This weekend myself and Bob paid a visit to Ladybower Reservoir. It’s not actually in Yorkshire but it’s just on the edge so we thought it was about time we fished the place and got it up on the main site.
After taking the wrong junction off the M1 we spent about an hour trying to get out of Sheffield, it’s time to invest in a sat nav!
When we finally arrived at Ladybower we parked up and went to the office to get a boat sorted. After parting with just shy of £35 for an afternoon ticket it struck me that the fishery manager was, to put it bluntly, a miserable bastard!
He was obviously not one for conversation, any attempt at it by myself was met with blank stares and grunts. When you’ve got a job most anglers would kill for why not show a bit of enthusiasm!
I’m sure he gets sick to death of anglers asking the same old questions but as a paying customer I feel a bit of helpful advice is part and parcel of paying to fish a large commercial water. Who knows, maybe he was just having an off day? Rant Over!
A full write up on Ladybower will be added to the main site in due course, in the meantime check out these pictures, it really is a lovely place to spend an afternoon.
