Sometimes a week can feel like a really long time - especially when your waiting for news. So as the title tells you - our good news is that the roach which the EA took away from Kingfisher last week to test for disease and parasites passed their tests with flying colours.
So weather (ice) permitting - the EA will be netting again on the 28th of Feb and moving a couple of thousand roach into Drinkwater Park Lake. A good head of silvers in Drinkies will make it worthwhile fishing again, especially as there are still some of the big tench, carp and bream left in there to throw up the odd surprise.
For those of you who are thinking of giving it a try, here's some Drinkies fish I had last winter fishing hemp and caster. Fishing should be pretty good once the new stock gets acclimatised.
Our AGM is Tuesday the 15th - sorting out a calendar of summer matches is on the agenda - so we can raise some ££££ for more improvements.
