Colnes Angling Society have recently restocked of their two lakes, Pebmarsh and Boley Road, writes Roger Fleming.
The fish were transferred from the Fullers Dairy lake at Sible Hedingham when the club gave up control of that fishery.
Only carp in double figures were put into the Boley Road fishery. All other species — bream, tench, roach, rudd, crucians and smaller common and mirror carp — were put into their Pebmarsh Lake.
Since the transfer, Pebmarsh is now fishing very well with many tench coming to the float. Legering is producing large bream, tench and carp. The hot weather did not put the fish off the feed.
The club’s Domsey reservoir is producing large bags of medium-sized carp, either bottom fishing or off the top.
I don’t apologise for writing about this subject again, but lately I’ve had my fishing spoiled on a couple of lakes by anglers fishing next to each other, some distance from me, talking continuously at the top of their voices.
When I am fishing I don’t want to hear what people have been watching on TV, what they’ve just caught and on what bait, or what large fish they’ve just lost, also where they are going for their holidays, etc.
At one lake, a chap some distance from me was on the phone continuously and he had the loudspeaker on.
It always handy if there is a bailiff on the water as you can ask him to go and ask the offender to quieten down and say he is getting complaints from other members.
I do not personally want to get into an argument on the bankside when I’ve gone for a few hours peace and quiet, although it has happened in the past.
