It's snow joke as winter bites

THE earliest widespread snowfall for 17 years has hit many parts of the UK and the beleaguered tackle trade hope this winter won’t be as bad as last year.

In England, initial snow fell mainly across the north-east and east with up to 8 cm recorded with a slight covering across the south-west but the Met Office think the cold snap could last two weeks.

Matches have been called off, lakes and canals have frozen, and many venues have been empty, as people in most regions of the country have had problems travelling.
Woodland Lakes owner Robin Fletcher up in North Yorkshire summed up the thoughts of many: ‘Hopefully this is just short and sweet.’

For full reaction to the terrible start to the winter, read this week’s Angler’s Mail magazine (November 30 issue).

Many anglers, of course, are snug and warm indoors this week, reading the latest AM mag… getting clued up on how and where to catch more fish when conditions improve!
