New for 2018!
In an effort to engage more with our customers, in season 2018 we will publish an online survey for customers to complete. We hope that this will give our department more information on how we can improve your visits to our waters. We urge all of our customers to complete this survey as honestly and as accurately as possible. Further announcements will be made on this survey in the near future.
Prices for season 2018 have now been published. Our prices and ticket offerings are subject to change at discretion of Bristol Water Fisheries. We are keen to get a more accurate picture of our customers’ needs and we hope that our survey will be able to supply us with some of this valuable information.
Bristol Water Fisheries are genuinely open to new suggestions such as offering new ticket options if the angling community believes that this is beneficial to the angling community as well as in best interests of providing a financial stable future for Bristol Water Fisheries.
