Fishing has been good throughout January. Clive Pettifer caught a 9lb Rainbow at the end of the month  which fought well on a Cats Whisker on Lake 3, using a slow retrieve, quite deep around the dam. He was pleased to return his fish to fight another day!  Our Anglers are clearly reaping the benefit from stocking the Lakes with variable sized fish which has made for enjoyable Winter sport.  Boris the Trophy Brown (9lbs+) remains illusive in Lake 3, although he is constantly sighted, and we look forward to him being caught this year. Boris is a catch & release Brown and the Angler who does hook him will be given a bottle of their choice. A photo to validate the catch will need to be taken. 


NEW FOR 2018: PARKING & PERMITS AT THE FISHERY – Please park in our new car park which is clearly marked on the right of the driveway, (there are building materials in part of it at the moment but still plenty of room to park), we suggest you tackle up and then walk down the drive to purchase your permit.  It is a little confusing when you get to the bottom of the drive with two properties in your sight so for clarity please do as follows to collect your permits and please press hard on the doorbells – thank you:-

Gaynor (Audrey’s daughter) and her husband Richard have settled happily in the Farmhouse after the refurbishment in 2017 and the new Fishing Lodge is now well underway and we would hope to have this completed for our Anglers by late Spring.  It has been a very industrious 3 years on the farm with our developments unfolding and we would like to thank all our Anglers for their continued support throughout this 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.
