In previous years we have allowed you to bring your own rowing boat for any fish that get weeded up, but only from June onwards, as before they just are not needed.

There are several boats on site that Ru, the bailif, has access to if needed.

It is planned that you will still be able to bring your own boats as in previous years, if this changes it will be on the website.

On Kingfisher lake you are allowed boats all year, not just to land fish but to bait up as well.

This year we (last 6 months) we have been treating with a new biological weed treatment. It has had an effect,but does take time.

All the swims are really well defined, by large trees, bushes, undergrowth etc. All as mentioned, each swim has a board showing that swims water.

Anyone fishing into another anglers water WILL be asked to leave.....

Absolute rubbish mate, there is plenty of room between swims, the water you can fish is clearly marked on a board at the back of each swim. Loads of water to each swim .
Boats are only allowed later on in the year when the weed really gets up, have a look on their site, it'll tell you on there.

There seems to be a lot of stories about people fishing your water from opposite with their bait boats, and people setting up right next to you because there are no defined swims.

Is this true? And if so are the baliffs on hand to resolve things like this?

Perhaps someone from abbey would like to clarify what the rules are on using boats are to free weeded fish and I was also recommended after being there for six days that they recommend using mainline braid by the baliff didn't say that on the website either perhaps it has been updated now I'm not sure

Don't think you'll be allowed to use boats that early in the year, no need anyway. A pair of chesties is essential though imo. 20kg is more than enough boilies, hemp/red band/maize etc with a bit of something yellow on the hook I've never needed an echo sounder.
Love the place, shame is so expensive now
