Pond Dipping

CLICK HERE for a PDF of the above image.

We have a selection of pond dipping equipment and reference materials so that you can try to identify what you have caught.

Please refer to our Prices for details of cost.

The costs for hiring the equipment are a one off cost for the duration of your stay at Patshull.

This activity is carried out by the group making the booking and the leaders in charge remain responsible for supervision of the activity. All equipment must be returned to stores before leaving site at the end of your stay.

Leaders wanting to undertake this activity should arrange a site visit to view the areas where pond dipping can be carried out. The stream approaching the pond is shallow and safe to walk in (with wellies) whilst the pond areas have a very soft, silty bed in which it is easy to get stuck. For safety reasons pond dipping in this area should be done from the bank.

Patshull Activity Centre instructors are not available for this activity.
