Barry our regular holiday client caught a low double early in the daytime, and then followed by his PB a fantastic 40lb mirror; which I think Dave had at 37lb earlier in the year - so the fish are growing well!
Dave also caught a nice brace of fish, including a lovely 28lb mirror, again as always, caught on the Nash Robin Red & Scopex Squid.
We are proud to announce that we are one of the official sponsors for the following events for 2011: carpin4cancer (our 2nd year); world carp classic (Our 3rd year); carpin4heroes; and thebigfish.tv; and in September we will be attending the event.

Mark with an very long and hard-fighting 34lb mirror carp
Still hard fishing with crazy weather conditions, cold winds in between blazing hot sunshine! Mark and Dan finished their week off with a 38lb and a 33lb. Our day tripper Dave had a 23lb, who is recovering from a recent stroke and getting much better, well done! A mid 20lb to Mark from Hastings and our couple from Holland, who had a great week, still waiting for their photos! Most fish coming either early morning or late in the evening, as always, on the Nash.

Dan with a 37lb 8oz mirror carp.
The last 2 months have been difficult fishing with the temperatures at night falling to 0 deg.C with very unsettled days of rain with cold winds. Now that February is out the way, the weather seems to be changing, but we have still managed some good fish with the biggest being a 41lb mirror, along with a 38lb and a good few 20lb+ fish.
Our lakeside apartments have been busy through the month of Feb, with fish being caught, but certain weeks a bit of a struggle due to the weather - but most clients caught and had a lot of fun! The last 2 days 23/24 Feb, the fishing has took a turn for the best with 4 fish to 34lb for Mark and Dan his son, who are on a weeks fishing holiday and sightseeing - and are having a great time!
