Fishing season returns to Himley Hall
Angling insurance customers may be pleased to hear the new fishing season has begun at Himley Hall.
The Dudley News reports how individuals are invited to try their luck in the Great Pool following its three-month closure.
Councillor David Stanley, cabinet member for environment and culture, said: “Every year we have to close the pool for a few months to replenish stocks and prepare the pool for the new season.”
However, the site is now open to the public once again and tickets cost £5.10 with concessions available for £2.55 from Monday to Friday.
The pool is accessible daily and is known as “one of the premier fishing venues in the Midlands,” according to Mr Stanley.
Anglers are advised to keep an eye out for roach, bream, rudd, mirror, perch, grass and tench when fishing at the pond.
The pool is located in the grounds of Himley Hall, which was originally an 18th century manor house before being demolished to make way for a Palladian mansion.
