March 2017 - Great start of the season
Week 1 saw the return of our friends from Sheffield, Darren, Stuart, Byron and a new friend Dennis.
Darren and Dennis fished together in swim 3, Stuart in swim 1 and Byron in swim 7. The water is still chilly and reached no more than 10 degrees by the end of the week and the fish are a bit sluggish.
Darren fished towards the island in front of swim 4 and up to the inlet and had three mirror carp from these locations. The last one was a mirror of 33lb5oz that rattled off as he was packing up on Saturday morning. On Thursday he sat in swim 6 and had a lovely common of 25lb5oz.
Byron had a personal best common of 27lb followed the next day with a personal best mirror of 35lb.
Stuart and Dennis had some bites but none were converted into carp on the bank. Stuart had some fun fishing for the pike as well and had several.
