This weeks match is on the spring Pool at The Willows Fishery. For new members that have not fished it before the venue impose a few restrictions not allowing pellets, bread or any floating baits and no feeder/ledgering methods. Having said that the carp tend to be in the 5lb plus bracket and on a good day the winning weight can be well over the 100lb mark.
The first time it can be a little difficult to find so here are some directions:
- As you come into Penkridge on the A449 from Stafford you will see a black & white Tudor style pub (The White Hart) on the left – turn right into Pinfold lane.
- Go under the railway bridge, round over the river bridge and keep following the winding road for maybe a couple of miles up to the swan pub (on your right)
- Just past the swan pub turn left, follow winding lane carefully for about half to two thirds of a mile
- The fishery is on your right. The entrance is a simple farm gate immediately after Bank House farm Kennels
Postcode for the Sat Nav is ST19 5QJ (Bickford, Penkridge,)
Look forward to seeing you all bright and early on Sunday
