not a bad little lake

Went fishing here with a mate earlier this year, I was surprised how good the fishing was. Caught a decent haul of Mirrors mainly to just under double figures so it was good fun on fairly light gear. My mate hooked into something a bit bigger but it went under the rope that separates the members end from the day ticket bit and lost it. I would definitely fish here again and parking was easy at the weekend.
