    Can The Method Feeder Be Used?

  • Debby Kelly

    Is pinfold lane open yet

      Hi Debby,

      Yes I believe it is. Quite often the signs are up but there is no actual work taking place. If there are no builders present ignore the signs, if they are there tell them that access is required to our pools. If it possible then they must let you through.
      Unfortunately they give us no warning of road works, and mostly none is taking place!

    • Foxhills Fishery

      Hi Jason,
      Pre- tied hooks to nylon are fine, max size 10. Currently catching on luncheon meat, corn and maggots. We have good feeder pellets in our shop as well. Have no idea about buses, there is one that passes Great Barr language college the best place to get off at the end of Old Hall Lane. Call for any further info. Regards

    Can i assume loose feed is permitted like maggots and casters plus which pool is best for roach bream and tench around March 19/20th as not into carp fishing plus need somewhere to fish whilst wife attends Aston university course.

    • Foxhills Fishery

      Maggots and casters are ideal. Lots of roach in all three pools, top pool has large slab bream and small pool excellent for tench. Look forward to seeing you, Diane

      Small in line feeders are still ok. No ground bait in them though. Thanks
