I understand the thinking behind it but it doesnít work if you have people being queue jumped.
Ie You could end up giving over £100 and never get offered a ticket!

The thinking behind that is to keep the list small and people move up quicker on the list. Also helps keep those who add them self to every waiting list going, but have no intention of joining if offered a place. They are out there!

Thatís a joke, you have waited 8 years but can only stay on the list if you pay £100??

Iíve just received a call from them to ask if I want to still be on the list and they would charge me £100 to do so. Iíve been on that list for 8yrs without an offer of a place and I know of a couple of people who got offers quicker than that. I politely declined!
I asked about the fish deaths and was told they had a lost a couple 😂

There are plenty of other waters with equal and better stocks and lovely surroundings, you just know about them because they dont have tackle/bait company knob head's on them trying to push a product or making a ***** video.

Yes, Iíve heard the same, that it is a great atmosphere and camaraderie amongst the anglers. Iíve only fished one lake in my whole life that had a fifty in, to still have four fifties in Wellington it is an amazing venue. Judging by Darrell Peckís recent results at Welly , the back-up fish ainít too bad!

I agree. It was £2100. From £1200 to £1500 is a realistic price to ensure all 50 tickets are sold.

22x50 and 25x40 is an amazing stock and I can see why the ticket price was as high as it is, Iím not convinced on what people are saying is the current stock that itís worth over £2k a year. Thereís plenty of safe, beautiful water that donít cost anything like that.

It did have 22 x 50ís and about 25 x 40ís at the same time around 4 years ago. But those fish date from the mid to late 1970ís and unfortunately nothing last for ever and the are slowly fading away each year. And it would as probably had a detrimental effect of those big old fish, if they started added stockies during the peak of the lake..

But your paying for a lot more than just the stock. Itís very safe and secure and the etiquette is generally of the highest order plus itís a very picturesque mature lake these days.

Wtf. That is still a crazy number of big fish. I bet there arenít that many 50s in the midlands and north of England, ignoring the multiple wronguns!
