New for 2018

After conversations with respected anglers and Fisheries consultants about bio-security we have decided only to allow lake nets, mats and slings. So will be supplying our own net, unhooking mat and weighing sling for each angler.

Netting Alder


Some time lapse video from the Alder netting using the guys as walking depth gauges, water level is down by about a meter for the netting. Jack split the lake in two with nets and netted each half separately. The netting of the deep end was mainly done by boat. Many thanks to Jack and Dan of JS Fisheries who did a great job in horrible weather! 

This netting was carried out to reduce the amount of silver fish.

Catch report for 2017

 

I've worked through the Alder catch reports for 2017, I don't have every single report and they were not always reported in the same format so there is a little guesswork in there for the exact breakdown

665 carp were caught; 292 twenties, 274 thirties and 42 forties. This is an average of 11.7 carp per angler.

The chart of average catch per angler shows that the lake fished it's best during the summer, despite the heat and the drought!

Best individual result was Roger Spendif with 42 carp on his first week, he also caught 35 the second week showing that it wasn't a fluke. Tim Suttle also landed 35 carp in slightly less than a week. Congratulations to both anglers and thanks to everybody who fished with us in 2017.

Cutting Back

Some photos from the last few weeks, whilst Alder has been completely frozen over for the first time in years.

We're taking advantage of Alder Lake being frozen to cut back some of the overhanging branches and have 
doubled the size of Silver Birch Swim.

Perseverance pays off x 50

Terry, Gary and Charlie thought that the early season fishing they had booked would either be very hard or very good.

Terry was into a fish first on the Saturday night but a debate ensued as to whether it counted as the fish had spat out the hook and then foul hooked itself. Sunday went from bad to worse as Charlie bravely defended the group from an attack by a rogue sweetcorn can. Charlie managed to subdue the tin but it wounded him with a gash to the finger that required four stitches at Gueret hospital.

With most of Sunday gone, the group came up for a roast dinner and then prepared for the night’s carping. Sunday night was quiet, as were Monday and Tuesday nights. On Wednesday Gary landed a PB and new species with a medium-sized grass carp, but no one else had fish. Thursday was quiet and the week was starting to look like a bit of a wash-out but they persevered with the fishing, maintaining the flow of ground bait and varying rigs and locations.

By Saturday morning it was grins all round: the fish had finally come on to the feed. Charlie had landed a fish, despite angling with one hand wrapped up in bandages and waterproof bag. Gary was over the moon as he landed a thirty for a new PB, but he could hardly believe when he went on to land a whopping 52lb carp. Terry missed several runs as he was rushing round helping everybody else, but then he had caught the first fish of the week (or did he, does a foul hook count?).

Overall Terry, Garry (The Perch Whisperer) and Charlie caught 2 x teens, 3 x twenties, 1 x thirty, 1 x fifty. The also set a new record for fastest rebooking. They’d booked to come back in September within 48 hours, I suspect even before they’d finished unpacking! Look forward to seeing you in September.

Catch statistics 2014 for Alder Lake

Another good year on Alder with an overall average catch (total carp/total anglers)  of 23 carp per angler per week.

Best fish and lake record is 58lbs set by Ard van der Heijden.

The weekly average catch per angler ranges from a low of 11, to a high of 41 for Ben Thompson and his dad (That was about 70 for Ben and 12 for his dad). Individuals have occasionally blanked but no group has.

A notable mention goes to Danny Potter from Australia who landed 73 carp on his first fishing trip to europe for many years. He wasn't even phased by a visit from Rosie, our Berkshire sow who called by his tent one night.

Carp over 50lbs were landed on 7 occasions and while I don't think that that are 7 different fifties, I am sure that there are more than one.

I only have records for 5 forties landed this year so I think that many of the 40lb cohort have grown into fifties.

There were 114 thirties landed, many of those high thirties (Hopefully next years 40's).

Thanks to all our anglers who kept such good records to share with the rest of the carping community.

Chris
