25th, : Carl Worrall from Aberystwyth, had a few hours spare today so he came here and fished in the house pool.
Carl's few hours A good afternoon fishing? Bait was a pint of casters. He setup on the left side of the lake, to get a bit of tree cover as it was raining and very windy and not the best day for fishing. He knows that the pool is full of carp, tench, bream, cracking roach with some chub and barbel; but he wanted to have some fun and targeted the Bream and Roach. Fishing the pole at about 4 or 5 meters with a KC silver float to 0.13 line and hook length of 0.11 with a size 20 B911 F1 hook. First drop a carp of 3lb then another to 2lb then a good run of quality roach with the odd skimmer. He kept drip-feeding casters and after a couple of hours ran out-of bait.
He thought that the fishing was fantastic with some quality roach to 1lb, some nice skimmers and a few carp. The best part about today was the winter ticket for the house pool costs just õ; which is fantastic value for money especially when you realise that this pool also has some big carp!

23rd, : Ian's lovely Trout A good day's fishing anywhere?

Today saw a lull in the weather following the many days of continuous wind and rain. Ian and Bill from Borth took their opportunity to go Trout fishing and were rewarded with a grand day's sport as both had another cracking day here, as they have each time they've visited us.
Here are some pictures of Ian's lovely Trout the smallest is 2lb. His fishing partner Bill ended the day with a 3 fish bag of Trout.

15th, November: Today was round 3 of the Silver fish league at Nine Oaks Fishery

Andy's Grass Carp

The weather was fair with a strong wind causing problems for many. Shaun Bethell on peg 2 started of well but then couldn't stop catching carp - if only it had been an ordinary match?
On pegs 2 and 3 were the Pembroke boys, Steve and Brian, who had some good fish but also had problems with the carp in their pegs. League leader on peg 6 was Jonathan Davies (Pembroke, pictured left) who proved once again that he was going to be hard to beat. Mick Butler on peg 8 aka "the ships Cat" was busy all day with plenty of small roach and alas several good Carp too. Mark Woodward was showing that he was improving and fished well but not good enough to beat his brother Carl, and as from today Mark is now known as "Carl bitch!" The inter-personal match between Andrew Kirtley and Carl Woorrall continued with Andrew just beaten by Carl Worrall. Meanwhile, Bethan Jones and Andy Weston were carped out but Andy was pleased to have caught a nice barbel.
Some Results:
1st, Jonathan Davies 26lb 7oz (pictured left)
2nd, Carl Worrall 16lb 8oz
3rd, Andrew Kirtley 15lb 7oz
4th, Brain Hammond 14lb 15oz
5th Mick Butler 14lb 12oz

What a unbelievable time at Nine Oaks Fishery with some great company.
Mick and I got to nine oaks for 11.15 I setup on peg 2 Mick on peg 3 and we started fishing at noon. I just setup one rig as I wanted to try out the Middy Hi-Viz F1-Carp Micro-ShockElastic 4-8, Main line was Middy Lo-Viz 0.12, hook length 0.10 with a size 18 Middy 63-13. Bait was Casters.
The start was slow with only one roach after 30 minutes but then I had a nice chub around 2lb then a carp of 3lb. After a few more roach the carp came in and it was carp after carp for some quality fishing. We packed up around 4pm but it was nice to have 2 chub a few good roach and I lost count of the Carp I had.
Thank you to Bill Baker of Nine Oaks and to Mick Butler for the company.
