We begin this report with the very sad news that Dan and Michelle Gale will now not be coming to take over the lease at Duncton Mill – due to personal reasons they felt that they were unable to take up the opportunity to be custodians of this beautiful place.
This means some adjustments on our part and sadly for us a delay on our new life in Devon – we will be staying at Duncton until next Summer so business, memberships, corporate and club bookings will continue as usual – Caroline will be baking lemon drizzle cakes for a while yet!
We really have appreciated everyones support over the past months in attending the ‘Meet the Members’ Day and our Farewell Fishing Day last Saturday – both days were really successful with some wonderful fish caught, including a specimen 11lb Blue caught by Robert Hughes – you can see the photograph on our twitter account, your kind words and support on these 2 days meant a huge amount to us both – sadly you are going to have to put up with us for a while yet !
Now the fishing news….
October so far has brought some lovely rain, which the much depleted aquifers needed – after another long hot Summer it is great to see these conditions which have meant cooler and fresher water in the lakes, this has resulted in some great fishing on Rosie’s and Coot. Fish have been taking flys sub surface with blue damsel, montana and gold head – daddys proving the best pattern, as these conditions continue expect the fish to stay nearer the surface, so use floating lines.
We are now fully open to Day Tickets – if you wanted to book please leave a message on answerphone, as we are often out delivering or on the farm so are not in the office to answer your call. Please remember that as the days get cooler the log burner will be lit in the club room, with tea, coffee and cake available throughout the day.
We look forward to seeing you beside the lakes very soon – any queries or concerns please email, phone or catch us beside the lakes or in the fishery yard.
