Small increase in prices to reflect the quality and the increased size of the fish
With 3 known fish 25-28lbs and lake records expecting to be broken again this year, we are definitely going in the right direction! The increase will also help go towards the recent swim revamp, increased Cotswold stone, this is to prevent the wear and tear of the swims in prolonged wet periods.
(one to two pics of the new swims to follow!)

March Pairs Competition 2012
The ‘March Pairs Competition’ took place over 48 hours, giving anglers just one night to settle into their swim. The fishing was tough and the recent changes in weather and amount of pressure on the water meant the fish weren’t on the feed as much as usual and it took some doing to get on the leader board.
Congratulations to the prize winners and all those who took part, an enjoyable 30hours had by all and great sportsmanship.
