    Default Wensum fish-in, anyone?

    Every year, I have a weekend on the Wensum at Taverham Mill with a few mates. Usually a couple of weeks after the start of the season.

    The great thing about Taverham isn't the fishing - though it's not bad - but the accommodation on site and the sheer beauty of the place. I'd love to extend the invitation for the weekend to my FM friends, as I did last year.

    Take a look at the website for Taverham Mill - and let me know if you could be up for it. Also, your preferred weekend or, if you'd prefer (and it's a good move, as the place can be popular) midweek dates.

    You'll have to cough up for the accommodation but I'll run the traditional barbecue.

    Looks a great spot Mark, only problem would be the 350 mile round trip, unless I could persuade my wife (fine weather catcher) to go. I think it's just too far for me.

    It's only 15 mins bus ride to Norwich - send her shopping! No, seriously, I understand. That's the main reason I've been to no FM fish-ins, which are usually 350 miles south or north.

    That would be excellent; so, we meet at last Bond....

    I'm looking at 26 -28 June (Wednesday-Friday) at the moment. As I say, midweek avoids the inevitable weekend rush. If anyone has an overriding reason why they can't take a couple of days off work, and has to fish the weekend, I'll switch to 28 to 30. But I'd rather not.

    Roll up, roll up.

    I'm sure I'd be able to make a day at least, it's only 20 miles for me. Probably 26th and/or 27th, (28th wife's birthday)

    That's great, Andy. There will be two or three of my mates there, so I think I now need to ensure we have some rooms and fishing booked. I'm going to go for 26 to 28 June (Two nights) in the full understanding that not everyone will want to stay both of them.

    So now I need to know who is going to stay:
    26th June
    27th June
    Both nights
    26th day ticket
    27th day ticket

    Please take a look at the Taverham Mill website and appraise yourself of the rules; night fishing, for example, is only allowed if you have a season ticket or are paying for accommodation (which does seem to rather negate the purpose of paying for accommodation!).

    If I can get a quick idea of possible numbers, I can get some rooms reserved.

    Hi Mark, I won't be needing accomodation...... Hotel Van de Combo or home... looking forward to it!
