In this most extraordinary of years, we have reluctantly decided to depart from another historical norm - phone wars for next season’s bookings taking place on the last Sunday of January.

Instead, Les’s phone line will be open for bookings, and no doubt ringing all day without interruption, a month later than normal - from 10am on Sunday 28th February. We hope the extra month will allow people just a little more certainty about the year ahead, and that all bookings will be secured and accepted with more confidence they can be honoured in full and that fishing, and life more generally, will be back closer to normality by the time the season opens again at Redmire in June 2021. If things change in the next 6 weeks then we will adapt, but please put Sunday 28th February in your diaries, cancel all other plans (!), get your loved ones on standby to call for you too, because as always it’s a war out there and only the fastest fingers and most dexterous digits will win - good luck to you all!

Investment to maintain Redmire Pool and improve the fishing has continued throughout 2019 and 2020. However, given the year everyone has endured, a decision has been taken not to increase prices for the coming season. This means that prices to fish Redmire have been maintained at the same level for the fourth year running. Enquiries for these dates will be taken on +44 (0) 1989 770703 (please note that bookings will NOT be taken on Les Bamford's mobile number or by email) The prices are as follows:
