last time i went was not good ,but the time before was a good days fishing and picnic. with my 2 dogs which i kept on leads.
the time before was spoilt by a person breaking large branches of the trees and throwing in the pond for their dogs.
the language spoilt it for everyone and the dogs spoilt the fishing.
and i wasted 10.00.
i think i reported it at the time on this site
