      How about Tunnel Barn Farm - Blythe Waters - Packington Somers - Manor Farm - the list is almost endless in the Midlands, most need a few visits to sort out the winning methods but TBF and Manor Farm are fish filled waters where you should get a few bites.

        all depends on what tactics you perfer to fish? as to where you go? if you are an out and out pellet man then Tunnel barn or Manor farm are where you want to be, if you like fishing big feeders/wagglers for bream/carp then there is Maver larford, If you like a mixed fishery with low weights but made up with a higher percentage of silvers the there is hunnington? loads of choices but pointess going to manor farm or tunnel if you cant stand fishing pellet and paste, as nothing else works! (with the exception of a maggot feeder when bloody freezing):P

                if you fancy canals you could try the Dudley canal, but theres some good anglers fish it and its mainly b/j that they fish

                    they also run a league on saturdays but its finished till march... Pellets must be bought on site, maggotts, caster & sweetcorn all have there day, the best pegs are usually on the bit that juts out but you can get a good weight from most pegs

                      Most of the opens around the Midlands are dominated by the venue regulars who know the venues/pegs inside out through fishing them 2 or 3 times a week. Its difficult for a newcomer to frame unless you can get some good info off one of the regulars. Best plan is to start with the 'affordable' matches and treat them as a practice/pleasure session and be prepared to lose a tenner, which is not bad for 5 hours entertainment.

                      Why dont you try the dog lane opens (dont know what the cost is)
