Region31 RO and now the Northwest liason Officer Jon Neafcy and i are old friends but since i have been driving a cab i sadly haven't fished with the Wigan Piker for a long time.
Jon invited me to join him at the end of October at a lake he has a timeshare on. Joining us was Tim Anderson from the Fens; a good mate of Jon's and a damn fine fella.
We managed a few pike between us but it was more of a social and a catch up. The accommodation was excellent and on site there was a great restaurant and bar. 2nd night it was an all you can eat pizza and pasta night which we thoroughly enjoyed in the restaurant and a few beers were sunk and stories were told.
Thanks Jon for a great time and Tim it was great to meet you and hope to fish with again soon.
