Ian lands the Big Common

One of our anglers this week Ian Ockwell has landed the big common this afternoon. I was driving past as he was playing it, so was lucky enough to net it for him and be able to give him confirmation immediately that it was she. At 45lb 8oz,s she was lightly down on her best weight, she is obviously munching hard at the moment and I wouldnt be surprised to see her much heavier before the season is out.....how big will she be when you visit, and will you be the lucky angler that holds her next?

Cracking fish landed by a truly lovely guy.... Well done Ian.

Bruno's little adventure......

My very good friend and neighbour Bruno took full advantage of the fact that no-one seems very interested in visiting us this March, even with a winter discount of 50% off. 


Bruno fished three nights last week, with the lake to himself he plotted up in the new double swim.....


Arriving on Monday at lunchtime, he set up and got a little bait out to the spots. At 5pm he called me to photograph a beautiful 26lb 4oz Common, an hour later and I was jogging back down track, this time to photograph a lovely 35lb mirror. Then as I arrived back at home the phone rang again, I trotted along and found a beaming Bruno cradling the Long Two tone fish, which went its largest weight at 44lb's. 

In the early hours of Tuesday he landed another 33lb mirror...

Wednesday morning at 4am, he landed a lovely chocolate coloured 24lb mirror, and followed this up at 6am with a 35lb 2oz mirror. That evening he added to his tally with a 26lb 4oz mirror, followed at 6pm by a chunky 40lb 8oz mirror.

At first light on Thursday he finished off with another 33lb mirror for good Luck.....

Bruno thanks you all very much :-)

My Favourite Time Of Year..........

This has to be my favourite time of the year. Every day we walk around the lake and see something new... Willows have been budding beautifully the last couple of weeks and are turning a delicious shade of green after the rain of last week

We have flowers budding and blooming all around the lake. The fish are very active and are feeding well. With the forecast for mild weather for the rest of March, along with some wet weather. It looks very good for a bite or two........

Work party week 25th February 2017.....

For the first year we were actually doing two work party weeks.

The second week my old mate Paul arrived as he has done for the last five years. This year I challenged even him and his considerable skills, especially making him work with French solder and flux to virtually replace all pipework in shower block.

Numerous other jobs were done over the first few days, mostly indoors as the weather was poor. Thursday and Friday we had allocated to redoing the Double swim, which had over time deteriorated. Andrew a good friend popped in to help with heavy stuff, and we all cracked on and with five minutes to spare managed to pull it out of the bag... Not only does it look better, it will last longer, and is much easier to fish from comfortably.

Paul also nicked a couple of fish from Cabin swim. He only really fished a few hours during the evening. Two mirrors of 23lb 8oz and 24lb. Many thanks Paul. You are a bloody star mate, we can't thank you enough.

Worparty Week 16th February 2017.......

Many thanks to Lloyd, Glenn, Kane, and of course Alison who came over for a weeks fishing, fun and hard work recently. I'm glad to report we managed to get loads done around the place.

This included a new terrace attached to our van, a huge tree which was falling a bit at a time down, and a huge job clearing snags around the island from the double swim around to Stones... a hard physical job which will make a fantastic difference to all those that fish any of the swims around that side of island.

The lads also managed a few fish during their trip... Lloyd nicked a 28lb mirror, while Glenn, fishing to the back of the island caught very well with five thirties to 39lb 4oz........

Massively appreciate all your hard work guys

Work Party News Update

We are lucky enough to have old friends over helping us out on a work party this week.....

Glenn
 and Lloyd have worked hard on a number of projects this week. First of all we took a day or two building the terrace for our caravan, to give us a wee bit more space in the summer. Yesterday we took down a huge old dead tree which was starting to look somewhat dangerous.....

Today has mostly involved clearing of all snags around the islands, a job which is hard slow work, we expec
t this to be finished by Friday..... It has not been all work and no play though for the guys with Lloyd first off the mark with this beautiful 28lb mirror taken Tuesday night.....

Last night Glenn landed a corking 38lb mirror, and followed that with a 32lb 12oz mirror this morning. Young kane that is with them has also got in on the action with a pb tench of 8lb 8oz's. Fingers crossed for a few more before they go home....

Photos of Glenn's fish will be posted as soon as I can.....

Ps.....

Weather is turning much milder guys and we still have plenty of available space for March as part of our 1/2 price winter offer..... Come and visit Molyneux and have some half price fun, never know you could just catch a cracker........
