I'm in formby and you have westpoint angling, and there's another just off the formby bypass.both are looking for new members.
I will find out the name of the other water for you,I joined both,but haven't fished them yet,as I had my membership at mescar fishery excepted so I've been fishing there.
I understand,both the clubs i joined hold matches on there water,with the occasional one on rosemary Wood.i fully understand where you are coming from,I used to love doing a Saturday club match back in the day.bradshaws,partridge, border fishery, cudmore,blundells,baden Hall,gorsty hall.do you do any of the matches at mescar.
