Project Restock #1
Lakes and Rivers are the life blood of our sport and it is of utmost importance that they remain healthy and hold good fish stocks. Our goal was to raise as much money as possible to donate directly to venues that have been adversely affected by fish kills, predation, poaching etc. With the help of our followers we managed to raise a considerable amount and directly stock the nominated venues which we felt were most in need of the support. The first venues was Stanborough Park and Fairlands Valley run by WG Angling Club and are both run on a day ticket basis from £5/day and are open to all. They received a good helping of Carp and Tench to help secure their future. Next was Boothsmere Pool located just outside Manchester, the lake has suffered with depleted fish stocks and spent many years struggling to gain new investment to raise the money needed to stock the lake. The venue offers FREE fishing to kids 16 or under so was definitely a great choice. We stocked a whooping 50 odd Carp all of good sizes, which both gave the venue an immediate kick-start and promises a bright future. Finally was the River Stort. Most of us start our Angling journey on a River somewhere as they really are a special place that we are all so lucky to have access to so was great to end the project here with a mega 5000 new native fish being introduced.
