When I saw the topic heading I thought somebody had bid for Wales. Then I thought nah - it ain't worth that much.

If it swims, catch it.

Well I think they ought to take the money off the WFCA and give to someone who knows how to run a fishery in the first place. They have demonstraterd their lack of knowledge by the creation of that cess pit in Llanelli where nobody wants to visit. If they had spent the money on the construction of a fishery where poeple would travel to, it wouldn't have been wasted. Furthermore, because the officials of the WFCA have made it a business opportunity by registering the project as a public limited company, there is no way to get rid of them. It is not called the Welsh Federation of Corrupt Anglers for nothing. Luckily for us, Peterstone fishery provides all the fishing local anglers require and is attracting the majority of anglers who used to fish at Llanelli. The money would have been better spent had the WFCA not got their hands on it.

Peterstone fishery. Never heard of it. Could you give me some information on it please.
I live in Swansea, so I hope it isn't too far away.

I'm driving enough to fish this year already.

Peterstone is situated near St Brides and it can be reached quite easily. It is a little peggy this time of year but it has a massive head of fish, skimmers, roach, rudd bream and tench. It used to be trout fishery but has changed over to coarse. There are matches there every week throughout the summer and a few at this time of year too. the telephone number for the fishery is
01633 680905.
It is quite deep with plenty of shelves and bars but the true potential has not yet been realised as it has only been open a short while. They do breakfasts there too. I am not sure of the actual directions but they will put you right when you ring up.

Cheers mate

Giles
