I'm really enjoying reading this again. I was born and brought up in the Lincolnshire Wolds and, as a teenager, even drank in the Black Horse at Donnington and played cricket for my village team on the pitch in front of Hainton Hall. Who knows, maybe I unknowingly rubbed shoulders with some of the greats.

Came across this old photograph of a man and boy fishing at Woldale in the 1920's, long before the Carp Catchers Club days. Thought it might be of interest.

Wonderfully composed photo from nearly a century ago.

What a tranquil scene. Wish I had a time machine.

Me too, it's buggered now. Had the pleasure to fish there once, not allowed to tell the tale though.

I live local to Woldale and was under the impression that it was fished by a very select "invitation only" syndicate who managed the water with diligence.

Whilst the hopes that the Carp Catchers had of it being a match for Redmire never materialised I am sad to hear that it has fallen into decline.
