Hi all,
Following some feedback, we're going to try and update the news part of the site more often and I'd also encourage you to look at our blog from time to time.

Fishing has been tricky due to conditions on occasion but really great on others!

I myself had three fish in around 45 mins when I picked a rod up for what felt (and actually was) months! It was on Sunday, which had been one of the tough days..just goes to show what can happen as the sun (yes there was a bit) started to go down.

Mr Mitchell caught his first ever fish on Monday - a fairly ordinary 2 1/4 lb rainbow, but you never forget your first fish do you?

Mr Mitchell (pictured above) caught his trout on the bait pond using a good old fashioned worms.

Yesterday (Wednesday 11 Sept) it was a cold and wet day at the fishery, but fishing was excellent!!

Andrew caught and returned 11 on the fly pond, and the bait pond fished well too with many anglers bagging up with their quota.

There was a nice 6lb fish caught on the fly pond by a local gent using a red hot head damsel. (the weapon of choice for me on Sunday night too!)

So, I guess the message is, don't let the poor weather conditions put you off. Remember the old truism, there's no such thing as bad weather just bad clothing!  Get yourself wrapped up and get into some fish!
