Members should now have received a newsletter informing them that we now have access to the Duchy of Cornwall fishing on Dartmoor included in our subscription.
The new arrangement will permit all Association members to fish for all categories of fish on the Moor.
This will be on a trial basis for two years but the committee hopes it may lead to a permanent lease for us. The arrangement will require careful monitoring and may be subject to some changes in regulation as time goes by. We will be asking members to keep careful records of their number of visits and catches and we will be feeding all information back to the Duchy when catch returns are due in the autumn.
The committee are very pleased about the new fishing and our thanks must go to Tom Stratton, the Duchy Land Steward, who is also very keen for the link up to be a success.
Please ensure when fishing the moor that your membership card is carried at all times.
Members guest tickets will not be available but of course visitors may obtain a day ticket at a modest price from Duchy ticket agents.
Details of the fishery and a list of ticket agents can be found in the page menu under “Duchy fishing on Dartmoor”.
