**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.

**Weed Control Next Week**
We will be adding a blue weed control dye into Oxlease and Hunts Lake on Tuesday 12th April.
The lake will remain open whilst this takes place and the boat should only be on the water for about 90-mins. This is essential work that is required to control the weed and shouldn’t cause and disruption to your fishing.

**Swim Availability Update - The Site is Very Busy**

We have had a lot of people show up today and the site is now very, very busy. We will be posting the availability as normal this evening but we just wanted to give you an update now.

For anyone thinking of showing up later today, there will be swims around but not many and the choice will be very limited. If you are planning a trip tomorrow there are plenty due off from Saturday mid-day or early afternoon. Hunts is basically full until Sunday as Is Oxlease, Oxlease will re-open at about 1-2pm Sunday.

We strongly advise you do not to show up early on Saturday as we don't want to you do be disappointed, if possible travel down from mid-day onwards. Our apologies if this affects your plans but we wanted to, where possible, to avoid people making a wasted trip and leaving disappointed. You can phone us on 07885 327708 on Saturday for an update on availability.

**Track Work: Brasenose & Hardwick Lake**

We will be continuing with track repairs on the Brasenose and Hardwick Lakes next week. We will be closing little areas of swims on a day to day basis to allow this work to continue but these areas wont stay closed for long. There will also be a period of a couple of hours on Monday or Tuesday that we will need to close the track in-between B-1 and B-2 to repair the track and drop-off points.

Our apologies for the inconvenience and disturbance this work will cause but it is essential work that must be carried out. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

**Special Offer for all Linear Fisheries Customers**

Linear Fisheries has made the decision to start selling the New ?#?Gardner? 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.
