  1. Apparently there is a small Arapima around 40lb in weight. spotted by usual suspects.🙃
  2. You could try local pubs, ask if you can guest with them. You need to be fishing against anglers with decent abilities so you can pick their brains. Call in and ask for club chairmen.
  3. Most fisheries have a good match scene that anglers wanting to fish matches can easily do.
  4. I haven't fished there in the last 5 years, I am surprised to hear your report Jack. The bailiff always used to keep the venue reasonably tidy.
  5. Sad to hear. Terry also invented the Polaris feeder float. RIP Terry.
  6. Another 30lb fish at Aston yesterday, seems like they're having a chomp.
  7. 31lb 1oz from the lily pond yesterday. Method feeder with 2mm pellets and A 6mm pellet hook bait. The fish went in before Christmas.
  8. We're fortunate living Sheffield there are plenty of venues within reach without going too far from home. I doubt I will venture out until June. By then furloughed workers will be back to fishing weekends.
  9. The pond behind the Travellers used to belong to the builders on the left hand corner across from the Travellers. There are two ponds, tickets were around £100 but that was about 15 years ago. The builders is PG group
  10. Yes tickets on the bank. Beware of how much you feed, the extra pressure on fisheries generally around Sheffield have been showing low catch rates for out of touch anglers. The amount of anglers is the only reason. Furloughed anglers have to spend their time somewhere and why not. In warmer months it's far worse with fisheries being peg for peg, lots of returning anglers who used to fish rivers or natural venues are hitting local commies are feeding far too much. Edit At present there are no matches. Most fisheries accommodate pleasure anglers.
  11. When applying for your licence to trap crays ask the EA about any permissions you may need.
  12. That's the way to do it Presley. Too much guff written on forums.
  13. Don't take any notice of anything written on a forum, go up to Aston Park and chat to Alex he'll tell you what you want to know. He doesn't keep things quiet he sticks to legal guide lines. Not so sure about Ken at the Springs seems a bit aloof.
  14. No Alex has not moved all the carp up to the lily. He has just moved fish of between 10lb to 20lb, really 20lb fish are tackle breakers for match men. He added them to lily to compliment the 30s he's stocked in lily. In total he shifted 80 of the bigger fish. Why anyone would put fish of that size in a pond baffles me it will most certainly stop me from fishing there. So far as I know no fish were removed from stable. The KJS dam wall as it's called, as there been any bream catches or is it only carp. The poaching that occurred was from pond two, the big pond. Snake is pond five, the fish were removed from five up to two like I said. There's one rule. The venue owners can move what they like when they like. The fish are theirs.
  15. Don't think Ken at KJS doesn't move fish, the team at the springs fishery moved fish from the snake up to pond two. I think they were having trouble from poachers taking fish.
  16. Is this the dam wall at KJS Aston. I know Aston very well. Both KJS and Aston Park, both good fisheries. I stopped going there because of the state of the road, it never used to bother me much but it just got worse every week.
  17. Jef51 posted #14 that the bottom pond at Carter hall as had the carp from the top pond transferred down. Just another excuse I know, maybe I'm trying to be too picky Dave, I just want a nice comfortable venue with few or no carp. If I could manage Dam Flask I'd be up there like a shot. It always surprises me that a water like the Flask is hardly fished, just too difficult for me to access. The same access trouble prevents me from fishing the Don or Rother.
  18. Yes Dave I looked at ledger lake, it's not really suitable. the water is not big, it's just too far from the car park for me.
  19. My issue with both KJS Aston and Aston Park is the access road, our car springs just isn't worth the risk. Fishing on Aston park in particular is excellent. Both fisheries are good for silver fish. Phyllis lake is said not to be a runs water IE low carp stock, that's OK by me, really not enough room for me I'm thinking my pursuit of a suitable fishery is going to be fruitless unless I travel a little further, which I'm unable to do. With the pandemic increase in our area I'm going into another self imposed lock down so fishing is a long way off at the moment. Until things settle down and folks get back to work it looks like the only business to profit from the pandemic will be fisheries.
  20. A look up there is on the cards. KJS at Aston has some pegs I can manage, Aston has been very busy. Like I said the coolers weather may keep folk home.
  21. With my wife I had a drive up to Phyllis Lake by the side of the Straight Mile, it was quite busy. I was shown photographs of the carp also the Sturgeon that comes out on a regular basis. 28lb. The pond only has 20 pegs or so, why would such a fish be in such a tiny water. There were the odd picture showing roach. When the furlough ends with the cooler temperatures I'll be up there for the roach and skimmers. It's certainly too busy in the warmer months, every peg was occupied, such a small water can never fish well with that amount of anglers. Never mind the fact that a number of fishermen use two rods making for less room. It's proving not too easy to find a suitable fishery, there are thousands of local waters that I can manage, trouble being they are far too busy.
  22. Thanks spider, I've no decided against Treeton. I had a chat with a chap called Tony who's a nice bloke and with the banks limiting the pegs I can manage plus the power boats then talk of folk swimming I think it's not for me. Apparently the water belongs to the boat club, power boats are there to stay. Like I said, not for me.
  23. Treeton looked perfect with the right stocking for me with plenty of roach and bream, it would be too tricky for me to negotiate the banks so I had to give it the knock back disappointingly. Carterhall bottom pond may work, the top pond is far too far for me to walk. I had a drive with my wife up to Phyllis lake, it's on the same road as the Straight Mile. It used to belong to the police. Now it's changed hands it's a day ticket water, The Straight Mile holds a lot of roach so that could be worth a shot. Cooler weather will see those who fill the pegs on local fisheries stay home so a bit more room will begin to open up. Both Fusion ponds and Barlow are too far from my home I'd have difficulty getting my wife to leave me there Dave in case of emergencies.
