Another recent acquisition by the Association has been around 50 pegs on the River Witham roadside section between Kirkstead Bridge and Tattershall Bridge, which includes the famous 'Reedy Bay' pegs.
These pegs were always the 'hoped for' draw in the big matches that used to held every week back in the 70s, 80s, and 90s. This venue is now fully owned by Boston and District AA and was purchased outright late last year following the demise of the Witham and District Joint Angling Federation.
Most of the peg standings are still present underneath the overgrown banks but Witham bailiff John Baxter is spending as much time as possible re-establishing access to these pegs ready for the forthcoming season. Although the river suffers from similar water clarity problems as the drains in the summer, last years catches were most encouraging especially when there was any amount of colour in the water.
The pegs run from around 100 yards below Thorpe Tilney Lane End downstream through Reedy Bay to Walcott Pumper as shown on the map.
