RYLEYS POOL

IMPORTANT – Following an outbreak of Carp Herpes Virus (KHV) at one of our waters in 2021, it is very important that members fishing here (and at our other still water pools) use the disinfectant net dip tanks now provided. These must be used before and after fishing. Drying wet nets/unhooking mats at home after use (in the open air and preferably in full sunshine) is a further good precaution against unwittingly passing on this nasty disease to other places.

This set of pools is located on your left on the road from Hodnet to Weston under Redcastle, as marked with an ‘X’ on map below.

It’s a mature water consisting of two linked pools, and has been run by the club for over 30 years.

There are a total of 24 pegs of which 7 have been fully adapted for wheelchair users – to include access from the road to the pegs. This work was done with the aid of a grant from the National Lottery.

Depths range from a constant 3 feet in the upper pool to between 3 and 7 feet in the lower pool.

The pools have been well stocked with a variety of species, but have no chub or pike.
