tips from rob


"very overcrowded"

"I have visited lux lane on 1 occasion it was very overcrowded, anglers many being teenagers or younger had no regard for the well being of the fish, I watched them being dropped thrown back in like you would through a stick for a dog.
My personal opinion is it is featureless, a square clay pit dug in a field, with the thought of tipper lorries turning up to empty fish into a hole.
Things might have changed now as this was the first and last time I went to the venue, some 2 years ago.
Call me old fashioned, but a lake that has been established for many years with features such as old oaks willows etc is more my bag, than a hole in the ground. Okay if you just want to bang fish out without any skill put into your fishing, presentation, feeding and things a little more than just lobbing a lead in an pulling fish out, I also noticed on my trip there that the line being used was so strong 10ib ish carp were just being lifted out without any landing net,( A BIT OF A JOKE REALLY).
Thanks for listening Tim.".
