Hello noel I have been a member of Tunstall Fishery for about 6 years to become a member there is a waiting list there is 200 members at a cost this season 100, boats are 10 a day supply your own electric motor, we have to kill our first fish then it's C&R you are also allowed to hire a boat on your own, It's value for money where can you fish 7 days a week for 100 for browns and rainbows best brown last year 9lb, on Tues and Wed evenings in the warmer months members have mini comps in the boats. I'll PM you with regard to the secretary address if you want it.Regards Robbie

Aye timberdog, I've fished with John Liddle a few times he is a brilliant tyer and yet I've traded flies with him, some-times when I've been in the boat if I see John on the bank I've picked him up at the lodge and fished the boat with him and I have learnt from him, he is a good alround angler and caught the biggest brown last season at 8lb-8oz.There's only one problem with Tunstall it's a country park open to the public and although we have signs up not to approach anglers or keep a way from the waters edge, they like to stand behind us and put there safety and eye's at risk thats why I like to fish the evening rise and the far bank.Regards Robbie
