Mentieth anchor rules

A quick reminder for those fishing Mentieth this year; only certain types of anchor are allowed.

Suitable anchors are Bruce and Danforth style with a maximum weight for this type of “front” anchor of 7kg or 16lb. alternatively the use of clump or mud anchors will still be allowed however they must also conform to certain standards. The preferred option by the fishery is to use CLEAN 5 Litre containers filled with concrete. However large dense weights or buckets that are completely filled level with concrete will be allowed. There will be no weight restrictions on these and the denser and smaller the better they will work.

Not Allowed
The Fisherman, Grapnel and Plough style
Anglers must provide their own anchors, the fishery will not.
