In a quiet corner of West Wales, just a few miles from the Cardigan Bay lies Nine Oaks Fishery, a naturally pretty location and a first class Angling Centre. Carefully managed, it has a good variety of clean, hard fighting Carp and Coarse Fish (no snotty Bream here) and the Trout Lakes contain Rainbow Trout and Blue Trout. Here, even the smaller fish think they’re bigger than they are and never know when to give up, you will be surprised just how hard our fish fight! Even the small ones give a good account of themselves.
Nine Oaks fisheries has 3 Coarse and 3 Trout Lakes and some top class accommodation suitable for the whole family.
The accommodation consists of Static Caravans, overlooking the lakes, a 4star semi-detached bungalow, plus a small 4star cottage annexe;
They are all suitable for anglers, their partners or family staying in luxury.
They have central heating, fully equipped kitchens, leather couches, good showers - the lot.
Fishing is good too, margin fishing at any time is excellent and night anglers often stop fishing in the very early hours saying “if we didn’t stop we wouldn’t get any sleep” often having landed about 70 Carp in a 24hr session up to 18lb and occasionally bigger.
Getting around the angling centre is easy with grassy ramps for the non-ambulant and good sized wooden platforms aplenty. Almost any bait will catch, floating bread and chum mixer pellets being awesome after 4pm, and in the summer months fish tinned Beef Tongue - fantastic and with the usual baits of sweetcorn, luncheon meat, meat balls etc. good anytime at nearly every peg.The House Pool is nearly 10ft deep with a large Lilly bed and plenty of reeds and bushes etc around every lake.
The Main lake being around 3-4ft deep with shallow margins whereas the Novice’s pool is around 6-7ft deep with plenty of smaller fish, and some good sized Carp, to keep every one happy.

Hi bill just a quick thank you for another brilliant stay. With a new pb it just gets better. The big roach in the house pool are still alluding me though but maybe next time.Many thanks to Val and the girls for keeping the accommodation spotless as usual.
Bill, Just a quick email on behalf of Hazel, myself and Ozzy to thank you for a wonderful stay last week. The accommodation and fishery is a credit to you and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it. The flyover Bee eater capped the week!
Hi bill , dropping you a line to say what a great time we had fishing overnight last weekend . You helped me land my p/b common carp 16and a half pound ,what a fight and what a fish.
Just wanted to thank you for a wonderful mornings fishing last Tuesday on your trout lakes. Lovely fishery with three nice trout lakes set in well kept grounds. Hope to visit again next time I’m in the area.
Way back in 1991, long before the days of telephone or internet polls, the BBC Sports Personality of the year was selected by a postal vote. Anyone could write in nominating the man or woman of their choice. How reliable this process was we don't know and have to rely on trust!. You really have to wonder whether track and field athletes with most the wins (18) in the past 66 years have really captured our hearts more often than say footballers (5) or jockeys, snooker players or rugby players (1 apiece).
During the early 1990's Bob Nudd was an international angling superstar. He had just won the World Freshwater Angling Championships for the second time and would eventually go on to win it four times. In recognition of this achievement the Angling Times, a newspaper with a bigger readership than the Daily Telegraph at the time, organised a write-in campaign helpfully providing a form for readers to complete and mail to the BBC. It worked. Bob garnered over 100,000 votes, winning the award by a country mile.
Alas, it wasn't to be. For reasons unknown except to the BBC apparatchiks, Bob was disqualified by virtue of his votes being sent in on a form. For the record the award went to the decent, but hardly stellar middle-distance runner Liz McColgan, with rugby's Will Carling second and soccer player Garry Lineker third.
Hopefully better things are in store for England's Howard Croston (pictured right) who last week w/c 9th December 2019 became the 39th World Fly Fishing Champion. Contested this year in Tasmania. Huge congratulations to both Howard, for his individual success, and the England team who came in eighth.
It is slightly ironical that neither the brown nor rainbow trout caught in the competition are indigenous to Australasia. Brown trout were first introduced to the continent on 4 May 1864, when 2,700 live brown trout ova, which had been packed in ice since leaving England, were hatched into the Plenty river near Hobart, Tasmania. If I am correct the eggs were reared on the River Itchen at Brambridge, a few miles downstream of Winchester, at the place now known as Qing Ya Xi.
A true case of fishing coming home.
