Spoke to Andy earlier today. He told me syndicate is now over 50% full and still receiving enquiries. Been dealing with them in receipt order but won't be keeping this going for much longer. They've had a few punters booking the tour then not turning up, so they've now slipped down from their original positions on the application list.

I'm going to try and make time at the weekend to walk the paths from the car parks - last thing I want on the first visit is to get lost pushing a bloody fully-loaded barrow! There is a map available, but the paths through the woodland are not entirely clear.

There was a guy that was meant to go on the tour when I was there but he didnít turn up. I think the 40 processed were just enquires that he had replied to.

Not sure I'll get down there on the 1st, but hopefully later in the week. Was told they've got to get some sort of gizmo sorted first, which takes your photo and produces an ID card - that's why you can't pay before 1st April apparently. As to the syndicate filling up, I wonder if all those enquiries have actually all signed up, or even been sent letters? Maybe that's just how many have enquired (been processed) to date?

I went to the Big One show on Saturday - can't recall seeing the Total Carp stand, but I did see the syndicate leaflets out on a couple of other stands (Sonik was one of them - there was a syndicate banner on display there as well).

Andy said heíll be getting my acceptance letter sent out Monday so Iíll be heading down there on the 1st with my money. He said heís processed about 40 inquiries so far and I think Total carp magazine weíre going to be advertising on their stall at the big one show this weekend so it looks like theyíll get the full 50 members.

Sounds good - they told me the same, and they also said there's a good response to the new price, so prob was a good idea to get in early. There's 50 swims on VWater, so even if everyone turned up on the same day (highly unlikely!) you'd all still have a spot to fish from, which is good. Only 11 swims on the Obelisk, much smaller than VWater, but it still looks well good. Make sure you ask to see the photo album before you leave if they don't show it to you during your trip round - some nice fish in there. They also have a closed FB page of their own - only just getting started, but will be used as their photo gallery - might be worth asking to get on that as well to see whats getting caught. Was fairly busy with walkers on the day I went round, but they don't seem to interfere with the anglers - perhaps the odd dog off a lead barging in, but you can get that anywhere, I suppose. Good luck with it - hope you get a place. (and I hope you're feeling fit - its bloody huge! )

Nice one. I had a chat with Andy and just waiting to go round with rob my last visit got cancelled due to the park being closed because of high winds. I was glad to hear they are only taking 50 people on. They only had 18 last year.

I didn't get asked to provide any references - it was just a sort of informal chat and discussion about what I've done fishing-wise, where I've fished before, PBs, did I know about the lakes etc. It was more Rob telling me about how it all worked, got to see a photo album of some of their recent catches and a good look round the two lakes. Expect that's what you'll get if you're going on the same tour as I did. Enjoy your tour - its an impressive place.

That's what I thought when I saw the leaflet. Not knowing the lakes, I'm glad I went along and had a look. Just waiting to hear now if I've got a place - fingers crossed!
