Believe it or not the additional activity in our ponds and rivers is having a positive effect on natural fishing stocks! Why? Well, apart from the special fish introduced into the waterways for the festival, anglers are mostly catching goldfish and weeds. Clearing out the weeds, now the spawning is over, will help the quality of the water and allow new fresh growth, which is good for the plant-eating fish.

Goldfish, a scourge of the ponds, are responsible for eating a lot of the newly hatched fry. With fewer goldfish around, we can hope to see fish stocks increase, once the Summer Festival is over. Of course we will be monitoring the stocks in the Shire closely and letting the mayor know if there are any problems.

A spacious burrow has been found and secured at a reasonable rent at 2 Chalk Road, Harville. This week I have been running backwards and forwards to the Taxidermists, and now all the trophies are in place, ready for our first visitors.

All that remains is to chase up the delivery of fishing rods for the shop and to stock our cold store with catfish and dace. Adverts have been placed in all the main journals and I have been busy sending out personal invitations. Thank you to everyone who has helped make this a success.
