Being away for most of October I was waiting for a confirmed date and it looks like we should be back for the 31st (thank you Alfred E Nueman - aka Golum and Stingray) so please put me down for a probable. Didn't want to miss my first fish'in in 9 years
I suggest we meet between 9am and 10 at the North car park which is situated on the road between Upper Boddington and Byfield. There isn’t an accurate postcode for it?
If you are approaching from Upper Boddington it will be on your right.
From Byfield, the left, beyond the sailing club car park.
There are no long walks involved but there are some steps or a ramp to get up to the bank. Not too strenuous...
Parking is free.
Day tickets are £7 or £4 OAP.
The pegs are all level concrete with steps down to them. There are 3 levels to sit on at different heights due to the rise and fall of the water level.
Average depth is 6’-8’ depending on water level.
What to bring?
Float and feeder gear mainly, good roach can be caught close in on waggler or whip.
Carp and tench on feeder, pellet waggler.
Pike to pike tactics.
Pole fishing is tricky unless the Ressie is full of water, I will check with the bailiff beforehand.
There are no food outlets on site, or anywhere near, so bring your own.
Hopefully the weather will be favourable. It can be quite windy there as it’s quite high up, so naturally
bring suitable attire.
