December 2020

The month has started off well with consistent catches for most anglers. The smaller flies, damsels and black hot head flies seeming to do be faring well. As with winter fishing the fish have tended to come on certain times with mid-morning or late afternoons doing well. Plenty of our larger brownies are being caught.


We held our annual Brass Monkeys competition during the month with a great turn out of veteran and new anglers. The day started off with a social distanced breakfast before the anglers embarked onto the lakes.   Plenty of lovely fish came out with some beautiful hard fighting Arctic Char and big rainbows. Mrs Bromwich bagged up early with the biggest Arctic char of the day. Which she commented “fought like a steam train” 

We broke for lunch at midday with some scrumptious soup and artisan bread, which warmed everyone up for round 2. 

Fishing commenced with some great bag limits taken. Our member and regular Paddy Hill just by a whisker managed to catch the heaviest bag. Which earned him the coveted Brass Monkey trophy. Well done Paddy! 

We will plan more special days soon due to the popularity from the last few competitions held of late. Watch this space……..


We would like to remind anglers to take extra caution of the banks when fishing around the lakes due to the adverse weather conditions of late.


Nick, Dan would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and safe and Happy New 2021. We look forward to welcoming you back in the New Year.


With the Covid pandemic we will remind all anglers to please adhere to social distancing and to download NHS track and trace and to please scan in when you arrive at the fishery (we have the QR codes by the ticket office) . The gutting area will remain closed as with the Fishing Lodge and ticket office…. Please feel free to use our hand sanitizers on site.
