Bristol Water Fisheries operates an informal customer loyalty reward scheme for pike fishing on Chew Valley Lake. The scheme is affectionately named the Golden Ticket.
The scheme has been established year on year since the start of pike fishing on Chew Valley Lake and we thank all those loyal customers on the scheme for their part in the development of world class pike fishing at Chew.
The scheme supports our sustainable pike fishing approach and the number of people on this informal scheme has grown over the years. The scheme increases the relative proportion of experienced pike handlers on the lake that the fishery trusts to help protect the pike stocks.
As the number of scheme members has grown, the overall ticket allocation to the scheme has also grown! This has made it harder for the fishery to maintain equitable access in our pike fishing offering. For this reason the scheme is now closed to new members and the entitlement to individual members has been reduced.
