    I’m literally salivating........ the thought of buggering off for 24hrs or more and not being couped up doing poxy school work etc.

    A lot of lakes are starting to open up, some already have. Annoyingly, those who operate as membership and day ticket waters are, in the main, opening for members only.

    Day ticket waters are running it as a book in advance and pay upfront system.

    A lot of waters, according to updates on their websites, are following guidance and saying there must be a minimum of 15m between anglers.

    I can’t wait to get my tackle out ! No change there then:biggrin:

    Think I might wait a bit though as I can imagine an initial stampede. May wait until the glorious 16th anyway.

    I really can not wait, I have been dreaming of going Barbel fishing, Trout, Carp and Course in that order but it would probably end up the other way around!

    Porn pure Porn:rolleyes:

    :lol:
    Yes I like lakes, but try and avoid the ones that look like they’ve just been dug by a JCB last week.


    The only matches you’ll likely see there are the ones you’d find in Barry’s back pocket. Pretty much a tackle tart/bivvy boy place

    I’ve only fished it 3 times but yes it is quite nice.

    One of my clients has just phoned me whilst walking her dog along the basingstoke canal, it overlooks Gold Valley and the bankside is already very full with anglers fishing.

    Think that's what they do anyway when they can't catch anything.

    I always got the impression fishing was an excuse to get away from the wife and kids for a bit. I considered it for a bit for that very reason then found I had better things to do of a weekend, like descaling the toilet or going and visiting the in laws.

    You’ve clearly never listened to my wife’s reply to the question “how was work today?”
