Ron,
I'd happily join you sometime. Shift work means that midweek is usually fine by me. I've also got a hankering for chasing some tench at another water you seem to like, Alderfen.

Now you`re really talking :thumbs:

I`ve been fancying a go on Alderfen ever since I took a look at their website.

I've been tempted by Alderfen for a couple of years now. Shift work means that I'd be Billy no mates if I went midweek but I'm not too keen on the weekend hordes! Bit of a catch 22 really.:eek:;):D
I'm quite happy to go anywhere that's not dodgy, provided that there's something worth catching. Barbel, carp, bream, tench or even lumpy perch, roach or rudd. However, if there's too high a chance of catching nowt and being Billy for a few days, I can stick with my local haunt and save on petrol.;)

I'll go with the flow, BUT if SWMBO decides to fish I hope there are some carp there or my life won't be worth living:eek:

Up to mid-doubles in the carp lake, will that keep her happy?

In the specimen lake, tench over 8 lbs, rudd over 3, roach to just under 3, double- figure bream and large perch and crucians, with a low stock of
carp to double figures. According to their website.

Ron told me there is good tench fishing in the match lake too.

I'd love to have done this but I'll be down in Devon bass fishing during the week and I doubt my visa from 'er indoors will still be valid. But have a great time, folks

Is this still a runner, as the thread has been dormant for some time, if it is who is thinking of going and what days/nights?
