In the mean time we have closed a number of swims up the shallow end of St. Johns, this is the third time they've had a go up there so hopefully it won't last much longer.

We still have Brasenose-One closed due to spawning but all swims on Hunts Corner Lake are now back open.


Spawning

**Spawning Update** 9am 27/05/16.

The spawning on Brasenose-One has actually increased overnight and they have now spread themselves around what seems like the entire lake. This is unusual as they normally confine themselves to one area of the water.

Due to this we've taken the decision to close all of Brasenose-One. We know it's a bank holiday and many of you may have wanted to fish the water but it would not be fair on the fish. Our apologies to anyone who had planned to fish B-1.

As soon as they have stopped we'll re-open the lake, this could be this afternoon, tomorrow or Sunday, we'll keep you updated on this page.

Open Day

**Available at The Linear Open Day - This Saturday**
**Special Offer for all Linear Fisheries Customers**
Linear Fisheries has made the decision to start selling the New Gardner Tackle Intensive Care Treatment at a very low price. This Excellent product has only recently been released and really should be a must for all anglers to carry in their kit bags. It is designed for treating cuts, sores or hook-holds on fish and comes highly recommended.
We are going to make this product available to all anglers that visit the site, for only £6, this very special offer will probably mean we actually lose money on each sale. However we feel it's far more important to enable all visiting anglers to look after our precious fish without breaking the bank. RRP is normally £10.
This offer is only available to anglers visiting the site, either from our bailiff's on the bank-side or from the fishery office in-between St. Johns and Manor Farm Lakes. So make sure you get one of these the next time you visit the site.

This is just a reminder that DRONES are banned from the whole site. This is down to the proximity of the lakes to Brize Norton Air Force Base.

This rule will be enforced strictly, so please don't bring them with you.

**Swim Availability/Bank Holiday Update ** (Friday 11:50 am).

Oxlease and Hunts are now basically full until tomorrow midday/early afternoon noon, there are quite a few due off then particularly Oxlease.

The rest of the site is now very busy as well, quite a few have only paid until this afternoon, so some swims will free up as the day goes on but we would advise not to travel down in groups, as you will struggle to find swims together. There are single swims dotted about.

We will add a full update this evening, as normal. In the mean time you can contact us on 07885 327708 for advice on which swims are freeing up.

We will confirm this evening but it is looking like the site will be very close to full, tonight. For those travelling down tomorrow, it would probably be best to leave it until late morning or midday when there will be plenty of anglers leaving.
