Sorry I have not fished it, my only knowledge is from Tim Paisley's articles and book chapters on it.

 

It can be hired by anglers or fished on a day ticket, then there is a winter syndicate from memory.

The fish can be seen, but can be very cute and almost uncatchable at times. An otter fence has been built around it, protecting the lake and stock ponds, and there is a long term ongoing stocking programme that Mr. Paisley has set up with friends and the owners.

The lake is very full of history and memories for him.

Thanks-I’ve always loved Tim’s session writing, particularly the original ‘From the Bivvy’ where he documents his Birch expeiences. 

I’ve just joined the winter syndicate having never fished it before. I was curious about any forum members’ more recent experiences.

Digging an old thread up here, how did you get on? 

Just dropped out. I only managed 2 nights in 2 years! To be honest, it wasn’t really for me. Lovely little water with a good ongoing stocking policy and facilities but just didn’t float my boat. Hard to put my finger on it but I was never excited by fishing there and at my age I’m not fishing anywhere which doesn’t give me a real buzz!
