Bayeswater Lake

The original plan to create a day ticket lake where the angler can fish it like a good syndicate can be fished works. Lot’s of the anglers who fish there have said how nice it is to fish with 4 rods and none of the nonsense rules of the local club lakes. We do have rules but any sensible angler doesn’t do any harm do they. We try to bailiff the lakes by helping people rather than looking for fault and have had hardly any problems in doing so. I hate fishing with a 3 rod restriction, not being able to help an angler with a fish a couple of swims up or having to look over my shoulder all the time wondering what the tin pot idiot rule makers have dreamt up to hassle the angler next. It’s only fishing, we’re supposed to enjoy it and I hope we can carry it on just as it is now.
