They were all completely cleared, to provide easy access, and re-dug to make them safer for the angler. PathwaysContinue reading “River Mole fishery at Cobham 20th November 2021”
As is customary on the Padworth Fishery work party, which is always attended by Thatcham AA members and myself, the work begins in the kitchen the night before. The baking always produces a Lemon Drizzle Cake by special request and one other, which this year was a Chocolate Oreo Sponge. As a lot of workContinue reading “Padworth Fishery 22nd May 2021”

On arrival at the fishery, you could not see swim number five from swim number one, although they were along the same straight. ByContinue reading “Bulls Lock Fishery 12 – 13 April 2021”
Due to the current Covid 19 restrictions, I decided to carry out this work party by myself. I worked on two of the original swims which were created for us by the EA about ten years ago. The Willow berms they installed to stop the swims eroding, had become very overgrown. I cleared the areaContinue reading “Snargate Fishery Work Party-7th March 2021”
