Hi Justin.. No, David who owns Theale has nothing to do with Burghfield. The fencing he has done there and on T1 is superb.

they certainly live in some special, made up world... why on earth would anyone think that "ordinary" anglers would pay for them to be able to fish it is beyond me...

You missed a fundamental point. All these big name anglers arenít stupid enough to put their own money into the fence, cos they all know the second the common is dead you wonít see any of them for dust again.

Iím very interested in the guided tour of your pond, can I bring my pet otter, he loves water.

I can't believe that a group of successful, top of their game, carp anglers, probably with sponsorship deals, links to major companies or even their own businesses can't, between them, raise the money, but have to beg. Very sad.

On a side note I have just paid £3,000 to fence a bit of land alongside my pond at home, it's not an otter fence but if any of you want to make donations of anywhere between £10 and £5,000 (ok with £5,000 I'll be in profit but it's worth a go), I promise that I will give the largest donor a guided tour of my pond and a option to carve their initials in a fence post of their choice, I can't say fairer than that..

Anyone interested in donating please pm me.

The Old salesman's trick, make something very exclusive and charge the earth for it will make people feel they have something only the select few can have.
They don't actually want it but it makes them feel good about themselves.
That's not for me thanks, would rather be just a member of my local club waters, at least the club don't rip me off. £100 a year to fish quite a few decent waters does me just fine.

This is evolution, mark my words the "Corporate" water is coming.

A lake that is full of big big fish where a ticket starts at £5k a year and is only open to the employees of tackle or bait companies and their guests, the big companies paying for the ticket's, tax deductible of course.

Tackle open days and pay to enter competitions just so Joe Bloggs can tread the hallowed turf, celebrities my arse.

Strikes me as a very arrogant attitude. They are basically saying, we are a very special group of anglers, we would like our water fenced but we donít have the money. Because of the one big fish in our lake, a lake none of you will ever fish, we feel you should be enough in awe of the fish and us as super star anglers to cough up to protect our fishing. If you are really lucky we might let you walk round the lake with Darrel Peck.

Well guess what, heís paid to attend shows by Korda, so if for some bizarre reason you simply must speak to him, pay ten quid to get in and go to the korda stand.

Iíve never heard anything so ****ing stupid in all my life. Could these people be anymore up their own arses.


Embryo - fencing Club waters for free out of Dannyís own pocket. Waters he will never have a ticket for or ever set foot on. Fencing for the benefit of others. Basically the complete opposite of what they are trying to do here, getting a water fenced for their own benefit.

My god the worlds gone mad.

Exactly. The problem is that once the BC goes...and letís face it, itís an old fish anyway, they are left with a bunch of Largely very uninspiring grey Simmos.

I do feel for them and whilst I donít applaud the sentiment, fair play to the guy for trying,

I wonít contribute, donít see the need to. None of my waters are fenced and all of them are suffering. The whole thing is a ticking time bomb, not just Burghfield. I also wonder what will happen to the money thatís raised once it becomes clear that they donít have enough to fence the lake, canít get planning permission etc....do they then pay it back?

Anyway, I hope they get the money and fence the lake. I really do and I strongly disapprove of the personal digs...but Iíd rather fund the fencing of lakes which I can actually fish!
