The fishing has not been easy at the last two fishout days , and we have had rain , but the young fishers have persisted. There have been lots of true fishers amongst them and our guides were very impressed by their application.
A few years ago we changed our Trust deed to allow the disabled and the elderly to fish the ponds with Trust approval. On Tuesday the 6th December one of our Trustees , Jim Jobe, took a group of elderly ( half on wheelchairs) from Somerset Richmond to the ponds and they hooked five fish , most of which were released. The look of delight on the face of these elderly persons was great to see.
The ponds will be open for youth to fish from the 17th of December ( officially from the 20th but the weekend before will be ok) . We will be restocking the ponds before then.
