Right, our rules fall into three categories, those that relate to the fish, those that relate to you the angler, and those that apply to the property.
Firstly to fish at Frant you have to be over 18 or have someone over 18 with you at all times and have with you the following basic equipment other than obviously your rod.
A landing net - depending on whether you are fishing the main lakes or the specimen lakes you will need either a 24” or a 36” landing net.
A landing mat - to protect the scales of the fish when unhooking them on the bank, not sharing one with your mate, one of your own.
Barbless hooks - If you get snagged up, the fish cannot shake off the hook and will die, therefore if we find you using barbed hooks, even microbarbs, you will be asked to leave the lakes.
Braid - We don't allow braid as main line, but hook links are permitted. Coated only and maximum length of 12 inches coupled with a barbless hook please.
When handling fish, we expect nothing less than considerate landing and handling. On the bank we want them speedily unhooked, if you want a photo, hold the fish below your knees so that when you drop them, (it's easy to do even if you feel you have a good hold on the fish - they're slippery...) they stand a chance of surviving the fall.
We want you to enjoy your fishing at Frant, we also want those fishing near you to enjoy themselves too.
Anglers are reminded that stalking is not permitted at Frant.
We ask that the lakes are as quiet as possible at all times, but particularly so at night. When setting up we realise that bivvie pegs have to be hammered in, and we also know you want to exchange bit of banter with those fishing with you, but spare a thought for those who arrived before you and have been coaxing the fish to their swim only to have someone turn up, make a racket and then want peace and quiet for their own fishing.
Anglers are reminded that they need to be prepared when camping out beside the lakes, particularly at night. It is a condition of entry that we will assume you have a weatherproof shelter, warm clothing a torch and a working mobile phone as the minimum equipment for spending a night here at Frant Lakes. Although alcohol is not prohibited on site, excessive consumption will result in your expulsion from the fishery as will the use of any illegal substances, and we also reserve the right to notify the Police and other agencies of your vehicle registration number.
We operate a secure site here at Frant. Outside opening hours the gates are locked and entry and exit are forbidden. Perimeter alarms trigger if you try to climb over the gates, friends who want to visit you at night whilst the site is closed should be informed that they will be asked to leave, as will you.
Dogs - We don’t allow them here under any circumstances.
Children - We don't allow under 18s on site without an accompanying adult. If you are bringing a youngster with you, please ensure that they are well behaved.
Bait boats - Best to assume we don’t allow them. We have no objection to them in principle but our customers don’t like them and to be fair you don’t need one at Frant.
Spectators - No non-fishing spectators are permitted here at Frant. Fishing permits can be purchased on line using the 'Book now' button below, or by phoning the office on 01892 616424 during opening hours and paying by card.
Rubbish - Please ensure that all rubbish is placed in one of the many bins situated around the site.
Barbeques - We allow them, please be careful. The fire risk is acute during the summer months, we prefer the disposable type which we ask you to douse with water after use.
Open Fires - These are strictly forbidden. Anyone lighting a fire on the site will be asked to leave.
When you Arrive.
You must have already pre-booked your swim before arrival. With a reduced number of swims, and to maintain the appropriate distancing, We can no longer accept anglers without a booking.
When you first arrive at Frant, we have a long downhill approach road to the security office, please approach this barrier slowly, we have a 10mph speed limit on the site
At the barrier, please exit your vehicle, and confirm your booking with the duty bailiff,
When you have passed though the security barrier, if you're fishing one of the six main lakes for the day,you should then drive to one of the two car parks, stopping by the lakes is not permitted. Cars and people don’t mix and we want you to be safe.
If you have a ticket for the main lakes you may fish on any swim on lakes 1 to 6 subject to match bookings on the day.
If you have a specimen lake ticket, please park in the main car park. The Frant Lake Transits have 'Frant' number plates, please load your gear and it will be taken to the appropriate lake. Our driver will not touch your gear, and you will not be able to travel in the van.
Finally, we can only put fish in the lakes we can’t make them jump on your hook!
