As the land owners, the Bute Park Management Team do not give permission for people to magnet fish in Bute Park.
The latest legislation is given here: https://www.anchormagnets.com/blogs/news/magnet-fishing-guide-2022
Given the possible dangers involved, we do not agree to magnet fishing on our waterways. Some magnet fishers have retrieved dangerous objects including sharp pieces of metal, unexploded ordnance, etc. so this activity is not one we encourage here.
