Sev­eral lo­cal wa­ters avail­able to let

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Etbusiness Daily -

IF you are a small club or in­deed a lo­cal club look­ing to add wa­ters to your port­fo­lio then I have some good news for you.

The En­vi­ron­ment Agency have ad­ver­tised 14 lots of water to let and sev­eral are close to Peter­bor­ough in­clud­ing the fa­mous River Wel­land which in­cludes the Spald­ing rights and also thetalling­ton sec­tions.

Sev­eral years ago it was not un­com­mon to see hun­dreds of an­glers lin­ing the banks each week­end but the huge weed prob­lem co­in­cid­ing with the demise of club book­ings from the likes of Coven­try, Le­ices­ter andy­ork­shire saw the river quickly drop in pop­u­lar­ity.

Add to all that the rise of com­mer­cial wa­ters and you can soon de­duce that there is not a lot of profit in con­trol­ling this once pres­ti­gious fish­ery, un­less of course you can get it for a very favourable rate.

Sev­eral clubs have tried to take it on over the years, but in the main have strug­gled to at­tract an­glers.

Along with the Wel­land, More­tons Leam, The Folly and the Great­ford Cut are also up for ten­der. The clos­ing date is May 31 and ten­ders need to go into Gresty Land Agency on 01780 753518.
