COVID-19 and status of closure

2020-04-01T14:42:24+01:00

We are receiving a lot of messages daily asking us when we will be reopening the fishery. The truth is that we really don’t know yet. As a business we are following government guidelines and we have a duty of care to our customers and the local community. Whilst it is not safe to risk anglers mixing or have our bailiffs doing their rounds, we will not be reopening the fishery. With angling often being a solo sporting activity, we believe that when soft social distancing resumes, we will be able to reopen the fishery for solo anglers. What matters [...]

Our advice on the current health situation

2020-03-14T10:33:06+00:00

Our advice on the current health situation Some large events of over 100 people are being cancelled nationwide but as it stands there is currently no reason to close our lakes due to the type and style of sporting activity that we offer. All of our fishing swims are at least three metres apart and fishing is an ideal sole activity with low risk. You really can’t beat the fresh air, lovely scenery, time to relax and unwind. Should you have a persistent cough or temperature then please be sensible and stay at home. Please be sure to follow regular [...]

Netting lake 5 February 2020

2020-02-23T21:41:49+00:00

Netting on Monday saw a small team of our bailiffs, plus a couple of helpful volunteers gather down at the lakes in anticipation of seeing a net full of fish. Aiming to net a ‘sample’ of lake 5 due to excess brambles and rough margins the netting was a success. Due to news of devastating predation at other local fishing venues we were keen to find out how our stock levels were in lake 5, especially on the smaller side of species as there was plenty of fry seen in the lake last summer. [...]

Sash Carp return before the storm

2020-02-10T14:39:47+00:00

Top anglers Sash Carp (+ Chris) setting up yesterday on a beautiful morning pre storm in hope of catching something weighty. So far this Jan & Feb it’s not been easy to catch big weights but a trip out is never wasted with the natural delights of a beautiful fishery and setting up and learning the water. We are all really keen to see the stock come on the feed this year and it’s only a matter of time. With stock levels of over 300 Carp over the 3.3 acre lake the lake most certainly isn’t short of potential but [...]
