Useful Info

Booking On At Old Mill

To book yourself on at Old Mill, please call us on 07767 363545. Please be aware payment is required in advance to confirm your booking and this is taken over the phone by card payment. You are welcome to call for availability on the day you plan to fish and pay on the bank. No refunds given, if cancellation occurs at least 7 days prior to your session commencing, then you can re-schedule it for another time. Please note that sessions can only be re-scheduled once and must be within the calendar year. Please ensure that you are familiar with the rules prior to angling.

Birch

The jewel of the Old Mill complex, Birch represents more of a challenge to the angler, but what rewards there are to be had for your effort! Birch contains multiple 40lb+ specimen carp with Common Carp to 50lb+ and Mirror Carp to 51lb+.  In addition there are an impressive number of 30lb+ fish present and we estimate that this year up to 60-65 in total could get through this weight (46 confirmed to date). Though Birch can be a challenge, talented anglers have previously been able to catch on most visits, though equally, don’t be surprised if you go half a dozen or more sessions without a fish!

Memberships are priced as a one off £50 fee. Please enquire about availability as we do like to keep numbers fairly limited, so cannot guarantee that memberships are available at all times.
