Following the Prime minister’s ‘road map’ announcement yesterday, we can confirm that we are going to open Rutland, Grafham, Pitsford and Ravensthorpe waters for Fly fishing for Trout from bank and boat from the 1st of April. Boat fishing will be for either single anglers or two anglers, but not three anglers sharing until further notice.
Based on the ‘road map’ the fishing lodges will be unable to open until April the 12th at the earliest, so all boats booked between the 1st of April and the 11th of April will need to be pre-paid at the point of booking, the same as how we operated for much of last season. However as we are currently busy in the process of renewing our 2020 customer’s season tickets, we are currently suspending taking any bookings for boats between these dates as we would like to complete the process of renewing our season ticket holders first, we estimate this process will be completed by March the 14th. If you are a 2020 season ticket holder and have not been contacted yet, please be patient.
Therefore we will open the phone lines on all waters for April 1st-11th bookings from Monday the 15th of March and we will take full payment at the point of booking for any boats booked between these dates. Any existing boats booked in for these dates will be honoured and the customer will be contacted for payment from the 15th of March. In the meantime, if you would like to book a boat beyond April the 11th please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the phonelines are open please ring the lodge direct you wish to book the boat at, with the exception of Ravensthorpe, their boats will need to be booked through Pitsford fishing lodge until the water opens on the 1st of April.
*As there is some flexibility within the roadmap, if the shop opening is delayed we may have to re-evaluate some of these dates*
Anyone who was not a 2020 season ticket holder, but would like to purchase a season ticket, or has questions about purchasing one please email the retail manager at natkins2@Anglianwater.co.uk
We are hoping you are looking forwards to the start of what should be a fantastic season, tight lines.
