Had one for 6 years till last year which was a big disappointment, made some great friends and most people where regulars every winter, it was a good atmosphere, i don't know how it will pan out this year as all the winter tickets where sold off a waiting list before a lot of us had a chance to buy them, a large group of us have been invited to a winter ticket on a well known dutch lake by one of the old winter ticket regulars so looking forward to that this year.

Yes mate there are, about 18 euro each way if I remember correctly. You can do either cash or card, although my mates card would work on them mine did

Just returned from abbey boats on kingy r still in use stil plenty of cats they will be impossible to ever remove them all as I got done numerous times by them weed is still bad in places but itís what they live in I fished in the weed and did well the carp will prosper no question kingy was fishing well when I was there 3 weeks ago rats were of no issue complex was very quite due to the heat I think but fish were still coming out complex is still relaxed nobody on ya back when fishing cats r being put in a lake called hook Iím think and wonít be fished for but sold on at some point . I believe u will always be able to target cats in kingfisher no matter how much they remove certainly for the next year or 2.

i think there is a lake behind fox that they would go into the railway lakes are Jurassic and full of good stock fish it would be almost impossible to get them out again, i also don't think they have scratched the surface with removing the cats from kingy iv'e known two different fish over 160lb that haven't been landed yet to be removed so keep your cat gear for a while yet

I got a feeling this is a selective rule spoke to a mate that was there end of June and he had a guy moaning in the next swim as he was told boats was banned but two dutch guys where using their boats and nothing was said ??? i went there for two days at the end of may on my way to Rainbow i always have a boat in the van but can't be arsed to pump it up for a couple of days

Yeah no doubt they are going into their other lakes the other side of the railway. Real shame though. Its not like the carp weren't doing well in kingy anyway. I was going to back for a go at them in the spring but not now. I will have a go for the carp on one of the lakes next year, but was going to carp fish kingy during the day and for the cats at night. Can't see boats being banned though, some areas of kingy will be nigh on impossible to land them without going out, the weed can be horrendous. Thick right upto the surface in 30ft plus depths. I've wound in 6ft balls of the stuff on many occasions without a fish attached so can't see how you'd land much in that from the bank

i've no doubt Dave will have a plan for the cats i can't see them throwing them in the river they've probably been moved to one of the many lakes Sebastian owns and they are a commodity of sorts

yep the horses mouth, it was Dave the bailiff telling a group of anglers that boats were now banned when i was checking in in may, unless he's had another rule change of course, i'll find out in a couple of weeks i'll ask the question to see if the rule has been rescinded, dunno about Ru but i do remember fishing next to Ian Russel on fox and over a early morning coffee he was clear that although he didn't pay for his trips out there the rules where clear that he had to slot in around paying anglers, swim 12 Heron was closed a lot and unless Ru thought you was a capable angler (weather you was or not) it was often kept shut, i fished for two years there before he would allow me to fish it and you had to have a boat for fish retrieve, and often see other anglers go in there not just famous ones

Don't know where you're getting your info from mate but id check it out first before posting.
From the horses mouth........ boats are still allowed, same as before, not for baiting up with etc but 100% not banned.

I guess there's no pleasing everyone all of the time mate. I will go again for sure. I actually preferred it last year than the last time I was there some 12 or so years back.
