Its good to talk

Having viewed the farms web site I decided to speak to Wendy to discuss booking and suggested I may stay for 2 or 3 nights dependent on the fishing. I was keen to try the fishing, there are 4 lakes/ponds on the farm, but in fairness Wendy did say they had been predated by cormorants (not mentioned on the web site) but I was assured there are still some fish in them and as the fishing was free I decided to book. When I eventually arrived after travelling nearly all day it was pouring with rain and had been for most of the journey, so I called Wendy to check if the grass field would still be ok for my motorhome. Unfortunately she was not available so I left a message and not hearing back from her decided to risk it. Luckily all was fine. I never did hear back from Wendy. This is a pleasant slightly slopping site with views of the old Airfield, normally this would have been interesting but it is now awash with numerous very tall communication aerials so not so attractive. The next morning I walked to the lakes to decide which one to try first. In fact only 2 of the 4 lakes were fishable. 2 of them are completely covered in Lilly's and weed. The other 2 lakes the water was gin clear and you could see to the bottom, in between their weed and Lilly growth. It didn't look too promising, I threw a loaf of bread in to see if anything showed but I didn't see any fish at all. I tried for the morning but nothing. The lakes have been left to grow wild which is fine, and they looked glorious in the sun, but why suggest there are fish when there clearly isn't? I left after one night and still hadn't heard from, or meet the owners.
