Looks as if you had a good day. How does Dever compare with Avington for you?

Very Happy

I fished Dever late Aug, had a cracking day, but to be truthful, I had more fun on the River next to the lakes! Several small browns, biggest a pound, and grayling, all on a little size 20 klink and four weight, excellent!

Hi Sussex

I too have good fun fishing that bit of the Dever for the Browns and the Grayling!

Do they now charge extra for this?

Confused

No it was all part of the ticket price MA, I don’t no where the rumour about charging extra for it came about?

I like watching those fish from the bridge on the main road!

Thanks for dispersing the rumour!

Cool
