DECEMBER 2019

 

THE FISHERY IS OPEN  

 

  

Fishing has been good at Tenterden during November/early December with our Anglers going home with varying weights of fish and smiles on their faces.  Gary White (1st visit to our Fishery) caught a superb 7lbs 14 oz Rainbow on a Black Mosaic with Jungle Cock on a Ghost Tip Line 6lb 12 foot leader. David Allen caught a 7lbs 3 oz Rainbow today weighing 7lbs 3 oz on Lake 2  using a Daddy Longlegs – both fish put up a great fight. We have also had a Brownie out, Chad Goymer caught a beauty weighing 3lbs 3 oz on a Hares Ear.  Peter Beeny caught a super brace of Rainbows the largest weighing 5lbs. Please visit our Instagram Gallery for some recent photos.

With the festive season fast approaching and in the knowledge that some of our Anglers will be taking some well earned holiday, we have stocked all 3 lakes with some magnificent fish to make for some exciting fishing here at Tenterden and our Anglers are clearly reaping the rewards.  We hope you have a great time stalking them and enjoy your downtime fishing with us in peaceful surroundings away from the hustle and bustle of busy lives this Christmas & New Year.   We have posted our Christmas Closing period in this news update (see below) – we are only closed for one week for quality time with our own family.

 

  

Boris (9.5lbs) our trophy Brownie remains the challenge for 2020. 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 have a super new Fishing Lodge 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 has its own verandah for sitting out and enjoying the weather overlooking the Lake for some relaxing downtime. The Lodge provides a great space for our Anglers to have lunch/tea and shelter from a shower over a cup of tea/coffee with our compliments.  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 2019 in the British Isles by the independent panel of judges at Trout Fisherman Magazine and we have moved upwards in our ranking this year. We remain a Trout Master Fishery.

This also makes for a great Christmas present and can be purchased as a Gift Voucher.

 

We are very pleased to announce that the Fishery/Farm has become a Wedding Venue, for exclusive use, when the Fishery is closed in July and August and we are currently taking bookings for 2020 & 2021 – please see our Wedding Venue Heading on this website for further information and we are also a film shoot for Farm Locations. 

 

 

 CHRISTMAS CLOSING:  THE FISHERY WILL CLOSE AT SUNSET ON 22 DECEMBER AND WILL RE-OPEN AT 8.20AM ON 28 DECEMBER 2019.

WE WOULD LIKE TO WISH ALL OUR ANGLERS A VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING YOU AT OUR FRIENDLY FISHERY DURING THE FESTIVITIES.

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 4 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.
