Island Lake Ticket Purchase Information

                                                           IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON DAY TICKETS DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

During this pandemic period we are only selling 23 hour tickets which will run from 9am until 8am the following day at a cost of £20 per ticket. These will be sold as day tickets with no seperate night tickets available. This is to reduce overall angler numbers and interaction at the 'normal' change-over times. You must strictly not enter the car park before 9am on the morning the ticket starts and you must have packed up and left the car park before 8am the following day. There is no 1 hour's grace period for looking round or packing away.

Obviously if you wish to only fish the day or night that is fine as long as you strictly adhere to the timings above.

If you have pre-purchased tickets for and are fishing a session of more that 24 hours then you can remain on the water for the additional hour between change overs but must have left by 8am on the final morning.

Tickets must be purchased individually unless you are members of the same household. Tickets are only sold through the shop on the website and are subject to availability and acceptance of the new Covid-19 rules as provided on the Landing Page,  in addition to all Theale Fisheries Rules and Codes of Conduct available to view on this website.

 The above information regarding ticket timings, access and cost superceeds the information provided below. All other information, rules, codes of conduct and terms and conditions still apply.


Island Lake Day Ticket (2 rods maximum)

Day tickets and night tickets must be purchased in advance from our shop on this web-site; they cannot be purchased on the bank.

We do not allow non-fishing guests; anyone on the lake must have a valid ticket or prior permission. Anyone found on the Fishery without a ticket or prior permission will have to leave.

Strictly no fishing without a ticket; anyone fishing without a ticket will be banned from all Theale Fisheries property.

Day tickets are valid from 7am till 7pm and night tickets from 7pm till 7am.

We allow a maximum of a one hour period before tickets start or after tickets finish for you to look round / set-up or pack away (drying time); this is not fishing time and rods should not be in the water. Should you wish to be on the Fishery before or after these times you will need to purchase additional tickets.

Tickets are non-transferable; all tickets must be purchased in the name and address of the person fishing.

Tickets are non-returnable and non-refundable; however in certain circumstances, at the complete discretion of Theale Fisheries, and with at least 48 hours prior notice refunds may be made but due to changes in PayPal's Refund Policy these will now incur a 10% refund fee.

Purchase of a ticket is an acceptance of all Theale Fisheries terms and conditions, rules and codes of conduct.

As well as your Paypal receipt you will receive an Website Order Notification email containing  a link to a PDF ticket with the gate code. We ask you to print off your Website Order Notification as proof of purchase of your ticket(s) and your PDF ticket with the gate code on it. Should you purchase a ticket on the day (before entering the fishery) via your mobile device or do not have a printer the bailiffs will accept the electronic Website Order Notification as proof of purchase but please ensure your device has sufficient battery to display the information otherwise you will be regarded as fishing without a ticket.

Day Ticket - 7am till 7pm  £ 12.00 Night Ticket - 7pm till 7am  £ 12.00        

Junior anglers under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult (over 18). This adult may be fishing on their own ticket, in which case the junior may occupy an adjacent swim, or in a non-fishing supervisory role. Adults in a supervisory role only do not require a ticket but must complete the accompaniment form and so will be bound by Theale Fisheries terms and conditions, rules and codes of conduct. We do not offer concessionary rates but two juniors may fish with one rod each in the same swim, subject to the above accompaniment terms.

There are 15 swims on Island Lake but ticket sales are restricted to a maximum of 8 on any given day / night.
