Notes

The fishing on Haywards Farm Lake continues to be excellent for the time of year with the water temperature remaining cool enough to keep the fish feeding. Mayflies accounted for a few fish early on in the week but the hatches have now all but finished and buzzers remain the go to pattern for many … Continue reading Week ending 9th June 2019 »

Notes

In another great week of fishing on Haywards Farm Lake the highlight was probably Adam and Clive Smith‘s superb result that saw Adam net 19 rainbows from 3lb to 9lb and Clive 8 fish from 3lb to 7lb. Buzzers and blobs were the patterns doing the business for them. Buzzers and blobs continued to be … Continue reading Week ending 26th May 2019 »

Best Fish: 14lb (estimated) to junior angler James Penwright
Rod Average: 4.2

Notes

This is not a full week‘s catch returns because the weekend of 11th and 12th May was our annual Sportfish Show and the lake was closed to fishing, except for show use. It got some great use during the course of the show too with Jeremy Wade showing that lure fishing will (mostly) always outfish … Continue reading Week ending 12th May 2019 »

Average Weight: 3lb
Best Fish: 6lb
Rod Average: 3.4

Notes

The fish are currently up in the water and we are starting to see a few beginning to take dries but diawl bachs, cat‘s whiskers, buzzers and hot head damsels were the ‘go to‘ patterns for the week on Haywards Farm Lake with both bank and boat anglers catching fish up to 6lb. If you … Continue reading Week ending 5th May 2019 »

Best Fish: 7lb rainbow to J. Rendel
Rod Average: 3.1

Notes

Catches were down a little this week, although Haywards Farm Lake continues to fish well, particularly to those fishers who know how to present a buzzer – the fish are on them big time – although this week it was red patterns taking the lion‘s share of the fish, rather than black. Apart from buzzers … Continue reading Week ending 28th April 2019 »

Notes

Hot, sunny conditions over the Easter weekend saw a lot of surface activity but brought a slow down in sport and boat anglers fared much better than those on the bank during the warm spell. Call us on 0118 930 3860 to book ahead if you want to get afloat. Buzzers remain the ‘go to‘ … Continue reading Week ending 21st April 2019 »

Notes

It has been another exceptional week here at the Sportfish Game Fishing Centre with plenty of good fish showing from both bank and boat. Boats have probably just edged the returns with black and red buzzers fished under an indicator and allowed to drift around on the breeze accounting for an awful lot of fish. … Continue reading Week ending 14th April 2019 »
