Are you open

Jayne - replied on 28th Apr 2020 at 5:05pm

No sorry James until we hear from the government we have to stay closed as it’s classed as unnecessary travel. I have spoke to both the local council and police in regards to people fishing and this is how it is for now they are very strict on this . As it is here ...we are feeding the lakes ourselves and still maintaining all areas in fish care as you would expect while continuing maintenance on the fishery. Please stay safe Regards Jayne
