    I thought you might have read it wrong mate, hence the clarification. Low season I think you can get it for around £800.00. July isn't the best month to go. I know from experience that the high temps can be a killer but it was the only week they had free even though we booked it up ages ago. I'll be looking at May next year 😉😉😉

    It's £1,800.00 for lake exclusive so £300.00 each. Food package on top (about £120.00 each). Not the cheapest around I guess, but gets very good reviews. Looking forward to it and taking an extra "heavy duty" set up with me to have a go at the big cats

    I'd love to either catch a 30 out of White Cottage or the elusive Koi. It only comes out once a year so would be an achievement. Often see it silently cruising around...usually followed by a couple of mid double Commons. Off to France in July with 5 mates. Would be nice to catch a 40 but not the end of the world if I don't.

    Kids are getting me an Anker for my birthday next week..... 😂

    Your favourite capture

    Well documented on here, but this is my most important capture......my first "White Cottage" fish after 15 months of blanks, blanks, blanks without so much as a beep!! Caught in January of last year, 27lbs. Not my biggest, but certainly meant the world to me.
  7. Good shout. Looking at these on Amazon now. £4.95 for 10. Might just order a pack of 4's and 6's.
  8. Off to France in July, Lake rule is barbless only. Any recommendations for good ones. Bottom baits and pop ups preferably size 4, may go up to a 6. Help much appreciated.

    bait boat

    I used a cheaper one than that in France two years ago Dayvid and it did the job. It's still going strong in the hands of its new owner. I wouldn't have used it over here though as I'd have been laughed off of the lake, but on a lake exclusive in France??? ...................Didn't care 😉

    Last trip of the year

    Out today, 1st time in ages. Water level back to "normal" and a few new fish put in over the last few weeks. Fingers crossed.

    Luncheon meat alternative

    I'll be trying these out in France in the Summer. Some big cats on the water we're visiting....
  13. Hate fishing in the dark so no overnighters for me until about March. Can't be doing with sitting in the dark for 14 hours plus.

    2 or 3 rods

    My regular water allows 3 rods, and I'll use them more often than not. Another water nearby has a 2 rod rule. I never feel "disadvantaged" when I fish there.

    Have a look at the Lake Reaper. I have one and it does the job, although I only use it in France. About £300.00 new.
  16. Week-end result from our local angling club........... Here is the result of our latest match fished at a very sunny Hexden where the water was gin clear and a bright day meant the fish were very hard to catch. 1st. Joyce Blackwell 1lb.9oz. 2nd.P.Bailey 1lb.3oz. 3rd. C.Pagan 14oz. 4th. C.Hitchens 6oz.5th B.Puttur 2oz. 6th. B.David 1oz. The next match is on Sunday 14/10/18 at Normanhurst and is the 2nd half of the Pete Treadgold trophy match ,so please note the lake will be closed to other anglers on that date, thanking you for your cooperation It's a good job B. David's maggot hadn't dropped off. 😲😲😁

    October Catch Reports

    Not sure if there are any Cats in that lake. Can find out. All I know is that I have never had a run like that before. Had some that have really taken off, but this one was different. The line gave up above the swivel so I lost the lot. I've never had that happen before.

    Got to be honest, the two that we caught, (my mate Darren had a 21lb'er), were both in pristine condition. But we have a lake locally with residents just as you describe, so I avoid that one like the plague.

    Or when he had a perfectly formed tail which he happened to swish around when the camera shutter went???

    October Catch Reports

    Unlucky timing!! He was a lively so & so! Also had a run that almost melted my baitrunner, don't think I've ever had one like it! Lifted into it and SNAP!! No chance
