april 2018 - Season opening week(1 - 7 April week1)
Week 1 saw a Superweekend of 3 anglers and their friend from Germany who took the photos. They fished in Swim 5 & 6 but then Martin moved to Swim 4 and caught his 3 fish. Peter and Glenn were in Swim 6 and had 2 carp each. The weather was challenging with cold winds and heavy rain.
John and his young son Finlay stayed in the chalet for the week. It was half term so they spent several days exploring the area, shopping and eating out. Fin enjoyed fishing for the pike and tench whilst waiting for a carp but they only fished for two of the nights. They both caught one of our new commons.
