Hi all.

I'm hoping soon when the weather improves a little warmer and if the Coronar Virus doesn't get me to fish my first time on the Specimen Lake. I've bought some tackle over the winter and think now I have everything required to meet White Springs requirement.

As I've never fished the Specimen lake before, can anyone advise me a good peg, with Disabled access to begin on?

I've purchased a New Bivvy so wont require a cabin as I want to try out my bivvy. Any help would be really appreciated and could management please advise me when it's best to book?

Best regards,

Brian (Born to fish)
