December 2017 Report

A DAYS FISHING or A YEARS MEMBERSHIP could make the perfect Christmas Present


Writing this in a bit of a Winter blast, its difficult to remember how warm late October and November was – we were still cutting the grass a few weeks ago and there were even a few butterflys around, with the warm weather conditions we were still getting fly hatches on the lakes which resulted with the fish taking smaller patterns.

Since late August the lakes have been fishing very well with this continuing right through November, the 3lb – 4lb fish we have been stocking have been fighting like trains, with best patterns being Blue Damsel, Buzzer and Montana.
Over the past week with the colder sunnier conditions the fish have gone much deeper which has meant that sinking lines have been the order of the day, good fly patterns to try are the above although Bloodworm is now starting to work.
Don’t forget that on these cold chilly days the fire will be going, together with tea, coffee and cake so have a warm up and a cuppa.

As we enter the Winter months, with potential icy conditions I will tweet on a daily basis regarding the conditions of the lakes by 8am so please check our twitter feed by clicking on the icon on our web site to save you a wasted journey, the twitter feed will also show recent catches and fishery updates.

Christmas is approaching quickly so remember we have gift vouchers for a days fishing or alternatively a years membership which will make great gifts for someone who can be tricky to buy for!

Lastly we would like to wish all our members and day anglers a very Happy Christmas, and Healthy New Year!
