Good winter results from Cherry Springs and Chery Mere
The 2023 calendar is now open......don't miss out!
Monday 21 February 2022
Following on from my last update, the fishing on Cherry Springs and Cherry Mere has also been good this winter. Given I have been away, I am either unaware or more likely, I have simply forgotten what Dave has told me. So this update is more about the last week or so. I do know that the anglers who have been here since I have returned have done well.
I thought I would also repeat my message from my last post, to ensure that past guests are aware that our 2023 calendar is now open......................
Thanks to the on-going support from our many guests, who both continue to return as well as recommend us, coupled with our strong organic presence on Google etc, Cherry Lakes continues to grow in popularity.
Despite my determination to not open the 2023 bookings calendar until later this year, I have received increasing number of enquiries for 2023. So I have given in and have now opened next year's calendar as well as setting prices.
Demand is particularly high for Cherry Springs and Cherry Mere, we are essentially sold out for this year until November. I am anxious that returning guests do not miss out. So to encourage existing guests to think about returning in 2023, they can secure a 2023 reservation through just an initial deposit of £100. The remainder of the normal 50% deposit being due no later than 6 months before the start date. Please take advantage of this offer to make sure you don't miss out.
Guests staying in Kingfisher Lodge on Cherry Springs have been doing well since the turn of the year (the lake was essentially closed through December to enable us to undertake some work). James Fletcher stayed in Kingfisher Lodge last week. Casting to a number of different spots James landed over 15 Carp including 5 twenties to 23-08 . A great and very productive winter visit. The Cherry Lakes Dairy-Cream boilie doing the business for James. He caught both during the day and in the darkness as the photos above and below demonstrate.
Fishing couple Olivia Davies and Steve Lewis stayed in Kingfisher Lodge this weekend, and despite the gales they were pleased with their return of 6 Carp from Cherry Springs. Their catch included a new PB for Olivia, a 21lb. They left feeling very happy to have done well despite the weather.
Similar to Cherry Springs, Cherry Springs has proved to be it's normal productive self this winter. Adam and Sam Poole stayed in Pochard Lodge last week. I have already (!) forgotten how many they caught between them. I do however know that 15 year old Sam beat his PB, with this 25lb Mirror below. He rightly looks very pleased!
The Poole family were followed into Pochard Lodge this weekend by Sue Bennett and David Short. They both caught, sharing 8 Carp between them, including two PB's to Sue Bennet. The biggest, a 28-06 Common can be seen in the lead photo above, whilst her 25-08 night caught Mirror can be seen below. A cracking brace of upper twenties!
Well done to all the anglers mentioned above and especially to those setting new Personal Bests.
