Fishing for free

WE are happy to confirm that the junior fishing event at the end of May, publicised last week, will be completely free.

Participants only need to provide their own bait and tackle.

The event, on 26th May at Lakeside Fishery, will have a 4pm draw and fishing between 4pm and 8.30pm.

We must reiterate that even though we will be there ,under 14s must be accompanied by a parent/guardian for the whole time and that entrants 12 years and over must be in possession of a current environment agency rod licence.

As mentioned last week this event has always proved extremely popular and we only have a limited number of pegs available so please book early to avoid disappointment.

Finally can we again remind you that the envireonment agency fishing licences were due from 1st April.

We have heard through the grapevine that there have been a number of people in Notts that have already been caught without one and we would not like anyone from our area to join them through an oversight.
