Children under the age of 12 should be accompanied by an adult and junior members are asked, in the interests of safety, to be accompanied by adults on the more remote waters.

DAYTICKETS – Daytickets are available but membership is always recommended, particularly to the junior anglers who can benefit from membership of the Association and can receive coaching and prizes for angling proficiency. Daytickets are not allowed on the Bickershaw Specimen Lake as there are rules on having the right tackle (e.g. large landing nets, unhooking mats, no braided line, etc).  Anglers not having the right tackle will be asked to leave our waters. Day tickets are no longer available for Pennington Flash where a Leigh and District licence is needed.
