School Holidays - Kids Fish for a Fiver (Monday to Friday)
The school holidays are upon us and many parents will be wanting to keep their children entertained over the 6 week period.
We always want to encourage children out into the countryside, so why not bring them fishing for a day at Upper Farm Coarse Fishery just outside Chinnor, Oxfordshire.
It’s probably one of the cheapest things that you can do during the school holidays and for just £5 your child can fish the lake from 8am to 8pm. Under 14's need to be supervised by an adult, so even if you don’t want to fish yourself, you can come down and enjoy the tranquility and beauty of the lake. Why not bring a picnic and make a day of it. The lake also has free fast WiFi so that you can stay connected on social media, post pictures of your child’s catches, or stream TV shows and films from Amazon Prime, Netflix, etc.
If your child has never fished before and would like to give it a try, then we have fishing equipment available for hire from Trinity Outdoors, our onsite fishing and camping shop. Emma who owns the shop can provide some basic instruction and guidance for first timers.
Fishing Rod, Reel and Line
£10 for 1 days hire of the above.
The only extras your child will need if hiring fishing equipment is a pack of hooks (around £2), a float (around £1) and some maggots (£1.99).
Not sure??? Why not pop in and see us for a friendly chat and some advice and take a look around our wonderful facilities.
Environment Agency Permits
All children aged 11 years and under do not need a license to be able to fish.
However, if your child is aged between 12 and 16, then they will require a Junior Trout & Coarse Fishing Permit. These are free of charge for 12 to 16 year olds and can be obtained from the Post Office website. Further details can be found at http://www.postoffice.co.uk/rod-fishing-licence
Hopefully we’ll see you soon.
