OCTOBER 2017

 

THE FISHERY IS OPEN.

Autumn has arrived in all its glory and we are all enjoying the benefits of a beautiful Indian Summer.  The Trout remain quite a challenge but some fighting fish have been caught on the following patterns – Diawl Bach, Green & Black Montana, Bloodworm and Cats Whiskers. The Fish are taking at various depths but using a slow retrieve.   The Lakes have been re-stocked with quality, hard fighting Trout and we look forward to welcoming you for some great Autumn Sport.   

 

We are delighted to have been voted into the Top 50 of the Top 100 Stillwater Trout Fisheries 2017 in the British Isles by the independent panel of judges at Trout Fisherman Magazine. We remain a Trout Master Fishery .

The Trophy Brownie weighing 9 lb 3 oz which went into Lake 3 (nicknamed Boris – photo in the weigh-in room) some months ago has still has not been caught, despite sightings of it cruising around, so the challenge is really on for 2017.  This will be a catch and release trophy fish but anyone who does catch it will receive a bottle of their choice.  A photo of the fish to validate the catch will need to be provided. 

 

 

Gaynor (Audrey’s daughter) and her husband Richard have now moved back into the Farmhouse after the refurbishment/extension and will be starting the development of the new fishing lodge for our Anglers this Autumn.  Audrey has settled happily into semi-retirement in her new home, Lake View, on the Farm and she continues to welcome Anglers to the Fishery on Monday and Friday which she greatly enjoys. Please come to the new Bungalow on your right as you come down the drive to pick up your permits. 

We hope our Anglers will enjoy the improvements to the Fishery as we progress with our plans and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.  

 

CHRISTMAS CLOSING: 

The Fishery will be closed from sunset on the 17th December 2017 and will re-open on 1st January 2018.
