@ Dan, check out the posts below, the swims are gonna be 'english-ified' during the winter period this year lol!

@ Jez.. Really?!?! Gutted for ya mate, that's a choker n no mistake!

@ Everyone else, please note that there are some full on technicolour pics (LOL) to accompany the text I wrote below, now available on the Angling International FB page. These will be added to their website in the very near future so all you need to do from now on is print off a stack for the lake of your choice before you head off on hols and (hopefully) you'll be sorted!

PS If anyone is interested, I will shortly be offering a guiding service for 3-7 day trips for 4 anglers over to Abbey. Prices are yet to be confirmed but will probably be negotiable to begin with, dependant on just how much of a b*tch you want me to be between landing your fish and taking photos lol!!

Please note this isn't a FULL guiding service as none of you can afford to pay me enough to cook for you n all, the grub'll be sorted either via the clubhouse or the new, on-site restaurant!

If you're interested, PM me here or please contact Ian at the Angling International office..

Kind regards,

Ru

Just got back from a week on Fox myself, had 10 fish up to 38 with 6 30's and 4 20's, i felt a tad unlcuky i didnt pick up a better fish....weather was pretty miserable all week and the fish were just stacked in a bay by 13....pleased with what i had but it was a grueller fishing in torrential rain, strong winds and the mud was awful....definitely need to board the front of the swims, i almost ended up in the lake on several occasions trying to net fish as you literally just slide down the bank to the water!

Jez: I think you may have been in the lodge when i was checking out this morning, didnt realise it was you and that you had been in 11...gutted for you mate!! Funny thing was i sat in that swim for an hour the day before you moved in there and i thought it looked good in there, almost asked if i could move onto heron as it feels alot more carpy than fox! Next time eh mate!

Just came back from a short trip in 11 and had 5 up to 42 but lost the biggun Won't go into too much detail as I literally feel sick when I recall and replay events back but suffice to say I saw the biggun 6ft from the boat before the hook pulled...gutted is an understatement

Was only pulling your leg Chris, don't get all emotional.. Seb never wanted Abbey to be a 'true' commercial venue in the style of les quis, dreamlakes, etc or that it should mimic many of our club/day ticket waters back home, HOWEVER, he does now want the work done on Fox so hopefully it'll look all prim and proper if/when u return in 2013>

Please bear in mind that it's his back garden so if he ever decided to stop the fishing there, he wants it to return au naturel asap and not have too many holes round the banks that require continuous upkeep long after we (and the $) have gone....

PS there won't be any hardcore involved, they're gonna be tastefully done lol.. Pics of the proposed stylee on my FB profile,

Regards

I dont expect to have to wear wellies every time it rains so slippery its all you can do to not slip over would at least be better if the swims were flat and had some hardcore put down bit of a claim waiting to happen if you ask me,the money that lake earns week in week out its not too much to ask to have a flat swim without mud up to your neck just needs some work thats all .swim 16 and 17 have been dug out but were full with its own paddling pool due to poor level and drainage.

RE The swims.. Watch this space after the close season this winter! I have a (builder) pal who is contemplating swapping some f.o.c fishing and cash in exchange for reconstructing the swims on fox. These will be levelled, boarded at the back and sides and quite possibly incorporate some steps (where required) and a novel bait boat launching/storing platform offset to one side at the front of each as well?!

PS How did you expect them to be? Mud is a natural occurence when rain and dirt mix
