A huge thank you to everyone who took part in our charity fishing match in aid of Swans & Friends Bird Rescue! The match took place last Saturday on Centre Lake, and it was fantastic to see so many of you there supporting the cause!
Snake lake shall be closed for 2015 to carry out some maintenance work.
Sorry to all those who love fishing this lake but the improvements will make better conditions for all the stock and anglers to have a cracking 2016 year.
We hope our update finds you all well! Delighted to see a little sunshine brining more of you to the lakes!
So what’s been happening? The awful weather has given us a slow start to the year, however, things are now picking up. Snake was fishing beautifully at the weekend, the warm weather heated things up nicely and the recent club match, were delighted with the results. All other lakes are fishing well, but a little more sun will improve things no end!
