We are approaching that time once famously described by Sir Alex Ferguson as ‘twitchy bum time’. We are now less than three weeks away from opening the new Pochard and Egret Lodges. The Lodges are built but there are an awful lot of finishing touches needed let along treating the inside of the Lodges before completing the fittings. I am sure we will get there but it will be stressful! We are delighted with both …

As regular followers of Cherry Lakes are aware, we have been very busy this winter. As well as building the new Lodges; we have also been creating a new stock pond so that we can hand rear some of our own cracking Carp in the future. For now though we need to buy in whenever we want to add to the stockings across Cherry Lakes. This winter though we have been adding to the Cherry …

Firstly an apology for my ‘radio silence’. As some of you know I have been working away for a while which coupled with the building programme has meant I have been flat out. I will try to do better! I think all the construction work has scared off a lot of prospective visitors this winter which is a shame given both Cherry Lake and Cherry Spring has been producing over the last month. At least …

Indeed Cherry Lake was partially frozen again on Saturday morning. Still, as he says, the Lodge is as ‘warm as toast’! Fred chose to stay in Kingfisher Lodge and has to date had two Carp, a 12lb …

The kitchen fitter starts next week which is a sure sign that we are on the home …

Fishery manager Dave is taking advantage of the absence of paying guests on Cherry Lake. Fishing from Grebe Lodge he took advantage of good conditions and a quiet Lake to land 5 Carp including these two Mirrors below of 23-08 and 22-04. Dave used Special Red tipped with a white piece of plastic corn to entice all the fish. It is interesting that it was the turn of some of the Mirror’s to feed after …

We have had a very quiet start to the new year here at Cherry Lakes. At one level this has been good news as we are very busy around the complex on various activities such as tree work and planting, as well as the ongoing construction of the House and Lodges. It is also a shame, because the Carp across both Cherry Lake and Cherry Springs have obviously got themselves into full winter mode and …
