Some of the stocking at the Lay-by Pit in recent years
Some 4 to 5 tub loads of Crucian Carp and 5 to 6 tub loads of skimmers were introduced to the pit by Ian Moore and Glenn Shipley on 5 December.
The fish looked healthy and fit and shot off as soon as they were introduced to the water. Not one dead or lethargic fish.
Looks like Ian has found a good supplier!
Tom Harbinson provided the 600 small mirror carp up to 10 ounces, and 100 bigger Commons to 5 lbs put in to the pit on 10 March, which it is hoped will eat the weed and colour the water.
We guess about 8 -10000 roach mainly 3 - 5 ozs with some 8 ozs , and the odd bream, went into the Lay-by from our Otley College friends netting activities, who we thank sincerely for a very good deal.
Thanks due to Ian Moore and Paul Dean who went to collect them.
Some great little Crucian Carp - 1000 little beauties up to 2/3 ozs were introduced to the pit on 17 July
