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

 

 

 

MATCH FEES FOR 2019 ARE £7-50 PER PEG

PLEASE NOTE THAT DUE TO CHANGES IN BANKING PROCEDURES,

ONLY CHEQUES MADE PAYABLE TO

"MESSINGHAM SANDS MATCH ANGLING"

 CAN NOW BE ACCEPTED

 

Match Rule Change from April 2014

It has become apparent that anglers are having difficulties sourcing suitable floats with an above surface portion not exceeding 8mm diameter. In order to stay in line with modern float design and still remain outside of the large self hooking float techniques, the maximum above water diameter of floats allowable has been increased from 8mm to 12mm. The total shotting capacity will remain the same, i.e. 12 grams

To clarify this, the above water (i.e.visible) portion of  all waggler type floats may not exceed 12mm in diameter.

 

 

FISHERY PELLETS

DISABLED ANGLER FACILITIES

Disabled persons toilets are available at the main building on our site.

Pegs suitable for disabled anglers are now available on the North day ticket, The Oak Tree and two purpose built pegs are available with an access ramp at Merry's Pool.
