Welcome to the Winter Veterans festival 2018. We have 94 anglers over the age of 55 fishing over 4 days in 6 peg sections rotating between Twin Oaks, Trelawney, Jennys, Acorn and Canal, Pollawyn. Unfortunately the weather has taken a turn for the worse and we have seen the first frost of the autumn with temperatures dropping to -2 overnight and therefore we have seen a severe frost this morning which has slowed the fishing up dramatically although this has not managed to dampened the anglers sprits too much.
