MARCH 2019






The last 10 days have been horrendous for most of  us with very high winds and rain and I was running around the Fishery like a mad woman trying to keep the water flow under control between the Lakes without flooding our neighbour. Fishing was not on the radar and too dangerous and I was fielding calls to return when calm is restored.  That day has come as I type this – Monday 18th- I am pleased to say, with sunshine and a few showers – thank goodness!  It feels like Spring is here with all the daffodils open on the driveway and the primroses out on Lake 1, looking pretty. 


So the start to March was pretty much written off  but I can report that February at Tenterden produced some good quality Rainbows with them putting up a good fight for our Anglers .  We have recently re-stocked the Lakes and I know there are some cracking Rainbows and Browns in the Lakes and you can see a photo of a couple of them in the Gallery.  Popular patterns have been the old faithful Montana to Hoppers, Diawl Bach, Damsels, & Cormorant and the Trout are currently feeding on the surface.   


The increased weight of our Trout is challenging Anglers and has giving them the sport they want and they have been rewarded for their efforts.  Now the weather has settled, dust off those rods and get yourself out in the beautiful Wealden countryside we have on offer here and enjoy a few hours downtime fishing with us.


Boris (9.5lbs) our trophy Brownie remains the challenge for 2019. Several Anglers have had the excitement of having him on the end of their line but everyone of them has been broken by him. 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. 


We offer Gift Vouchers for that special sporting gift please either ring on 01580 763201 or email to make your purchase. 


We look forward to welcoming you for some good Spring fishing with fully stocked lakes.

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 2018 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 4 years and remains very busy with the Fishery & Farm and is enjoying having her family around her.
