My weeks fishing nearly did not start this week as enroute to Magic Lakes on 26th November I got stuck on the M25 for over an hour. I was not best pleased as there was no mention of a hold up on the radio or that a lovely Highways Agency team had shut the M25 for over an hour for what appeared to be a not too serious accident. I am sure they get a high on the Power Trip they get for annoying everyone else.

It was still mild albeit very windy on Wednesday 18th November and I chose to fish the midweek match at Oakfield in Oxon that day.

I started my weekly fishing odyssey at Oakfield Fishery in Oxon on Wednesday 4th, This is my fifth match here in the last few weeks and my only peg on Woodpecker Lake so far was peg 1 (flyer) on my first trip. Today I drew peg 11 on Woodpecker Lake and was promptly told that this peg has won the last few matches on this lake. No pressure on me at all!

We have all said it before, we will have to go there one day, well I have been saying that about How End Fishery since it opened. There are two lakes on the complex, Yasi's and Dani's and both are liberally stocked with carp, skimmers, chub, ide and barbel. You get bites on any method, dependant on the weather. It is not all pellet either as most of the top weights come from maggot, caster or worm. So as you can see it is a proper mixed fishery, where bites can be had. Something I have needed of
