A very miserable day with high winds made it difficult fishing on the pole today at Lindholme Lakes.
With 8 lakes, I thought I’d chance it and arrive without enquiring whether there would be any pegs available for pleasure fishing. I was lucky as I asked the man in the tackle shop, and he said no, but a guy in the other room stated a few had come up on the Oasis Lake, Pegs 51 – 64. Lesson learnt, from now on I will always ring the pond before hand!
Not knowing much about any of the lakes here apart from the odd bits I have read online, I headed to peg 60. It had a few far bank markers, and a nice feature margin to my right, so this is where I settled for the day.
Since joining the Yorkshire Fishing Forum I have learnt a lot, all be it in a short length of time. I had been keeping a keen eye on the YF Social Match section. As you will have seen I only usually go Pleasure fishing, but, to develop my skills, and to get a feel for adult fishing matches, a Yorkshire Forum social match sounded ideal. It also gave me a chance to put faces to names from the Forum!
I couldn’t make the first 2, but decided to book onto the 3rd Match at Sunrise Lakes in Spofforth near Wetherby, North Yorkshire. What a great decision it was. I was made to feel very welcome by all who attended and a great day was had by all. There was 10 of us in the match.
