|A great set up at the Viaduct|
Arriving at just after 10:15 it was busy, REALLY busy! A quick drive around the car park meant I would be parked in the overflow car park (which I have never encountered before on a fishing venue) and would have to wheel my gear down the road or through the car park to get to the open lakes. My fault for staying in bed! Walking into the lodge there was a fair bit of tackle available, but I wouldn't really review the store as seemed incredibly specific to that venue and they very much sold to their strengths. This water was heavily fished using pellets, so it seemed obvious that they had stacks of pellets in all shapes, brands and sizes. They also sold a range of commercial gear, (i.e. pellet bands, pellet wagglers, hi-tec mainline, wide gape pellets hooks etc), as well as a selection of live bait. I restocked on pellet bands and feed pellets, bought some maggots, a day ticket (£8) and made my way down to the lakes.
|My chosen peg (48) offered plenty of options.|
|Bit of a lump this one.|
