whats started out as a little get together to help a few lads with tips and help with there general fishing skill's is turning into something bigger so i'm opening it to anynone who wants to join us for a days fishing weather you just want to meet fellow anglers or want to iron out a few winkles in your angling with help from more experianced anglers everyone will be welcome

i've been for a look see ,and i think birch house lakes at brailsford just up the A52 at the far side of the village next to the main road just down yeldersley lane as you head north see here for aerial view and here for the map i would think it will depend on the weather really but sunday 9 apr looks good .will have to keep a eye on that in the forecast.the day tickets at birch house is 5 there's a match lake (lake 1) and a match lake for silvers,plus other lakes on the complex to choose from .i was thinking of having the Mc donaulds carpark at markeaton island (A52/A38 island) as the meating place for all who want to come along around 9am ish,then its a 5 min drive to brailsford village.if i'm coming alone i may have room in my car for one more + tackle.i'll nip over there this weekend and see whats on the notice board ie matches ect & see if theres a chance of a discount ? (yeh right!).just to formalise things a bit.

McD's car park at Markeaton Island is a bit small. Would you not be better in Markeaton Park car park ?

I'd be interested in going but might not be free. Is it okay if I just turn up on the day or do you need to know in advance?

i'm keeping it as open as possible so if anyone who wants to come can no need to book and no pressure if they change there minds,its not a match (although at some point we might have a friendly knock up if people want,basic alley its a day out where if theres any aspect of your fishing you could use any tips or help with there will be someone there to lend a hand or if you just want to try things or tactic's you've not done before like pole fishing ect or you just fancy putting a few faces to names.so if you can make it then fantastic if not we'll catch you another time.

it was a good day,plenty of fish where caught ,the turn out was lower than first expected as there was a few people who'd let it be known that they couldn't make it,and the weather reports on tv where better than metcheck was we had a whole years worth of weather in one day,we had spring showers,summer sunshine,turbulant Autumn right through to snowy winter and all in the space of a few hours.but we caught fish constantly.finally left at 10 to 4 admist a snow blizard and by the time i reached the A38/A52 island it was sunny again.

yeh and they where all big uns,thinking about it one of the guys too our left had a bream it was the only fish i saw them get but perhaps all the big fish was the other side of the island where no one was fishing !mind you i was a little worried when setting up and plumbing the depth and i hooked into that monster.....twig that is (more like half a tree).it was great to meet you and a pleasure to fish with you as well ,i'll have to sort something else soon.
