Dylan Price Jones a member of the welsh junior carp team, after getting his first pay packet from his first job, the first place he wanted to come was White Springs.

I have to say his fish care was exemplary especially for someone 16years of age, treating the fish with carp care, the handling of the fish, everything ready.

A pleasure to have you on our lake young man.
