The lake is well set out in quiet countryside with only a murmur of the M4 in the distance.

The lake is a fairly new build and as such is not a prolific fishery. It did remind Lordy of his early days, waiting for a bite (and missing it!). However, Chris managed to net two very nice tench, some roach and a few baby barbel.

It wasn't the most energetic of days but apparently it fishes very well first thing in the morning and last thing in the evening, so fishing it in the middle of the day was probably not the best idea. Oh well!
|Derek is keen - he carried on for at least an hour after the others left!|
