Has anybody fished Holt Pool (opposite Top Barn) lately ?

Is the bailiff stillthe same miserable bloke who takes the money at Top Barn?

No, Dennis hasn't been bailif for years. Bill (the guy with the gun) does the job much better.

The stock is quite high in all 3 pools. I've fished there a few times over the years & only had 1 blank. Barbless hooks & no boilies (from memory)

A few may have gone, but it left more than enough at the time.

I used to fish it in the early 80s. It was a great venue until the owner, I think now deceased, doubled the price of the ticket and banned boilies :roll: :evil: . There were some nice fish but I also think they lost a some although a few years back now.

It isn't cheap at £7.50 per rod (unless you know the bailif really well :wink:) but fish it right & you'll only need the one rod.

 can vouch for bill being a top bloke, he is also amenable to a bit of beer money too lol (just means no ticket) :lol:

don't know about now but it was always a nice day out.

i didn't actually catch that fish in the first pic, i had left my boilie on a slab by the waters edge and the carp wriggled onto the slab and slurped it up.

i wish i had had a camcorder there cos it was hilarious, three of us were laughing so hard that he almost got the rod as well :lol:
