Willington is a joy to fish with acres of space to backcast and a well maintained venue, completely private under lock and key as usual, with the added bonus of driving your car around the outside of the lake, especially handy when the heavens open and you need to run for cover.
Willington is a very peaceful getaway with plenty of wildlife to catch your eye now and then and without the odd glimpse of the power station to remind you where you are, (shown above),you could be miles from anywhere.
During the afternoon we got smothered in buzzers, so much so we just had to give them a go, my God! we wouldn't regret it. These rainbows were well and truly on the buzzer giving me my first buzzer session this year. The ferocious pulls had to be seen to be believed and watching that line slip away on buzzers is always superb. We both had plenty more fish on buzzers completing a wonderful days fishing at a superb stillwater. The rainbow below shows the quality and stamp of fish being caught today - fandabbydozy!
