CHRISTMAS GIFTS – A days fishing at Duncton makes the perfect gift – or why not treat someone to a whole years membership!
Writing this we are finally starting to get some cold weather blowing in, its quite a shock after such a long warm Autumn. Fishing has been excellent throughout November, with great sport on all the lakes. With the mild conditions the fish were near the top with quite a few fish taken on dries which is unusual for November. As you will know we have been stocking Artic Char for a month now and many anglers have had one of these lovely fish, they fight really well and also taste really good. It has been a surprise with the char that they have not gone deep and can usually be seen swimming about a foot down, and in fact they are often taking surface flies.
With the colder weather arriving the fish will start to drop in the water column with Winter patterns starting to work, best patterns ill be Blue Damsel, Bloodworm, Black Buzzer and Montana.
Don’t forget to take a look around our new web site and you can click onto the twitter icon to see whats happening on a daily basis – this will be especially useful for fly tips and if we get icy weather I can update daily the conditions on the lakes.
During the Winter remember the log fire will be burning away and Carolines cakes will keep coming so if you need refuge on a cold day you know where to go.
We are open every day except Christmas Day – so if you are in need of a breath of fresh air to blow the cobwebs away, come and visit us over the Christmas holidays.
All it remains to say is we wish all our members and day tickets a Happy Christmas and New Year.
