It is a shame buddy...I can well remember the chap mentioned by Ken, Reg England,in his motor at Crowdy,met him a few times,very decent chap,old skool…another famous local would be Francis Bartlett,ex bailiff for the whole of Kernow,and all the River Camel,has a stretch of water in his name...[lived next to my mother in law,and the only one time I have been asked for my fishing licence ,ever,was by Francis and Gary Dummett..lol....


Yeh,ol Reg,`get up on Tamar boy,get on the beach`......don't make em like that anymore,sadly….

Yep, one can only Imagine if they had someone sensible running it...

Oxymoron!

There has been no one sensible in the SWLT's fishery office since Stuart Bray left (or maybe Reg England). While 'lifers' like Evelyn Stacey remain in charge there is absolutely no chance whatsoever of one ever being appointed either.

Yes I meant the 117 acres of potential Wandle.

But the other one, nearly 1,000 acres, that's a probably bit of water, and a challenge.

Hi mate,the one I'm on about is nr 1,000 acre...👍 (amazing resource)


There is loads of potential down here,across from me,is 117 acres of potential...totally wasted,lots of anglers,lots of places...,but.....👀 ...would be lovely to see College rise once again...but for those that loved that place,and forged lifetime memories,it's best maybe,for them to have just that,35mm pictures,and great times past..

Same for lower Tamar,one of my all time special places,I still fish it sometimes,but they say,'never go back',I dunno..

What a waste of a amazing resource...

Yep, one can only Imagine if they had someone sensible running it, i know it is a big investment, but not really in the scheme of things in today's world.

First otter fence it properly, restock it wisely per acre with C3/C4 UK proven carp from VS Fisheries, Dinton strain, Priory Fisheries, AJS, Scaley Simmos, that would be an awesome water for the South west for decades to come.

Surely they can see that the South west is screaming out for a future proofed big carp water !

I seen some pics back along when it opened for the trial period...

Some of the fish,if I remember had predation damage,some of the rejuvenation seem to be less than a year in the makng,judging from blowing the pics up...


Like Ken rightly said,a chance to fish a proper history water for someone....👍


(they should open up the big one,in Jamaica!)

What a waste of a amazing resource...

Just seen on Facebook that they are opening up a 12 man syndicate on College. £200 for the year.. wonder what the stock is like now.

Depends on the severity of otter predation. SWLT have put quite a few trout ressy commons in there and there may be a few of the originals left. Bear in mind that these will be very long in the tooth by now, having been stocked in the late 70s.Still at £200 that's got to be worth a shout. Too long a walk to the best swims these days for my tired old legs!

No mate, way too far. I was just having a walk in the fresh air clearing a hangover when I walked round argal as we were in a cottage over the hill for a week.

In May I’ve got a three day job in Falmouth though so I may bring the gear down to do a night.
