Our first reported thirty of 2017

Pleased to say Howells has done its first 30 of the year over the weekend, still 2 months or more until spawning , we should see a few more over that time , most fish that are coming out are over 20lb with a lot of upper 20’s all looking nice.

Hopefully the thirties in Totham Pit and Slough House Farm will now follow suit and put in an appearance soon…
