new member first fish at Shepherds Way

Category : Fishery Reports

I caught this carp at Shepherds Way on 9/4/17. My tackle was 5lb mainline with 3.6lb hook line on a size 16 hook, i hooked the carp in its bottom lip. The bait was 1 piece of tiny corn and a maggot, it took 15 minutes to land due to me worrying about line snapping.
For a fairly new angler I was very pleased with myself.

The carp weighed 15lb

Swim clearing at the Spinney Blunham

Category : Fishery Reports

Stuart, Rob, Melv and John have now cleared 10 swims on this venue, this is proving to be a good winter fishery. I have had reports of human waste on this venue, can I remind members that this should be bagged & taken home with you, or buried and not left for someone else to clear up.

Many thanks to Stuart & his team for all their hard work over the last few weeks, which has made this fishery fishable again.
