As we advertised on Facebook recently, last weekend we opened up the tackle shop and the grounds for local anglers to come and have a look around and chat with the Fishery Team.
We don’t mind admitting, we were a little unsure to the response we were going to get. But we really didn’t need to worry, as the number of visitors that we had was fantastic!! It really was great to see so many of you coming down to say hello, and we cant wait to hopefully see you all again when we open properly in February.
In other news, we had another successful stocking of fish from Andrew at AE Fisheries. This is always a nerve-wracking experience, as the fish are travelling for such a long time. But, as in April, Andrew did a brilliant job and all the fish swam off strongly as they were introduced to their new homes. Along with lots of beautiful rudd, we had a lovely mixture of small and large carp, with the big boys going into Raven Lake and most of the smaller fish going into Sunset.
Finally, we have set a new opening date for the first weekend in February. Hopefully the café will also be ready for this date, but even if it isn’t we will still be opening the lakes and the tackle shop full-time. As we draw closer to this date, we will of course be releasing more information.
