As the government are now easing Covid Restrictions and hopefully there is some form of light at the end of tunnel we have relaxed some of our Covid Rules. Below are the only restrictions we would like anglers to adhere to.

1. Social distancing must be adhered to at all times and respect the safety of others (unless from same household).

2. One non fishing guest allowed on south side (Pegs 1 - 41) as long as from same household.

3.  Cars to be parked in accordance with our rules but leave a good space between vehicles.

4. For the safety of all, if you have Coronavirus or Symptoms of Coronavirus, Please Stay at home. Fishing Sherborne Lake or any other fishing venue is not a place where you can self isolate.
