Fishery bailiff

The bailiff has the right at any time to search any bags or equipment if need be without explanation and can order any person off the fishery without explanation at any time.  There will be no refunds given (Revised rules April 2020).  

Bailiff means owner or such person put in charge of pools for the day. 

Note anglers have been banned from the fishery – for throwing down litter, for ignoring the radio ban, for using barbed hooks and unspecified baits and for ignoring signs.
