As mentioned in the previous post (See: A walk around Teatown – Shadow Lake) you pass Vernay lake at the beginning of the Twin Lakes Loop trail and then return to it at the end. As I passed it on the way out I noticed these two people, presumably a father and daughter, fishing. On the way back about two hours later I passed them again, still fishing.

Unfortunately, you’re not allowed to fish in Vernay lake, as the sign (see picture below) right next to where they were fishing indicates. Maybe they missed it (although it’s hard to see how they could have as it’s right next to the trail as it descends to the lake). As I passed a woman (presumably from the Teatown administration) came along and very politely shooed them off.

I guess they managed to get at least two hours fishing in, which is not too bad. It’s about 1 hour 45 minutes too much for me. I’m not a fan of fishing. My cousin was an avid fisherman and when I was a child he once took me to a fishing competition. After about three days (at least that’s how long it felt to me. It was probably only a couple of hours) it ended and I won a prize! I was the only person not to catch anything! Maybe it was that experience that put me off fishing.
