DECEMBER 2017

 

THE FISHERY IS CLOSED – LAKES ARE FROZEN.

Fishing has been good throughout November with many Anglers catching up to their catch limit of 10 fish during their session. The colder weather has made the Trout more active and interested in the following  patterns –  Minky, Green & Black Montana, Cats Whiskers & Nomad.  Rowland Elvidge, a new Angler to our Fishery,  had a good fight with his 5lbs 8oz Trout which he submitted to the Trout Masters.  We continue to stock quality, hard fighting Trout and we look forward to welcoming you for some great Winter Sport.  We have continued to stock Rainbows, Browns and Blues in Lake 3.  Lake 1 and 2 are stocked with Rainbows and Browns and we are happy for our Anglers to take their Brownies home if they wish.  

 

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 and Car Park for our Anglers this Winter.  Audrey has settled happily into semi-retirement in her new home, Lake View, on the Farm. 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. We wish everyone Season’s Greetings and to thank our Anglers for their continued support throughout 2017. We look forward to welcoming you back on the 1st January for some exciting Fishing with fully stocked Lakes.
