Winter News Report

It has been a very wet & mild time this winter and difficult to get out and do any ground work but we have managed some tree felling around Island Lake and the gardens, the paths around the lakes have held up well but will need a bit of work when it dry's up. The gardens are coming very early this year with all the plants being early I hope they don't get damaged with late frost in March April.

Copse Lake has settled in well and we have now finished the stocking with C4 & C5 carp to 16lb from VS fishery and C3 & C4 Leney carp to 10lb from Lower Berryfield Fishery,

Dave Brewer landed a cracking 31.04 mirror  from Island Lake.This is the fish I'v been after for a while as it had a new home waiting ,so she now resides in the Copse lake where she will have a stress free 12 months to hopefully grow even bigger.

The fishing has been very good up to and over the Christmas period for winter months only slowing down in the last three weeks with Steve Beard getting in on the action in September landing 2 new PB's first "Blackspot" at 33.08 and then topped that with "Peanut" at 34lb!!!!  Nice one mate top bit of angling.

Chris Hart had a nice result  landing two cracking 30's, Blackspot at 34lb and 3 Scales at a new top weight of 32lb  well done Chris

Leigh short had a great trip in November landing 4 fish, Leigh has been after 'Clover" for some time now and it all came right when he banked her at 36.06!!!! Well done mate If that wasn't enough he also banked the 'Mint Common' at 32.02 'Pearly' at 28.12 and a cracking 19lb mirror!!! Top angling indeed.

Barry Bellamy did well with the Mint Common at 31.8oz  also  'Clover' at 36.06 , a stunning 26.14 & 25+ and a unknown common of 22.12.

Chris Gillard had these two stunning home grown mirror's in early January from the island lake!! The first one is 21lb and is our first home grown 20+ the second is 18+. These fish are only 6/7 years old so are doing fantastically well, if anyone has recently caught fish between 15 and 20lb and has pics it would be great if you could msg them over, there was 10 fish in the netting of 2011 which were 10lb and put back in not to been seen again... i'm sure some have been caught but I'v not seen the pics. Thanks Tony.

The fishing has slowed a bit since the temperatures have dropped but when the fishing  one bite is enough!!!!  Alan Greenwood landed  'Danny's Fish' at 27.06.

Chris Connington had a great session in 'Jezzers' landing fish of 27.04, 26.14 & 24.04 at the end of January top angling mate. Chris Gillard also had two cracking fish the same day from the point and Two more fish out 26+ and 27+ mirrors for Dave Page., It just shows pick the lucky day and tight lines.

Island Lake now has possibly 15  30lb + fish with  5 or six of them over 35lb to 40lb+

Willow has been fishing really well over the last few weeks, Scott Johnson has had over 10 fish in 2 sessions now and Shaun Kellow has also landed some nice fish including a cracking 22+ mirror. Paul Webber has also had a couple of nice fish to 15+
