Notes

It certainly was a week of proper winter weather and anglers were greeted most mornings by a heavy frost and clear skies. Despite these conditions, the gentle winds and sun did have some buzzers hatching off through the day and fish did freely eat from the surface which is great to see. Most anglers took … Continue reading Fishing Report 17th January 2022 »

The new year started off in a similar vein of form as last year finished. A mixed bag of weather and some very cold nights certainly haven’t put the fish off in the slightest with some great bags coming to the anglers willing to venture out and have a go. Despite the temperature, the fish … Continue reading Fishing Report 13th January 2022 »

Another fantastic week of weather saw plenty of surface activity all over the fishery. Some very mild conditions for the time of year kept the fish feeding hard and anglers had some fantastic bags with several into the teens. Along with great catch rates, plenty of big fish made an appearance too with 3 doubles … Continue reading Fishing Report 20th December 2021 »

Well that was far more like it! The second named storm of the winter didn’t really hit with the ferocity that was forecast. Some rain and wind appeared but the fallout didn’t put the fish off one bit with anglers all reporting good bags of fish throughout the week. Most had bags around 5-6 fish … Continue reading Fishing Report 13th December 2021 »

It’s fair to say that the expected weather for this time of year has finally arrived with low single figure day temperatures and even colder temperatures at night but, if anything, a few frosts and some icy cold winds have seemed to spur the fish on a little more. Despite the tough weather conditions we … Continue reading Fishing Report 6th December 2021 »

It was been a funny old week weather-wise with everything from glorious winter sunshine (which, at times, felt quite warm on your face) to biting winds and low single figure temperatures, all capped off with the first named storm of the winter. We had it all! Needless to say, angler numbers weren’t high towards the … Continue reading Fishing Report 29th November 2021 »

Last week was a far better week one with the fish finally starting to feed as we would expect at this time of the year. Plenty of anglers hit the water and some had some barnstorming days. Best bag of the week was 12 with several others recording 5, 6 and 7 fish, most notably … Continue reading Fishing Report 22nd November 2021 »

Hi folks, JT back here again with a look at the last few days on the fishery and it was yet another mixed week with the weather and, consequently, the fishing on Haywards Farm Lake experienced some ups and downs but we saw some good catches, with fish to 6lb. Early morning tended to bring … Continue reading Fishing Report 15th November 2021 »

Last week was another very unsettled one in respect of the weather, which didn’t do anything to make life easy for anglers. Freezing overnight temperatures brought some really chilly mornings which, when conditions were still, led to some great hatches of buzzers with fish feeding freely on the surface. Sadly this changed to squally, cold … Continue reading Fishing Report 8th November 2021 »

It’s been another mixed week with the weather, from howling winds and torrential downpours to mild and flat calm – we saw it all! Despite the varied conditions, plenty of fish were landed up to around 5lb including some beautiful blues. Floating lines and sink tips have been the ‘go-to’, but on the windier days … Continue reading Fishing Report 1st November 2021 »
