Coarse Fishing:

Gary from South Wales with a lovely 24lb Mirror caught on a large piece of Luncheon meat and a borrowed rod! Here on the coast in mid-wales the weather has been very mild, sunny and dry with virtually no rain at all.

Steffan Bell from Rossendale and his friends had over 50 Carp each on a day when everything was right for them.

Mrs Rickie Freeman on Balenporth had an 11lb Common from the margins while her daughter had a 4½lb mirror.

A proud youngster shows off his catch of a lovely skimmer Bream Many Carp around the 10-12lb mark were being caught in the margins on various bait’s including sausage, luncheon meats, maggots and floating bread.

Many families (Dad, Mum etc) had brilliant days fishing in our “novices” pool with everyone catching many good fish in the margins with the best bait being bacon grill on the hook and small pieces being regularly flicked around the float. Quite a number of junior anglers fishing for the first time in the “novices” pool had some fine Carp and Bream. Just when we were hoping for a good double figure carp to be caught Gary Lawrie of Abercynon obliged by catching a cracking 24lb 4oz Linear Mirror on luncheon meat. Gary was extremely lucky to land the fish as it took him around one of our aerators in the Main Lake and by holding his rod high he was able to coax his line free and after a further 15 minute tussle landed the fish. Early morning and evening stalking the margins with floating bread has produced many good fish in all of our Coarse lakes. Best Grass Carp so far has been one of 9lb 3oz taken from the House Lake.

Trout Fishing:

A fine example of our lovely 5lb Rainbow Trout on a wet fly from the Trout Pools Many good fish have been caught this month with plenty in the 3-4lb bracket.Best times being early morning or late afternoon with Many fish topping during the last hour of sunlight.

Earlier in the month Most were being taken on lures but as the month progressed buzzers were starting to catch with the occasional fish were being taken on a dry. Early in the month Richard Elliott from Llangeitho had a 6.5lb Rainbow on a Diawl Bach, John Davies of Chirbury fishing the Welsh Witch Flies tied by his wife had Rainbows of 8lb 6oz, 8lb and 7lb 14oz amongst his bag of 24 all on catch and release. John’s wife Keri’s best fish was one of 6lb 14oz while Gary Lawrie of Abercynon caught a 4¾lb rainbow on a fritz just in time for a barbecue!

December:

Many double figure Carp have been caught the past month with Many at this time of the year stall falling to floating bread, bacon grill or fresh sausage. Most fish being caught close in especially under or near bushes. Nick Clements of Cilgraig near Llandysul fishing floating bread in atrocious weather had 15 Carp. The best 3 were Carp of 10lb 2oz, 10lb 8oz and 12lb 10oz. On his next trip here, the 15th, October, Nick using the same tactics had a 15lb Common Carp. On the 27th, October a 22 ½ lb Mirror carp was caught on luncheon meat. Regular Bryan Scott of Aberystwyth and a specialist at fishing with uncooked sausage meat regularly catches 24+ Carp into double figures. His tactics are to use sausage under a pole float on a float rod fished close in. Our best Carp so far this year has been a 24 1/4lb Mirror caught by Gary Lawrie of Cardiff.

Through the actions of the Fishery Owners and some regulars we have now established a Nineoaks Fishing Club, fully insured and operational. The club is now seeking additional members and club members will have some special benefit’s at the Fishery. Please call or email us if you are interested in joining the club?

We are restricting trout fishing two of our three lakes because we are planning to drain and net the lake known as Weir. Due to the weather the netting exercise has been postponed a couple of times. As soon as we are able we hope to accomplish the task and restore the lake and the stock of Trout back to it’s former self. Trout fishing continues to be productive with Many 4 fish bags weighing over 10lbs. Average fish being about 2lb each. Most being caught on a floating line with long leader using rubber daddies, imitation shrimp and green Montana’s.

Following the heavy snow and frozen lakes, except for the very hardy angler very few have ventured out. Most small Carp and decent Roach have come from the Novices Pool, mainly of float fished sweetcorn. All other lakes being covered in thick ice.
