Ceredigion Coarse Match Fishing: Facebook Posting; 10th, January

Well what a day at Furnace Mill Fishery today. It was windy all day but the fishing was ok. I had 11lb 2oz for 2nd in section and 3rd overall. Big thank you to www.anglingbaitclub.com for top quality bait’s.

Tomorrow of to see Bill Baker at Nine Oaks Fishery for some of the best roach fishing around and a catch up with some of the lads.

Coarse Fishing: 26th, January, although much milder than usual at this time of the year, the tougher anglers are catching some cracking Roach, and the occasional Carp. One angler, fishing with 8mm white chocolate boilies tipped with sweetcorn spent the whole day catching 1-1.5lb Bream from the Main Pool, plus catching and losing one or two good Carp.

Coarse Fishing: 16th, January, the very wet and windy conditions aren’t deterred the hardier anglers. Fishing with sweetcorn a rod length out, from the "helicopter pad" in the Main Lake has produced upwards of 60 Roach to 3/4lb. with Many 6 or 7oz each. Chris, a retired Headmaster from Pembrokeshire, finished his day with stacks of Roach, then went stalking mid-afternoon and finishing up with 6 Carp to roughly 8lb. Meanwhile, Ted from Cardigan, fishing Mussel or prawn has had good Carp and also plenty of quality Roach from the House Pool.

Trout Fishing: 16th, January, Orange Montana, fished very slow, has produced some good Trout, even when the weather has been damp and blustery. At this time of the year, Cat’s whiskerl’sish flies have generally produced some great sport.

February:

Coarse Fishing:

Mark, a local angler with his 14.5lb Common Carp

25th, February: Still windy and frequent showers, some heavy. However, the water has a good colour indicating that the first are moving and feeding. Two boys (about 7) and their Dadhad a cracking day today, fishing with flat method feeders and small white chocolate boilies they had many Carp with lots about 4-5lb, beautiful Roach 1/2lb+ with Many 6oz or so. Best fish was an 11lb Ghost Mirror. The dad described it as "brilliant."

21st, February: The rough recent weather beginning to abate a few more anglers have begun their first sessions of the year. Most fish have been caught on sweetcorn whith the bulk being good sized Roach with the occasional Carp. With the margins being clear most fish have been a caught a couple of rod lengths out.

Carl, a visiting angler, using a pole at about 6 meters has had plenty of quality Roach and no Carp. Local angler, Mark, also fishing sweetcorn had mainly Roach, no skimmers, and 11 Carp with 4 around 5lb each. Just as dusk was closing in he changed bait to small piece of curry flavoured luncheon and fished in the margin on peg #2. After a good struggle he landed this beautiful 14.5lb Common Carp. Click on image to enlarge it.

Trout Fishing:

Ok, so the weather’s cold and blustery, however an Orange Montana, Red Montana, White Rubber Daddy, fished deep and very slow, all have produced good Trout, even with the weather as damp as it’s been the Cat’s whisker or similar flies have also produced some great sport.

30th, April. Hi, Jonathan Worrall, I’ve just returned from fishing the trout lakes on the complex three times in the last week, and have been blown away by the standard and condition of the fish and the fishery. I took eleven fish the first trip, six the next and ten today all on short sessions. Fish averaged between two and three pounds and took everything from bibios to cats whiskers. Will definitely be back soon, highly recommend the fishery. Jon

4th, April: Vice chairman Andrew Kirtley had a days fishing on the house pool at Nine Oaks today. He had some great fishing with some nice bream and quality roach.

December:

19th, December: 2015 - Xmas Match Results of the 2015 Christmas Open here at Nine Oaks Fishery. What a good day it was for everyone who turned up. Carl Worrall finished with 50lb (for second place). He commented that on any other day this time of year it should have won but today I got my bottom kicked.
Peg 11, as everyone knows is the best carp peg on the pool but you've still got to get the fish out and fair play to today's winner with a fantastic 77lb was Bethan Jones. Well done Bethan top angling from a relative beginner.
3rd was the "Ships Cat" aka Mick Butler, and 4th was Mr Andrew Kirtley. A big thanks to Andrew Kirtley for his continued support by providing the winners rosettes.

Carl Worrall's Facebook posting reads:-Just got back from the club's Christmas open at Nine Oaks Fishery and what a good day it was for everyone who turned up. I was happy with 50lb and on any other day this time of year it should have won but today I got my bottom kicked. Peg 11, we all know it is the best carp peg on the pool but saying that you've still got to get the fish out and fair play to today's winner with a fantastic 77lb was Bethan Jones well done Bethan top angling. 3rd was the Ships Cat Mick Carol Butler Butler and 4th was Mr Andrew Kirtley

12th, December: Following days of attrocious weather there was plenty of support for round 4 of the Silver fishing only league match today here at Nine Oaks Fishery. The weather rained most of the day but there was no wind. With this mild weather the carp were feeding like it was summer making it hard to get some silvers in the net. Pegs 2 3 14 and 15 are always good for big bags of silvers but the carp just took over and between them could only get just over 5lb in roach. Mick Butler was fishing a good match with some nice fish. League leader Jonathan Davies was catching but like everyone else more cap then silvers. Peg 12 was Carl Worrall who had a good start with some nice roach and a chub of 3lb+ but like everyone else the carp stopped any big weight from the peg. 1st Carl Worrall 13lb 4oz 2nd Mick Butler 8lb 13oz 3rd Jonathan Davies 5lb 14oz

6th, December: Andy's Peg 11Andrew Kirtley - I have been to the CCA winter league at Nineoaks today, the match was a rover and I drew 5 out of the bag meaning that I was 5th off too find my peg. As luck would have it the others didn't pick one of my favourite pegs so the temptation was too great not to go there, No. 11 has been good to me in the past and today was no different. Had a great day catching quality roach, shallow at 2 + 3 and some good Carp tight against some overhanging bushes at 11 mtrs , weighed in 52lb 5oz with one carp being a Barney Rubble. Ended the day with a win so it was a very good day, well done Shaun Bethell with a second, and Carl Worrall third, well done Carl Worral for his great silver fish weight, hope you do the same next week ??.
