Apart from the river Trent, does anyone know of large still-waters near Newark thats worth a try for decent roach. It seems the winter is set to get harder and I fancy a bit of feeder fishing for these wonderful fish. Had an afterthought are any of the Lincs drains worth a try, roach, the odd bream. Just fancy wetting aline really?

Thanks all.

Rich.

Herbie.:D:D:D You mean its all carp puddles :eek::eek: I know the feeling, but each to their own I say. So where is everyone mostly from? I know there is a water Packington, but it's just a touch too far for me? thanks Rich.

Ryecroft, Little John Lakes, Hallcroft, Aldercar I think all offer decent winter silvers sport. Non commercial the Glen at Pinchbeck and the Welland at Spalding are very good - though you wouldn't use a feeder on the latter two.
And of course you could always chance your arm at Holme Pierrpont.

Thanks Andy, grateful. I did e-mail Hallcroft, but got no reply from them. Funny how some-places don't seem as good as others when it comes to anglers advice. Rich.
