RE Walton Hall - I must have had my binoculars the wrong way around !!
Either that or the level was down a foot - very shallow !

Collwick Park confirmed for the 26/4/14 6 fish ticket not sure price for this year yet should be around £23 there will be no float tube launch fee to pay for BFTA members confirmed by the fishery manager.

Directions:-
Post code for the cafe at Colwick is NG2 4DG not far from the venue small breakfast (starter for DaveC) £4 large breakfast £5.

Directions for cafe from the road leading from the city centre is the roundabout just prior to the Virgin Media centre located on the right hand side of the roundabout you can see it from the road Daleside Cafe. For the fishery head past the Virgin media centre and carry straight on - the first sign for Colwick country park is NOT the entrance for fishing, carry on when you see the Toby Carvery at the second set of traffic lights after this turn right onto Mile End road, then take a right turn onto River Lane (small track) follow this round and you will see the ticket office where the barriers are.

Hello Gents,
I have spoken to Walton Hall and they are pleased to give us exclusive use for a comp on the 1st March. Please post if you are going to attend. It would be good if we can get another fishery in the north as a regular venue. Me and the little fellow will give it a go closer the date and check the local breakfast places for Mr C and I will post a report on the food.

Steve there was a roadside cafe wagon in a lay-bye just before the turning into the reservoir road last time I went. if so the sarnie will be a nice top up. as for the burger I am sure there is enough room in my tube for emergency rations if I throw some of my fly boxes out.

Ringstead is confirmed for August 16th.

Fished it last Saturday, bagged up just after lunch. Nice fish, 5 for 11lb. Stocking policy has been reviewed for this season with stocking now taking place fortnightly. Some bigger fish are being put in but fish over 10lb have to be returned.

The overall depth of Ringstead means that this is predominantly a floating line water. I went out with a floater only and took fish on a very small damsel and green buzzers.

The weed is being cut on a regular basis, some areas (near the lodge) have weed virtually up to the surface, this should be being cut this week. The Addington Road bank was clear, the deep corner is clear.

John the baliff is working hard to get Ringstead back on the trout fishing map and it would be nice if we can show him a bit of support for this one. sign up if you intend to come along.

£27.00 for 5 fish (includes launch fee)
