Welcome to Mid Northants Trout Fishers
COVID-19: All fisheries are now CLOSED
In light of the messaging around the importance of social distancing and the fact the safety of our customers and staff is the most important thing, we have had to make the extremely difficult decision to temporarily close our parks and as a result all fly fishing activities on our waters will temporarily cease. These measures will be in place until further notice.
This is now with immediate effect for all bank and boat fishing at Rutland, Grafham, Pitsford, Ravensthorpe, Draycote, Eyebrook and Thornton.
We know this news is will be upsetting to some, but we know that it is the responsible and right thing to do.
COVID-19: Refund policy for Anglian Water fisheries
Season ticket holder announcement:
Firstly thank you for your patience whilst we closed our parks. We have now put in a procedure for compensating Season ticket holders for lost fishing time due to the Coronavirus lockdown.
When we re-open, all season ticket holders will be entitled to a refund on all the fishing time lost due to the lockdown (pro-rata). We will calculate this by dividing the cost of your ticket by 48 (the season is 48 weeks) and then by multiplying it against the no of weeks lost. No action will be needed to be taken by Season ticket holders right now, as this refund would be completed once the parks re-open and staff are able to return to the shops.
Multi-stage payment customers who have been ‘setup’:
Your payments have all been put on hold. Only a handful of customers have made their first ‘staged’ payment and we are aware of these. Once the parks re-open we will re-setup your stage payments with new future dates and reduced payments to allow for the compensation set out above.
Multi-stage payment customers who haven’t been set-up:
We will not contact you to setup your payments until the parks open again. We will then setup your payments taking into account the above compensation.
We want to make it clear that our plan is to carry on stocking fish as per our plan whilst the parks remain in lockdown, as long as the farmers are able to supply us with fish.
We hope that this will put our customer’s minds at rest, but if anyone is unsatisfied with this response, or feels they need more information please feel free to contact us by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to deal with your query quickly.
Please remember our lodges are currently closed so contact is preffered by email
Take care and stay safe 🎣
We are one of the oldest fly fishing clubs in the country having started in 1952 to improve trout fishing in the area for local people. Our thriving club helps anglers of all experience levels to catch more fish, more often.
We are fortunate to have some excellent reservoir trout fishing facilities in and around Northamptonshire. We have 10 or 11 competitions every year; monthly new member and improver sessions during Spring, Summer and Autumn; weekly social gatherings in a Northampton pub; and a Winter Programme with recognised guest speakers.
