Hi everyone,

Does anyone fancy getting together for a day for a session on Castle Howard's large lake (Nr Malton , Yorkshire).

The match length has some deepish swims close in and is very rarely fished these days due to the lack of bream and silvers that CH was once well known for.
The length is only accessable to pre-booked matches so I was wondering if a few of us want to give it a go for the pike, I will see about booking it under the guise of a pike match.
No promises but there should be a fair few pike down there according to the local knowledge.

Let me know if you're up for it and suggestions for a date would be appreciated.

Cheers, Dave

i'm up for it depending on dates.(and the missus)


if every angler picked up one piece of rubbish every outing, the banks would be spotless???

hi Norm,

The only fish that came out of the match length on the last match in September this year was a 2oz perch - out of 35 anglers [:0]

The pike are now the predominant species and there are quite a few of them especially (so I have been told) away from the main footpath.
A resonable session, each with two pegs a piece should bring some good results or I'll eat Mookie's new hat this time rather than the dog [:D] lol
