Hey Jimpy,

 

Thanks for that, I went to my local tackle shop yesterday and purchased a season ticket. £22 for the rest of the year. Some of the waters you mention do not feature in the booklet but I will be sure to find out.

 

Anyone interested in planning a trip please post.........

I think junior member refers to how few posts you have made and not to someones age, once mat has made over a certain No of posts i think he will be promoted to senior or something similar.

I may be wrong in saying that tho :unsure::unsure::)

Well all as Promised I visited Fir Tree Fisheries @ Appley Bridge.

There were 5 waters there.

The first had a big sign that read "here where the big boys live so you have to be over 18 and have an unhooking mat) I was about to go and start but then noticed that it was actually £10 to fish this pond (as opposed to £6 to fish the other 4)

I arrived at 6:30 in the heavy rain and then chose a peg. Within 10 mins I had my first ever common carp (about 1lb) I continued to fish pulling more of these in including a few bream. I then hooked my first ever chub of about 2 1/2lb- CHUFFED. The rain was on and off all day i.e. one minute it was hot enough to get a tan and maybe have a quick dip, next it has hail stoning..............

Anyway finished off at 2:30 and went over to the BIG BOYS lake where I saw a chap land a fish of around 15lb.

All in all great place - very clean - nicely laid out. I will return in future but will check other waters out first.
