Mapperley Reservoir is in Derbyshire...
IN THE excellent ‘Ten Greatest Carp Waters of All Time’ feature (October 24 issue), you included Mapperley Reservoir, which was good to see.
It’s still a wonderful place to fish, but unfortunately you got the details wrong. Mapperley Reservoir is, in fact, in Derbyshire, not Nottinghamshire as you stated, and the fishing there is controlled by NBC No5 Area Fishing Club.
Day tickets are available on the bank for just £3 which offers excellent value for money I’m sure you will agree.
If anybody would like any information on Mapperley Reservoir or any other of our waters, feel free to give me a call. Mark Chapman, match secretary, NCB No5 FC, tel: 01773 533809, mob: 07743 622427
