Lakes come alive after spawning is over

The club will be holding an Open Day at McGregor Lake on Saturday, the 24th of May, designed for novice anglers which will be open to non-members. Trained coaches will be on hand to provide tuition and assistance throughout the day. Refreshments and drinks will be provided too at the club’s expense. Fishing will start from around 8.30am but participants can come and go when they like.

Open Day a success despite arctic conditions!

It was lucky that there were plenty of hot drinks and snacks on hand to sustain all the brave souls who turned up for the Open Day at McGregor Lake as temperatures started to tumble. There was a good turnout for this second Open Day and, despite the conditions, a 9lb carp was landed together with some small roach.

Second Open Day at McGregor Lake exceeds all expectations

Around 50 participants enjoyed themselves at BHAA’s second Open Day held at McGregor Lake with everyone who fished catching, at least, one fish. Fish caught were mainly roach, rudd and skimmers but the odd small carp and perch were also landed. Those who attended were a mixture of novice anglers and persons who had returned to the sport after gaps of many years. All tackle and bait was provided free of charge by the Club and there were both hot and cold drinks available throughout the day together with a variety of snack foods whenever the anglers fancied a break.

You’ve got nothing to lose except maybe that big fish!
