Mod­ern Wors­brough re­mains a great fish­ery

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

LAST week’s ar­ti­cle on Wors­brough Reser­voir cer­tainly whet­ted my ap­petite for another ses­sion on there!

Back in the early 1990s it was prob­a­bly the best sil­ver­fish wa­ter in the land. You could catch 50lb of bream on the feeder or win­kle out 20lb of roach on the pole.

You’d need plenty of skill and tac­ti­cal knowl­edge to put to­gether such nets.

The fish­ing was good all year round – you’d sim­ply fol­low the fish down the reser­voir into the deeper wa­ter as the tem­per­a­tures dropped!

Things may have changed over the years but it seems the ‘new’ Wors­brough is ev­ery bit as im­pres­sive as I re­mem­ber.
