Purchasing a Season Ticket is a cost efficient way to fish at Bury Hilll; as a general rule, you will only need to visit
10 times before seeing a saving. Season tickets purchased before June 16th do not include the cost of fishing during the
old close season period i.e. March 15th to June 15th inclusive, although privileges will apply once a season ticket has
been purchased. We also offer a Predator Ticket, which commences with the start of our predator season running from
October 1st to March 14th; these tickets are again limited and offer the use of two rods.
When applying for a season ticket, the following privileges apply:
The right to fish Old Bury Hill, Milton and Bonds Lakes from sunrise to sunset daily, with the exception of Christmas
Day when the fishery is closed.
Access to the fishery from sunrise Monday to Friday, and first entry at weekends and bank holidays, i.e. before day
ticket anglers but not before the arrival of the bailiff. Under no circumstances should you enter the fishery before
the arrival of the bailiff at weekends or bank holidays.
The opportunity to bring one paying guest; however you must purchase a day ticket for your guest when the fishery
opens at 7.30am. This is your responsibility and not your guest’s.
The above privileges are effective once your season ticket has been purchased, which includes the period
March 15th - June 15th, when a day ticket for the correct number of rods must be purchased.

SPECIMEN CARP MEMBERSHIP
Bury Hill’s Specimen Carp Membership is a group of experienced like minded anglers who have exclusive
use of Temple Lake as well as being able to night fish the Old Lake.
Membership numbers are strictly limited and available only to adults aged over 18; however juniors aged 12 and over may
join under a shared membership with a nominated adult with whom they must fish at all times. All anglers applying to
join will be carefully vetted to ensure that they have the necessary equipment and experience to handle big fish.
Membership runs on an annual basis from January 1st to December 31st. The annual membership fee is £50
for adults and £75 for a shared adult and junior membership, with fishing charges being paid additionally each time you
fish (see charges below).
Successful applications will be from anglers able to prove that they are mature and responsible, with experience of
catching and safely handling big carp (ie 20 lb-plus). Once membership has been confirmed, you will receive a membership
card showing your photograph and membership number.
You will need to quote your membership number when making a booking and carry your card with you at all
times when fishing, as anyone unable to produce their card will not be permitted onto any of the waters. Members wanting
to renew their membership for the following year will have first refusal to rejoin within the allotted timescale, subject
to membership being invited.
