Has anybody every fished churchgate fisheries? am off to check it out tomorrow morning and see whats its all about but thought id ask

http://www.churchgatelakes.co.uk/

I do know that when my mate went last year he was asked by the bailiff to put any big catches into the member's lake:stunned:
So if it's big carp you're after don't be suprised if you don't catch on the day ticket waters. Let me know how it went mate.

You mean this one......... ....................................Today i have started up the Essex region of the PAC (pike angling club) and will be having guest speakers, fish-ins and meetings with members and non-members alike all welcome.
The PAC is the single most club concerned with the welfare of pike in the UK and have regional assemblies all over the UK.
If anyone wants to know how or where to fish pike then get along to one of our talks/meets. Pm me in the first instance for general enquiries.
Thanks, Sean. (well it beats stressing over Southend)
