Sounds very interesting Daz, why don't you give it a go given that you don't have a long walk, peace and quiet eh? Perfect[^][:T][:T]

Hi,I've fished it a few times.pole at 13mts,the usual bream baits,brown crumb,fishmeal,supercup,sensas lake,any of these combinations will draw the fish.Also corn,pellets for the hook and feed.worm caster ,maggot.

You need plenty of bait to keep the fish in your swim.Same thing if you fish the tip chuck over to the far bank ,just shy of the lillys.I use a groundbait catty also if they are having it.The bream run to 5-6lb...

And its 1/2 mile walk about from either the bridge near smiths arms or the Hand and Dagger..

Hope this helps
