 LAST OF ALL WE AT WESTON WANT ALL OUR CUSTOMERS TO ENJOY THEIR DAY HELP AND ADVICE IS ON HAND AND READILY AVAILABLE, IF YOUR NOT SURE PLEASE ASK – TIGHT LINES FOR 2017 -

New and as from Aug 2016 - after consultation with our fishery adviser we have decided that feed pellets purchased from Weston can no longer be soaked in any form of fish oil. There has been no change to the hook bait policy but after advice sought and in the interest of our stocks welfare feed pellets must be fed straight from the bag or flashed off with lake water and nothing else. once again we dont jump into rule changes and for the most part are happy for anglers to work with us in creating a level and fair playing field in matches and also strive for a relaxed controlled set of simple rules. the advise we have been given suggests that high levels of oil fed pellets can be detrimental to the water clarity and oxygen levels as well as having a negative impact on the fish. We thank you for your cooperation any questions please see Mike or Rich.
