NOVEMBER 2018

 

THE FISHERY IS OPEN FROM 8.20AM TO SUNSET – 7 DAYS A WEEK

CHRISTMAS CLOSING:  CLOSED MONDAY 24 DECEMBER – RE-OPEN 29 DECEMBER AT 8.20AM

We have all been enjoying the beautiful Autumn at the Fishery.  At long last the fishing is starting to normalise at Tenterden now the nights are getting colder and the water temperatures are dropping. The Trout are feeding approximately two feet under the surface and fly life is active.  Some good quality Rainbows ranging from 2 lbs to 7lb 8oz have been caught and given our Anglers some good sport. Sam Gray caught a 7lbs 8oz Rainbow on a Buzzer on Lake 3 and the fish gave him a real fight. He went home with a very big smile on his face – pic in the Gallery.  Popular patterns are Diawl Bach, Montana, Buzzers & Cats Whisker.  Anglers are using their honed tactics and its starting to pay off and the fish are fighting well.  

 

Boris (9.5lbs) our trophy Brownie was hooked on Lake 3 and he gave our Angler some exciting sport but sadly he broke him and Boris lives to fight another day and the challenge remains to get him finally landed!! Boris is a catch & release trophy fish and anyone who does land him will need to validate the catch with a photo and will be rewarded with a bottle of your choice.

 

We are delighted to let you know that the new Fishing Lodge is finished and we hope you will enjoy this relaxing social hub with kitchen and toilet facilities situated in an elevated position on the side of Lake 1. It will add a positive experience to your fishing here at Tenterden and encourage family and friends to come along too. There are some recent photos in the Gallery. If you would like to hire out our Lodge between 7pm & 10.30pm please contact Gaynor.

 

 

PARKING & FISHING PERMITS AT THE FISHERY – Our new car park is now in use for our Anglers, it is clearly sign posted as you come down the drive (the car park is on your left) and you will see a sign at the bottom of the driveway as you walk down, which informs you of where to purchase your fishing permit.

 

We are delighted to have been voted into the Top 50 of the Top 100 Stillwater Trout Fisheries 2018 in the British Isles by the independent panel of judges at Trout Fisherman Magazine. We remain a Trout Master Fishery.

Gaynor (Audrey’s daughter) and her husband Richard have settled happily in the Farmhouse after the refurbishment in 2017.  It has been a very industrious 3 years on the Farm with our developments. With the Fishing Lodge recently completed in July we are delighted to say that we have concluded our plans and would to thank all our Anglers for their support throughout this very busy time.  Audrey has now lived happily at Lake View for 3 years and remains very busy with the Fishery & Farm and is enjoying having her family around her.
