Hi mate, I'm also from Mcr. Well, Saddleworth North Mcr. Often go to the river Ouse in York for testing or if the weather is nice. Other than that I'll be going to Wales for fishing next year! Windermere is also on my list, plenty of places to stop and have a beer!

Great idea mate! Only trouble is the speed limit on Windermere!

Speed limits everywhere apart from sea! Although a sib can plane at the 10mph limit. Blasting around everywhere isn't always necessary if the weather is nice! The lochs in Scotland are an exception, Lomand is the closest to us, 4 hours ish. No speed limit, good fishing and its massive!
