SEPTEMBER 2019

 

THE FISHERY IS OPEN – WELCOME BACK TO THE SECOND HALF OF THE SEASON! 

   

 

 

September is a great month for fishing, we just need it to cool down a bit. The nights have been colder which has cooled our water and in turn this makes the fish active.  This week our Anglers found the Trout feeding on daphnia on the surface on Lake 3 and this is proving to be a bit of a challenge.  There has been a great deal of activity on the waters whilst this feeding frenzy has been playing out and our Anglers have seen for themselves that we have stocked some sizable fish in all 3 Lakes.   Popular patterns that have worked are Gold head Montana – Green/Black and Shrimp. We are experiencing an Indian Summer and it has been good to see everyone relaxing and enjoying our beautiful Wealden setting before the Autumn really sets in.  Changing colours on the trees are indicative of this unfolding. We look forward to welcoming you.

 

 

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 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 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 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.
