Would be interested in a maggot drowning fishing club??

Working at the garage you get to meet lots of interesting people including nice friendly farmers who have waters on their land & are quite willing to lease them at a bargain price.

I have been talking to one who has a very nice pool on his land which already has a stock of fish in it & he's willing to put a carpark etc in the field so we can park our cars up & not have to worry about them being safe.

I have also been speaking to another young farmer who has taken over his fathers farm & has a long section of river running through it (but i ain't saying which one) & he's going to find out how much fishing rights & waters they own (they've got fields all over the place & quite a few have got waters on them.

The last thing is i have been looking at a stretch of water which has a good head of chub, barbel & wild carp in it but hasn't been leased for as long as i can remember.

Now if i could secure at least a few of these waters how many of you would be interested in joining a club to help pay for the waters upkeep & if its a still water some extra stocking of fish??

If enough of you are interested then i'll do my utmost to secure them for us at reasonable rates


Of course (or should that be coarse?) we will have to make proper agreements, rules etc for the "club" but it will be ones we can all agree on


Anyway i'm off to work now so i'll leave you all to have a think about it & i'll take a look later on tonight when i get home .

Hi Trogg ---- You must have read my mind l was gonna say something on the lines of this topic..damn.....one problen though its ok for you lot in the southern half of our beautiful UK...But its long way for us Northern folk to travel .....its a pity we couldnt say like make two sections of the club....one for members living south of say Derby and the other for north of Sheffield ???

Then at the end of the season we all go round to Troggs for a pie and p...s up

Cheers......MOOK

Ok fellas i'll make a serious start on the people & see what we can achive


Mooks no argument from me mate but we've got to get the money in to pay for the waters so see what you can find round your way & we'll see what happens when we all get our heads together


I ain't touching anyone who's been in contact with Trev cos i might catch the curse.
(hold on i spent a bit of time with Trev at the Stafford fish-in n i'm ok so i must be immune)

Hi All

I'm off to work in a bit so i'll be keeping an eye out for the farmers/landowners & get cracking on the waters for us.

John (esox) do you remember the bit of water we were discussing not so long ago?

well i've spoken to what must be staffords oldest angler this morning & he had a barbel out over the weekend at 9lb 6oz & a net full of chub (he doesn't use a keepnet its just his way of describing how many he had), he also said that his friend had 4 pike in 20mins on the same stretch just down from the bridge the biggest was ONLY (as wally put it) 10lb.

Guess i'm really gonna have to get to work on finding out just who the hell does own that stretch cos so far i've been given 3 different owners!!!

That was cruel Waxy, although I did hear the words "donner und blitzen" when Germany heard Zippy was travelling. (Not by the Spirit of Free enterprise I hope)
