Continuing with the solo work party theme, I was to be found this week preparing the Bulls Lock Fishery for the opening of the river season on the 16th June. Like any natural river fishery, the vegetation had grown significantly since the warmer weather had arrived. Not to be deterred, I highlighted the five available swims on this very small fishery, and set about clearing them enough to allow easy access, but still giving plenty of cover for the angler.
You will see from the photos below, that some of the photos are the view of the swim from the footpath. The other photos are the anglers view of the river. All of the swims will work well for trotting a stick float, or fishing on the bottom with a feeder or lead.
This fishery is really worth a visit if you have not tried it yet. I am sure you will be pleasantly surprised by what it has to offer you.
