APRIL 2018




We are all delighted to have seen the sun shine in the last couple of days and our Anglers have been enjoying themselves on the Lakes. The Trout have gone deeper due to the sunshine and fishing has remained steady.  Peter Carroll taught Daniel Beaumont to fish recently and it was so enjoyable to watch them together on Lake 1 when Daniel caught his first brace of Rainbows on Bloodworm and then Peter caught a cracking 4lb Rainbow shortly after which was a great end to their afternoon. They went home with big smiles on their faces as you can see for yourselves on our Instagram Page. We embrace the youngsters to learn this skill set at Tenterden, they are the future of this exciting Sport.  Rick Bryant, one of our Regular Anglers,  caught a quality Rainbow on a Cats Whisker on Lake 3 which gave him some fun and weighed approximately 7lbs.  We suggest intermediate or sinking lines at the moment and popular patterns are Buzzer, Bloodworm, Minky, Cats Whisker, Goldhead Montana. Our Trout continue to fight well for our Anglers. Now that the evenings are longer, our Evening Permit which starts at 5pm has been popular with our Anglers coming into the Fishery, after work, for some tranquillity and downtime when the fish are on the move for the evening rise.



The Fishery/Farm is looking beautiful with the lambs in the fields and all the trees coming to life again and the daffodils in bloom on the driveway.  Our Anglers are getting used to the new facilities here and the new Car Park is working well.  Our new Fishing Lodge has now got a roof on and is starting to look the part and we know this development will be welcomed by our loyal and new Anglers. It will make the fishing experience at Tenterden more special having a Lakeside Lodge with beautiful views and comfortable facilities for all to enjoy.



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 sign posted and is on the left of the driveway (half way down), we suggest you tackle up and then walk down the drive to purchase your permit.  We now have a board at the bottom of our drive, on your right, informing you of where to purchase a permit to make life easier for all.


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 and our Trout Masters Fish Off is being held on the 20 May 2018 which we are greatly looking forward to hosting.

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.
