Oxfords Hinksey Lake is set to become an anglers paradise. The local environment agency has decided to promote angling in a development programme to introduce newcomers to the sport. Plans include the creation of three new ecological islands, at a cost of 20,000, and the construction of four new fishing stations at the southern end of the lake, which will accommodate disabled anglers. The lakeside will get new vegetation to increase the diversity of the local plant and animal life. Experts have said that they intend to create a habitat for pond snails, hog lice, caddisfly and damselfly larvae, providing food for the lakes fish, dragonflies, newts, frogs, toads and bats.
