Two boys (about 7) and their Dadhad a cracking day today, fishing with flat method feeders and small white chocolate boilies they had many Carp with lots about 4-5lb, beautiful Roach 1/2lb+ with many 6oz or so. Best fish was an 11lb Ghost Mirror. The dad described it as "brilliant."

Most fish have been caught on sweetcorn whith the bulk being good sized Roach with the occasional Carp. With the margins being clear most fish have been a caught a couple of rod lengths out.

Carl, a visiting angler, using a pole at about 6 meters has had plenty of quality Roach and no Carp. Local angler, Mark, also fishing sweetcorn had mainly Roach, no skimmers, and 11 Carp with 4 around 5lb each. Just as dusk was closing in he changed bait to small piece of curry flavoured luncheon and fished in the margin on peg #2. After a good struggle he landed this beautiful 14.5lb Common Carp.

Trout Fishing: Ok, so the weather's cold and blustery, however an Orange Montana, Red Montana, White Rubber Daddy, fished deep and very slow, all have produced good Trout, even with the weather as damp as it's been the Cat's whisker or similar flies have also produced some great sport.

About Nineoaks:

Nine Oaks Angling center lies on the edge of the hamlet of Oakford ("Derwen Gam" in Welsh) which is roughly 2 miles inland from the Cardigan Bay coast in Ceredigion, West Wales, and 20 miles south of Aberystwyth. Ceredigion is one of the least populated counties in Wales, providing 60 miles of spectacular coastline with untouched beaches and miles of uncongested coastal footpaths. The counties main towns are Aberystwyth, Cardigan, Lampeter, and Aberaeron.

Our location is perfect for touring Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire. We have holiday cottages and static caravans and 3 Trout Pools and 3 Coarse Lakes. We provide excellent Trout and top-class general Coarse Fishing. The Trout Lakes contain mainly Rainbow and Blue Trout from 2lb plus small Brownies. The Coarse Lakes hold all varieties of Carp including Commons, Mirrors, Koi and Grass Carp up to 20lb+, Roach, Bream and skimmer Bream, Tench and small chub and small Barbel.

Our holiday accommodation is spotlessly clean, fresh and consists of self catering holiday cottages; Welsh Tourist Board graded at 4star standard, and quality Static Caravans. All are very close to the lakes and all are suitable for couples, for family holidays (with or without fishing) or specifically Fishing Holidays. The cottages are disabled friendly. About 4 miles away, in a south-westerly direction, is the lovely old fishing village of New Quay (Wales) with its crystal clear waters and beautiful sweeping, sandy bays. Also 4 miles away, northerly, is the busy coastal town of Aberaeron. With its myriad of colourful Victorian houses and shops. Cardigan is 20 miles south and Carmarthen roughly 30 miles away easterly inland.

A photograph of the lounge/diner of craigfryn, the small cottage-annexeNine Oaks has two self catering holiday cottages of 4 star standard, as graded by the Welsh Tourist Board. One is a large semi-detached bungalow and the other a small cottage annexe.

A photograph of the large lounge of Snowdrop, our semi-detached bungalowThey are both absolutely spotlessly clean, sweet smelling, and fully equipped with toaster, microwave, kettle etc. TV, DVD & freeview, in fact everything - all you need to bring are your personal towels, spare tea towels and your food and of course spare clothing, and if you're fishing, your tackle and bait too?

Both are ideal for the discerning angler for a Fishing Holiday, or a holiday with their wife, partner, family or friends; as a holiday base to tour or visit the surrounding area.

We are ideal for the avid family angler, where they can fish in the morning, then have a great time spending the day with the family, and finally having a few more hours fishing in the evening? Just perfect and no black marks too!
