Orchill Coarse Fishery Rules

Postby clarky » 25 Jan 2014 20:19
After talk with Andrew we have drafted a set of rules specific to the fishery as follows;

General rules
• 1 rod in use at a time only.
• No feeding of other lines while fishing with a bait in the water unless feeding by hand or catapult or similar.
• No fishing outside your section. The limit of your section is the platform either side of you not in front of it. If the peg beside you is taken you may fish half way between the other angler and yourself.
• The angler must be present at their peg for their fish to be weighed in(unless in the case of an emergency and dispensation has been agreed by event organiser)
• Any grievances or issues must be brought to the match organiser’s attention before payouts are made at the end of each match.
• The management and event organisers reserve the right to spot check customers tackle to check they are observing these rules. Those who persist in breaking these rules will be barred. In the event of an angler breaking the rules, that anglers disqualification is at the discretion of the event organisers.
• Additional rules and or restrictions may be added at any time by the fishery or match organizers.
• Anglers are allowed to check the far bank for loose reed’s, obvious snags or discarded rig’s and remove with a net or similar, but no reeds, rushes, grass or banking is to be cut or pulled away. (If venturing onto the far bank please take disruption to other anglers pegs into account and stay away from the edge of others pegs unless asked). This must be completed 1 hour before the all in, there after no angler is allowed to walk onto the far bank until the all out. Same will apply to anglers on the inner circle that nobody is to cross either the bottom or top bridges or overlook the bank behind them within the above time limit.
• If fishing a peg on the inner circle on the straight from peg number 74 up to peg number 61 you must park at the bottom car park and walk to your peg via the bottom bridge. If on the inner circle from peg number 54 to peg number 60 you must walk to your peg via the top bridge at peg 53/0. Under no Circumstances should any angler need to walk across the Culvet across from peg 19 at any point.
• All rubbish must be removed from the peg and placed in the bins provided.
rig/tackle rules
• Barbless hooks only, maximum size 12
(manufactured barbless please - no crushed, filed or nipped barbs).
• A minimum hook length of 4 inches must hang below your feeder and bomb when you cast out. (You can tuck your bait in when fishing the method)
• No braid
• A pole rig must have a float which much break the surface of the water ie no free lining(sight indicators such as Korum Blobs are allowed)

Bait Rules
• No surface baits (i.e. floating on the surface). No artificial baits
• Only Orchill Fishery feed pellets can be used. Anglers can use their choice of hook pellets.
• No meat of any description, surface floating baits or boilies.
• Bread is allowed from the 1st October until the end of March.
• No balling in (i.e. jaffa sized balls). You can catapult or throw small walnut sized balls.
