OCTOBER 2018

 

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

 

We have all been enjoying the Indian Summer at the Fishery.  At long last the fishing is starting to normalise at Tenterden and the Trout are now feeding on fry on Lake 3 approximately one foot under the surface and fly life is active.  Some good quality Rainbows ranging from 2 lbs to 5lb 8oz have been caught and given our Anglers some good sport.  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 hard.  

 

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.

 

 

The colder nights and well received rainfall have cooled the waters and slowly our water levels are rising, which is all positive. Trout like the cold.  It has been an extreme Summer this year and we have got off lightly really with only 5 fatalities, we know other Fisheries have had a terrible time and we closed as usual for 6 weeks in July & August which was absolutely the right thing in the extreme heat we have experienced and this gave the Lakes a good rest for the second half of the season.  So now we look forward to some great Autumn fishing.

 

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 & 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 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.
