West­wood Lakes boss gets my vote for his mid-match weigh-ins

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

FAIR play to West­wood Lakes for putting fish wel­fare first.

I read in last week’s Angling Times that the boss is in­tro­duc­ing a half-time weigh-in for matches, and there’s no doubt that this new pol­icy will put some peo­ple off vis­it­ing the com­plex.

Plenty of fish­ery own­ers would bow to the pres­sure of visi­tors and aban­don a half-time weigh-in, but when tem­per­a­tures are sky­high it makes sense to in­tro­duce measures like this to pre­vent fish from be­com­ing stressed.

West­wood has dis­played fan­tas­tic fish­ery manage­ment, and if I was a lo­cal I would cer­tainly con­tinue to fish there. Ray Bar­ron, Winch­ester
