Spoke to Hodge the other night and we are good for the whole lake with 10 (at the agreed 5 quid per head still), but be good if we can make 12. Also I see the fish on the new license is a Bream, got to be a good omen.
@dirk It;s a combination which for countless kid learning to fish for decades, causes, birds nests ! Once mastered though (one day I might ) gives a great sense of achievement. When you 10 or 12 and can underhand cast and zoom a float, across a canal under a overhanging tree and land the float where you intended to, make you feel like a 'real' angler.
@Northantslad no worries mate, fingers crossed it won't be the only MD match at Rysons. Then again once the bailiff claps eyes on the bunch of 'neer do wells that have entered, a lifetime ban for all MD'ers is likely to swiftly be put in force.

Cheers drw. Struggle at that time of day. Not sure what time needle and awl opens at Raunds. Dog and Duck at Wellingborough opens up early. Both of those do a decent fry up. Dog is about 25 mins away from Islip. Raunds 15 min away. You have a maccy ds at Raunds too.
Had a wander round this avvy, first time I’ve seen the place.
One bloke fishing on Peg 29 or 30 I think, he caught a tiddler as I walked past.
Wind was blowing into low numbered pegs, wrap up warm as it’s quite exposed and the wind coming across the fields and lake next door was a bit nippy ?
Barrow or trolley is a must have.
Looks really nice, can’t wait ? Weigh sheet and clip board ready, see you all in the morning ?
