I have spent two short sessions at the Speringbrook Sewer fishery recently, to start the swim preparations for the glorious 16th.
This fishery is always a little daunting when no work has been done until June, because of the rate the vegetation grows at this time of year. I have managed to create clear access to the fishery, so anglers can park their cars safely off the road. I have also prepared five swims as of the 13th June.
This swims on this fishery really are the archetypal Mr Crabtree type Tench and Crucian Carp swims, which have plenty of weed for the fish to hide and feed in. I would recommend using a rake to clear the weed in your swim prior to fishing, then hopefully you will be rewarded with some of the Tench and Crucian Carp we stocked into the fishery five years ago.
I will carry on clearing the rest of the swims over the next couple of weeks, so keep an eye out for my next post.
