Bookings for the 2018-2019 season will be taken from 10:00am on SUNDAY 28th January 2018.

We are pleased to announce that major work on the Redmire Conservation Project will begin in mid-September 2018 (in addition to measures to combat ground water issues that are already under way). In February, we will begin sharing more details about the project, which will be led by Mark Walsingham, owner and manager of the famous Ashmead Fishery in Somerset and chief architect of the conservation plan.

Because no fishing can take place after work begins, no bookings will be taken for dates AFTER Monday 17th September 2018.
