Rookery is an excellent water and is an ideal location for a Tench session. All pegs are facing the golf course or on the island where there are just 2 pegs. This water is right in the middle of Vale Royal Abbey Golf Course. This means careful access to the waters, around the tee & fairway of the 7th hole. Don’t walk on the fairway as we get complaints and you may get a bang on the head from a white missile. The track to the water is quite a distance and once again its uphill at the end of the day. Please be very conscious of the litter issues, as we are granted access to the water from the golf club and they are concerned about litter and indeed other aspects of our presence. We have lost night fishing rights already because of the litter issue and may lose the whole pool if we don’t start acting more carefully. Its up to you? There are more than a fair share of water insects around so if you’re susceptible an insect repellant might be a good idea.
