Lifeless pools to become coaching facility

by Angling Times |

TWO unused pits in a patch of woodland are set to be transformed into a facility that’ll benefit both angling and wildlife.

If you fish, it’s almost impossible to walk past a patch of water without wondering what it might hold, even if it resembles little more than a stagnant ditch. But Mark Egerton, a Level 2 Angling Coach at Try Angling, is showing that with some effort and investment, you can turn the most unlikely of places into fishing havens.

“I stumbled across a patch of woodland with two small pits amidst the Delamere Estate near my home in Cheshire. Instantly, I saw its potential,” he told us.

“I purchased the land and plan to turn it into a fishery with easy access, making it ideal for coaching disabled people and children with SEN.”

Work is set to start in April, and the pool will be canal-style and stocked with a mix of species. While it won’t be open to the public, you’ll be able to book a day with Mark at the water once it’s complete.
