Welcome To Burton Mutual Angling Association
Access at Hanson's - Oddstone's and Coton
All members please be aware that Hanson's have had to close the access to the fishing lakes as of 27th March due to the increased erosion in some areas which has occured since the bank collapse and flooding problems.
We have been informed that a contractor will be on site from tomorrow to install some fencing.
We hope that we are then able to repoen the fishery.
At present Hansons have I have put one of their locks on the gates to prevent access.
Fly fishing - 2017
BMAA – Fly fishing section (2017 SEASON)
For the second year of our fly section re-launch we are extending the number of fisheries where we rent rods to two.
We have reached an arrangement with the established local venues listed below.
1. Blithfield Reservoir (16th March - Thursday 16th November)
We have purchased permits to fish at Blithfield. The cost to an existing member is £50 which will allow up to 15 days fishing with a 2-fish limit, followed by catch and release. We have a limit of 25 members who can join this option.
Boat charges for BMAA members are £22 for a full day or £14.50 for a four hour (start any time)
2. Foremark reservoir (1st March - 30th November)
We have purchased permits to fish at Foremark. The cost to an existing member is £50 which will allow up to 6 days fishing with a 1-fish limit, followed by catch and release. We have a limit of 25 members who can join this option.
Members when using one of your purchased permits have the option to hire a boat at our Foremark members rates Full Day Boat £15.00 (Usual rate £24.50) or Part Day Boat £11.00 (usual rate £15.00) as additional saving.
If you wish to join please send your payment to our PO Box address below:
PO BOX 7909
BURTON UPON TRENT
You will receive a fly fishing permit and your details will be advised to Blithfield/Foremark reservoir - you will also be given a GUIDE and a telephone number so that you can book a day's fishing, once you have had your day, you can book another - all the cost is covered by your permit unless you wish to hire a boat - you would have to pay separately for boat hire.
You would of course also have to have paid your yearly subs for 2017/18 season, we are now taking payments in advance of the paying in nights for members wishing to pay early and commence with their fly fishing.
Hope this answers your questions
