this weeks fishing trip took me to Coniston Hall Lake, which is just out side of Skipton in the Yorkshire Dales. the lake is 24 acres and has a boat house and a cabin where you can find life jackets and boat seats. As well as a picnic area for the summer days. while there are boats for hire you can also choose to bank fish if you wish to.
We set off from home at 7am, it was a very dull morning with a low fog over the hills. we arrived at Coniston at around 8:15am. when you arrive to fish at the lake, you have to go to the hotel reception to pay for your ticket then drive down to the boat house. as we were driving down the track past the stunning views, we could see quiet clearly fish rising all over the lake. we stepped out of the car only to hear the sound of the birds in the trees and the water splashing up against the boats, oh and the off sheep.
