Re: willesley lake

I fished the open yesterday, really enjoyed it. The lads who fish it regularly said the middle of the deeps would be best as there were fewer skimmers at either end.

Re: Brian Hull Steps Down

a shame Brian is stepping down, but as a fellow organiser, albeit not done it as long, I can understand his feelings. maybe it's time for the moaners to step up and show how perfectly they could run matches. either put up or shut up.
