Malcolm Quayle was like a ‘Cheshire Cat’ this morning with a smile beaming right across his face! Why? It was because he was telling me about his new PB Common of 26-08 as well as two other stunning 20lb+ Mirrors. He has also still got 24 hours to go! Cherry Lake has been very quiet, angler wise this week. An empty Lodge and Cottage along with a last minute cancellation due to work has meant …

I often get comments from guests that I do not post much news about Cherry Pool and it’s Egret Lodge. In truth this is often because the guests do not let me have any photos or provide the detail. I am pleased to say that thanks to Luke Williams I am able to do a post just on Cherry Pool this week. Cherry Pool is our fantastic mixed fishery. Recently it has been producing a …

Jimmy Manning was delighted with the start to his stay in Heron Lodge landing a 22-08 and this fabulous 27-08 Mirror below in the first 24 hours of his stay. Both came on small white pop-ups fished over small beds of bait. Rather stupidly I opened my big mouth saying …

Jimmy Manning was delighted with the start to his stay in Heron Lodge landing a 22-08 and this fabulous 27-08 Mirror below in the first 24 hours of his stay. Both came on small white pop-ups fished over small beds of bait. Rather stupidly I opened my big mouth saying something like ‘if you don’t catch anything else this trip, then this Carp makes it all worthwhile’!! Well almost literally as I said this the …

I am very pleased to say that the Cherry Lake carp have at last begun to feed on anglers baits this weekend with eight Carp, including 7 over 20lb+, being landed by Sunday afternoon. The steady drop in water temperature seems to have triggered the Carp out of their ‘late summer holiday slumber’ and they are beginning to feed up for the coming winter. We have our fingers crossed that the next few weeks will …

Sam and Steve Dowie have enjoyed their family stay in the Cottage this week. Despite the obvious tough conditions of bright sunshine, very high air pressure and mist they have managed to land 6 Carp between them with son Sam beating Dad Steve 4-2. They used their obvious experience to …

Sam and Steve Dowie have enjoyed their family stay in the Cottage this week. Despite the obvious tough conditions of bright sunshine, very high air pressure and mist they have managed to land 6 Carp between them with son Sam beating Dad Steve 4-2. They used their obvious experience to fish very sensibly. By which I mean resting the swim during the day when all the Carp wanted to do was cruise (this no doubt …

On meeting the two guys on Friday afternoon they explained they were fishing …

At last, and after a long wait, Cherry Lake has at last produced it’s 10th different 30 of 2015. Aaron Heydon-Jones is the latest member of the Cherry Lakes 30+ club. Aaron has been holidaying in Grebe Lodge with his partner Sarah Knowland and their delightful baby Elsie. Whilst I am delighted to see this Carp safely in Aaron’s landing net, the highlight of my week was holding Elsie! A real little sweetheart! Aaron has …

Well the early Autumn struggle goes on across the Cotswold Water Park, frustratingly goes on. The Cherry Lakes complex is no exception. The main Cherry Lake continues to be much more difficult than normal, with just 5 Carp landed and several lost. The biggest of these was caught by one of our regular guests, Allen Long, fishing in Grebe Lodge. This particular, Koi-looking Ghost Common Carp, below came out at 23-08 and was a very …

As some of you will have noticed there has been ‘radio silence’ from Cherry Lakes for the last two weeks. I have been on holiday….fishing of course! Firstly an update on Cherry Lakes. The fishing has continued to be very difficult and slow on Cherry Lake, Dave tells me that although we have had a few lost fish over the last ten days, the Carp appear to be feeding on naturals and are steering away …

Firstly, an apology for being a little slow in this latest update. This is principally because I have been pre-occupied with the build up to, and clear up since, our 30th Anniversary party on Saturday. It was certainly a good and memorable bash! Over the last week, the Carp across all the lakes have been very visible but have been proving to be somewhat harder to catch than normal. This has been frustrating for all, …
