I'd say see what dates are on offer first Les.....

I'm still keen to investigate Naseby a little more....... I suspect we'd get lots more space there, chance of a big cat could be much the same (very difficult over one weekend), but I'm inspired by the 'unknow' potential of the big non-comercial* type waters. Also £20 for a 24hr ticket is a little different to £40 for 24hrs.

* I know its now run as a comercial fishery, but has only been so during recent years, and was never dug/designed as a fishery. Also the catfish themselves are a mystery as to origins ect... Adds to the excitment a little for me.

Naseby looks like a good go to me*... don't mind what I catch, if its big enough to take four Donkey choker pellets or half a tin block of luncheon meat, if its not a cat then I'll likely venture to have a new Carp PB !


* That's Welsh for 'cheap'**

** No, seriously, looks good.

I liked Elphicks - pretty keen on Beaver Farm too for that matter - just that I thought there was more chance of more active support from other members if we were to make the sacrifice of venturing north of the M25 a little way away from warm comfy civilisation towards the unknown....
If you want to do Elphicks or Beaver again, ten minutes after fall out of bed away from me, then I am surely the last to be likely to say no !

I also agree with Mark about the element of the unknown potential of a big expanse....

That said, although its 93 acres there are only 80 pegs, which seems a bit odd until / unless you read the screed more closely, seems it may be fairly restricted to dam end for fishing with mud city and impossible access round most of the rest of it ?

I`m easy Windy , my only concern with Naseby would be the access , as I think it would be with Cakey , we both can`t walk to far these days , for me it`s arthritis and for Cakey , well he`s just a lazy git:wh

I'm not much cop in the walking very far stakes either Les.... health isn't what it was for any of us. Except for Hewitt, who still has the physique of a lesser Titan. You'd never know he was 68. Let's just lean against each other and Cakey can use us as a rod rest ;).

Seriously tho, let's see what Mark says about the place after doing his recce.

Venue wise I'm really not fussy, just so long as we decide on one within the next week or else time starts to run out if we hope to attract others to join us.

Especially during August which is still school holiday time. Mind you, it might be a good weekend to introduce a junior member of the family or so to the joys of fishing ?.
