August Update

 

We have been virtually  fully booked with a variety of different guests, with father and son parties to grandfathers mum and dad and a daughter fishing! To just good friends, who love carping!  

The small lake has proved to be fun for the ladies/children and recently an elderly gentleman -

"My 85 year old father had some of his most enjoyable fishing in recent years in the small lake."

Most importantly the guests are having a good lot of bites and saying how much they like Watersmeet and the facilities.

"We both really enjoyed the fishing."

 "Watersmeet is a great venue with great fishing and first class accommodation that has something to offer everyone."

As new owners we felt it was important to buy new equipment.  We have provided what we feel is good quality equipment - Fox de luxe unhooking mats, Wychwood landing nets, tracker weigh slings and Fox tripods. With a large Renegade barrow.

"The equipment supplied on the main lake is top notch and saves room in the car" - from one guest recently 

"Equipment provided was good quality and the barrow made life easy" - also said our guest last week who enjoyed using them and having space in his car for any extras.

One customer said that during their week 

"Most fish were caught in the evening or through the night." 

Whereas the following week the guests caught a fair number without any night fishing, just fishing evening and days. Fishing takes time and a variety of methods to be tried out.

 Watersmeet is that special place to try out those tight lines once again - We welcome you back very soon!  (One of our recent customers was on his 5 or 6th visit!)

July Update

We, the owners, have just come back from a week at Watersmeet.  we had a fabulous time relaxing with plenty of BBQs going on in the evening sunshine.

Not a lot of time to fish but you can see there were a couple of beauties that came out.  These two awesome fish have not been seen for some time!  The fish on the main lake were generally not feeding due to high temperatures, which were well into 30+ degrees.  It was too hot to fish much in the day.  

My daughter tried her hand at fishing on the small lake. An entertaining afternoon was had in competitive sport!  When the main lake is slow the carp on the small lake always seem to be hungry. It's definitely worth dipping a rod in to so what catches.  Great fun for novices, with a bit of help, as they are not all small carp! 

Jobs still had to be done. It was surprising to see how much the trees had overgrown and one small tree had toppled into the water, grass to be cut flower bed to weed and water. All had to be dealt with ready for our next guests.

Great Catch - The Elusive Grass Carp

Despite temperatures of 30C degrees - Reece managed to catch one we haven't seen for sometime!

The fishing was very slow due to soaring temperatures which are said to be even higher next week. 

Luckily we have a quiet week - the only one not booked this year and it will give the time for the fish to just take in the rays and chill ready for next weeks guests.

Yesterday we had another booking for next year! Don't hang around in case that week you might be thinking of has already been booked!!

Chillaxing in Idyllic Surroundings at Watersmeet

This week the Willis Party had some great catches (checkout the feedback and catch report).

 

They fished on both lakes using the kohlanta house boilie, similar to cell, keeping bait quantities small.

 

Fishing is tiring and what better surroundings to relax and take a doze.

Caroline, Jake and their daughter had a successful weeks fishing at Watersmeet.

They had a good catch of 23 fish - With a great mix of fish as you can see.

 

 Even catching one of the CATFISH!

 

The catches were of variouse sizes as below

Catfish - 45lb 7 oz

Common - 19lb 8 oz - 32lb 4oz

 Jake used mixed baits and varied sizes, using a snowman rig.

 

He fished mainly nights until early morning. He used the house bait Kohlanta and cell boilie mixture.

 

It was great to hear him say

"Excellent condition fish" and that "My family and I had  a great week."

 

We have yet to hear that the newly stocked 40's have made an appearance!  

 

Hopefully photos will follow

May Update

We are into our fourth week of guests for 2017.  The weather has been changeable with very hot humid weather to cooler wet weather. 

All the anglers appear to be catching well and loving the new swims and the super new equipment has been much appreciated (making more room in your car).

Watersmeet is such a beautiful peaceful setting to enjoy a weeks fishing with fabulous accommodation.

One customer has described the accommodation as A+! They had a fantastic week and have already booked for next year.  They finished up with a massive catch of 38 fish using the house bait Kohlanta.

Another customer recently said

 “We had a great time at Watersmeet it is a great well kept venue with some stunning carp. I will be informing my fellow anglers what a place it is. Hope to fish your venue again soon” 

We hope that the catching keep at this level and some of the newly stocked fish and some ofthe 40”s  all start to show their face and fins soon! 

Bookings are already rolling in for 2018 !!  That’s a bonus too!!

April update

We have had a busy time during April clearing old trees away at the lakeside and generally tidying the bankside. A number of irises and some Lilly plants have been planted to add further interest to the lake for the anglers and a shelter for the carp. Having some leftover gravel from the swim build, two gravel areas have been added, between swim 2 and 3 to create a further feature for anglers.

New solar lights have been added at each swim for that night fishing experience. The new swims have a solid base, deeper steps and a hand rail making them safer and user friendly. Also with an additional slot to house the landing net.

Outdoor furniture has been painted and the house has had a lick of paint here and there. That all important BBQ area is looking ready for that first "barbie" session!

Starting this year we are providing Landing nets, extra large unhooking mats, weigh slings and a tripod. Of course and that all important refresh bucket. All free of charge. Cutting down luggage space in your car and providing safe equipment "U.K. virus free" for our fish.

All fishermen must bring that all important carp care kit as a definite must for all customers visiting our lake as the health and care of our fish is paramount. This is now been added as one of our rules.

We shall now be concentrating on those last few details to be done around and about the lake and house before the first guests arrive.

Winter at Watersmeet

It has been cold and wet a lot of the time, but on the sunny days we took the opportunity to get to work - chopping trees that were either dead or ones that we thought were overgrown and needed removing. We also had delivery of some new trees which have been planted near the house.

I tried to squeeze in some fishing on the big lake but it really wasn't the weather for it - I did take some photos so you can imagine you are there! (I did fish a small time on the small lake which when you find the right feeding spot lots of beautiful carp can be caught) - even in high winds and torrential rain!

The countdown to the open season is on and we are working hard to make it the best it can be for the new season!
