Rules and regulations

General Rules

Fishermen are expected to behave in an appropriate manner at all times and show consideration for other fishermen. Most importantly, we expect fishermen to treat the fish with the respect they deserve, and handle them with every care.

Hillside Fishery reserves the right to eject fishermen if we feel their behaviour is inappropriate. Whilst the consumption of alcohol is permitted, anyone behaving badly under the influence will be banned from the fishery.

Due to previous attempts to steal fish, we reserve the right to check vehicles at any time. Anyone attempting to remove fish will be prosecuted.

ALL rubbish must be taken home.

Before commencing fishing, all anglers must see and pay the bailiff.

No keepnets (only allowed use in matches).

Fishermen are reminded that no responsibility will be accepted for any accidents or damage to persons or property.
