Rule Change for Hollywood Bowl

With regard to the new Lake at Hollywood.

We are seeing the same issues with lip damage on the smaller Carp at Hollywood Bowl as occurred in the early days of Merry`s Pool and Hollywood Strip Lake.

We attributed this damage at the time to the constant pricking of the fishes lips associated with the use of Method Feeders, i.e. smaller fish do not always hook themselves against the weight of the feeder and constant pricking of the lip tissue occurs.

 Although some anglers disagreed with the reasoning behind this at the time, the problem was solved after the ban was introduced and the fish recovered quickly.

This problem does not seem to occur with larger fish and we intend to ban the use of self hooking methods, specifically METHOD FEEDER, IN LINE FEEDERS and IN LINE BOMBS until we deem that the fish are up to the size where mouth damage does not occur.

All feeders and bomb rigs must now be free running and of the paternoster type, with a minimum 12 inch hooklength and a 2 inch paternoster length.

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS RULE ONLY APPLIES TO HOLLYWOOD BOWL.

Repeat

 THIS RULE ONLY APPLIES TO HOLLYWOOD BOWL.

RULE CHANGE JUNE 2019

AS A RESULT OF THE HUGE GROWTH  INCREASE IN BOTH SIZE AND NUMBERS OF CATFISH AND CARP IN THE DAY TICKET LAKES WE FEEL THAT IT IS NOW NECESSARY TO INCREASE THE MAXIMUM HOOK SIZE ALLOWABLE ON

THE NORTH LAKE, SOUTH LAKE AND THE OAK TREE POND

 TO A SIZE 6,

THIS FALLS IN LINE WITH THAT ON THE SYNDICATE LAKES

 PLEASE NOTE THAT THE MAXIMUM SIZE HOOK ON ALL OF THE MATCH LAKES WILL REMAIN SIZE 10

 



 

Syndicate Lakes

 

 Membership for 2019/2020 is now OPEN.

Winter Tickets are now available

this will cover the membership fee up to

In order to maintain the high quality of the membership structure we will implement a zero tolerance policy for rule breakers. This will effectively weed out any problem anglers should the need arise.

We will continue to promote junior anglers by allowing membersí sons/daughters between the ages of 10 to 15 inclusive to fish free of charge when in the company of the parent member. However this will be limited to a single, previously nominated child. We will require 2 passport sized photographs of the child in order that a joint membership can be issued.
