map out of lock down announcement I can confirm we will be:

Opening Thornton, Draycote & Eyebrook on Monday the 29th March 2021.

Thornton 01530 230807     Draycote 01788 812018    Eyebrook 01536 770264

Staff are at the lodges from 9.00am to accept bookings, you will be required to prebook your boat or bank fishing, we will require a telephone contact number. Pre-payment will be required at the time of booking

As the lodges / shops have to remain closed until 12th April earliest & the 2m social distancing rule will still be in place for some time we will operate the same system as last year, payment via debit or credit card at the time of booking.

We expect the phone to be busy, have your credit or debit card to hand, the staff will during the transaction be asking for your:

Card Number – Use by Date – 3 digit number on the back of your card – your Post Code – House Number

With the lodges closed booking in & out area will be outside the lodge with your boat permit & receipt also outside the lodge for you to pick up.

Please use the hand sanitiser provide & wear a face covering in line with government guidelines.

I have taken the decision to suspend loyalty cards its one less interaction between staff & yourselves. If you have any full loyalty cards you can still use them.

Pontoon guidelines will be the same as we were operating during last year. Staff will allocate your boat number, restrict angler numbers on the pontoon to ensure social distancing. We will continue to disinfect boats & life jacket after every session & provide hand sanitiser

There is hope for a good season, vaccination roll out is going well, thankfully, hospital admissions, infection rates & deaths are currently going down, let’s hope that continues & we get similar spring weather as last year, warm with light winds and great hatches.
