Anyway, next year [2013] we will be inviting our anglers to bring a fourth rod as a float rod and will get a number of keepnets so that any small fish caught can be kept and removed so that we don’t have a growing population of small carp.

We will also remove the catfish so that we can ensure that any left will not be able to spawn again and we will pin our hopes on the thousands of big bass, now present, to deal with the eggs and fry from now on.

         In short, we have had absolutely no signs of any poisson chats this year at all.

The carp fry and baby catfish do not appear to be a problem any longer and, if we continue to remove any that we do manage to catch, the large carp will flourish more and more each year.

After all, if we are able to remove each small fish as it gets caught then it won’t get caught again. Well not until it has reached mid twenties.

 Now it’s down to trimming off the reeds ready for the fresh growth next spring, checking the hedges for discarded bottles again and trimming back the extra growth.

After that it’s just a matter of 20 tonnes of road base to re-bed the long path and all the swims once the new front timbers have been replaced.

The fact that all 20 tonnes will need to be put in place, barrow load by barrow load, from the barn to Billy-no-mates should keep me fit.

         Blimey, is it March already???
