Recommended Posts

so, i used to fish with the old man about 14 years ago so im like a total newbie again. ive dug some old gear out, got some bait and looking to do a spot of maggot drowning tomorrow. I live at stannington and wanting to fish somewhere fairly local.

 

Anyone reccomend anything? will have my 13yr old nephew with me too.

 

Thanks

hold on a mo first try cow gap farm (just up the road )from you , its small and there are a good variety of fish :D or drop down into loxley and fish at Marshall's

old brick yard(now renamed loxley fisheries) or go towards malin br to mill dam (just down dark lane), these all all small ponds that are within a couple of miles of stannington so if you get cold :gag:fed up :mad:or just wet :(!!!!!!!! you aint got all that way to drive :rolleyes::hihi:

barlow ponds would be best, where i started off nice ponds too, also you can have the top pond for 20 quid i think but only 4 people can fish that at once, but its very hard fishing the top pond apprently and the other ponds are a fiver for as many rods as you want out :)

i think barlow might of changed sinc u was there last kieron, as u can only have 2 rods for a fiver sinc iv known and iv never heard about the top pond been rented out, i know the farmer at bradleys ponds at ford bottom does the top pond for 20quid for 4 people, u sure u ant got mixed up with that one mate? thats not a bad place to fish also
