The festive seasons matches are now upon us with Adventure going to Dandys Ford this Sunday for their match and Oxoid at the same venue but on the canal, the Camrose Christmas event will be at Whitehouse Lake on Sunday 22nd December, Kennet Ospreys will be at Willow Park on the same day.

This coming Sunday Kennet Ospreys are at Billhook Lake, Camrose are going to Soke Road Lake.

With the weather now wintry to say the least don’t stop fishing, for a day at the bankside is better than sitting indoors or visiting people.

Catch me next week.
