A Day's Fishing at Lillybelle
I have my very good friend Tony Ottewell staying for a few days, the old fella is recovering from a mini stroke just 2 weeks ago, 78 years old and still smashing the carp out..... 7 fish in 7 hours fishing at Lillybelle today...... he has a pretty good gilly mind you!!
Netting and Additional Stocking 2017
Some photos from the netting and additional stocking of 20 carp at Lillybelle this February.
New Ladies Record
Last week Lillybelle welcomed team Ashima's Emily Blake and Martin Earlam. A very productive week was had by both anglers, but Emily took all honours with most fish banked and biggest fish of the week too. To cap it all Emily also broke our current ladies record not once but twice, with a new pb and record of 36lb 12oz and then topped that with a new pb and ladies record of 38lb 8 oz. Great Angling Emily!!

Many of you will have spoken to Linda over the phone when organising your holiday with us. She took a week out in July along with partner Bill and friend Alan to fish Lillybelle. Bill has kindly written us a round-up of the week's highlights.

Lake record lives on!
It was our pleasure to have the Browning boys on the lake this week, and after a very quick start our record for most fish caught in a week was soon the target for Mark, Paul, Neil and dad Roy.
The guys managed 114 fish, just 2 shy of the record for 4 anglers. I know the boys left slightly disappointed to miss out, but i think breaking the century and pushing so close was a fantastic effort.
Lillybelle's New Venue Video
Here it is, a very enjoyable session filmed at the end of April....
More New Arrivals
Yesterday brought another trip to the Bigot Fish Farm. I was actually there purchasing some new stock for Lillypool. Sometimes though I just cant resist the lure of a big bar of gold!!!
My day started at 5am this morning, but surely there is no better reason for such an early start, than the arrival of 10 new faces here at Lillybelle. These new fish are between 32 and 40lb, and come straght to us from the Vasseur fish farm here in France. I'm pretty sure this is fisherman equivalent to some new Jimmy Choo's!!!
