    Hello Everyone

    We are arranging a Easter Weekend Meet at Cottington Lakes, Sholden, Deal, Kent

    We went here last Easter and had a scorching hot weekend.

    There are several large fishing lakes with good fishing, and a tackle shop. Also the seaside town of Deal is within cycling distance, with lovely fish and chip shops.

    There is on 1 male and 1 female shower and toilet and are quite basic.

    I have provisionally booked 8 EHU plots at £12.00 each, please ring the site direct and book under my name Mrs P Hay and give them your name. There will be no one to take calls 4th January -22nd February. However you can send me a pm to log your interest.

    http://www.cottingtonfisheries.com/page14.htm Telephone 01304 371898

    Regards Pat and Neil

    Thanks for sorting this one out again Pat, I just rang and booked so one of your Hay pitches is now a Hewitt. I did wonder though if you were going down on the Thursday, I am sure you did last year and we might be inclined to do the same :Smile: We left there on the Tuesday too, just to miss the traffic and because it was such lovely weather. Thanks again, Jane::bigsmile:

    Thats great Bob and Jane

    Yes we will probably go down there on the Thursday too.

    I will book the Thursday for us, it will great to miss the traffic, I think though you have to get there before 7pm as the gate is locked, so if you are going maybe you can arrange a token for us.

    Pat

    Yes you do need a license, I think they sell them in the tackle shop on site, I have bought one there in the past. But you can also buy them at the post office or on the internet.

    As far as I am aware there is only one way onto the site, however if we are there from the Thursday we can ensure that you have a token to get in after 7pm.

    You need an Environment Agency rod licence and a ticket for the lake

    Youve got no chance there you will have to charm the fish instead.

    Although I am partial to a bit of chocolate:ROFLMAO:
