Used to fish it back in the 90's....there was a private house and garden opposite Searles point, the boat club, a road on one bank and a few few other areas that had private bank....maybe all changed now but if you could get everyone to agree it would be a mammoth project and probably at least 100k plus to do it properly....just have to hope the otters stay in the river next to it......

£100'000 What they going to do fence half off it, our little syndicate of just over two acres cost £10'000 the material was over £5'000 which we supplied and the contractor's element was nearly the same, you can have a go yourselves if you've got the time granted but you'll never do it as well as a proper fencing contractor.

This campaign was started a couple of weeks ago and I'm surprised it's taken so long to make its way onto its own thread.
The BC and the lake it lives in are both very special but this was never going to go down well with everyone. Doing a lap of the big lake with Sharp, Stokes, Peck or Jonny Mac might actually be quite interesting imo but the fact remains that on paper they're basically asking the general public to pay for their syndi to be fenced in return for a session on the day ticket lakes that are available to all anyway.
Even if it works and they sell the places for a fortune (which I have no doubt they will having seen the types you get on FB) they can't hope to make a fraction of what it would cost to fence that place imo.

I'll give them credit for trying but agree with many below that it's cheeky as ****.

Iíve got this sorted. The answer is so obvious. Get Danny to buy the lake. Embryo will definitely fence it. Then they can fill it full of 15lb scaley bangers and run it as a noddy circus. Iím sure if mr Ellis puts his name down and stumps up the three hundred quid he can then continue his quest for the common. Itís a win win. And with all the extra bait (insert latest mainline offering) going into the lake the common will almost certainly achieve record weight, just before it bloats up and dies on someones uncooked 15kg of tigers they spodded in for a weekend.

This literally canít fail. Give me problems I will give you solutions. Donít all thank me at once.

I doubt he's losing any sleep.

As it happens my comment was more the company/people in general than any one individual, still doesn't get over the fact that this is all about a commercial company in business for personal gain.
Based on the few posts on here alone anyone with an ounce of sense can see it's not a very good idea, perhaps you can pass that on to your mate?

Agreed with general consensus and I for one won't be "donating" a single penny. I'll probably never in my lifetime have the privilege to step foot on the lake let alone fish it.... I'm sure if the owners/syndicate members were that worried, they'd find the means somehow...

The guy who has arranged this, Greg Ellis, has no commercial interest in it whatsoever. I donít personally see that it will work on a number of levels, but to call him scum! Thatís bang out of order.
