Glad Wors­brough’s got its sec­ond wind – I love the place...

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

WORS­BROUGH Reser­voir in Barnsley was one of my favourite places to fish when I was grow­ing up in the 1990s. It was full of skim­mers and roach and gave me a great ground­ing in feeder and pole fish­ing.

So I was as dis­ap­pointed as any­one when it be­came al­most im­pos­si­ble to catch any­thing there. Cor­morants were blamed, and cer­tainly the trees around the lake held a lot of the birds, es­pe­cially dur­ing the win­ter.

Now, though, Wors­brough is back, and it’s great to see it host­ing ‘proper’ matches again (even if it’s now all about carp). I might even have a go there my­self soon – once I’ve beefed up my gear, that is! Al­bert Booth, Barnsley
