9th August 2014

Returning couple from Surrey who fished last year Bob and Tash this time just on there own staying with us this time for 2 weeks and have already booked for another 2 weeks in 2015.
Fished swim 3 at the start of the week.
They moved Wednesday on to swim 10 fishing up to 9 and down to 11 a wise move !
Me and Ellen couldnt be more pleased and excited for Bob this week he has smashed it with 5 named fish which is a record for one man GI Jones 52 lb 6 oz,The Big scale 51 lb 8 oz,The Mole 48 lb 6 oz,Bricktop 47 lb 6 oz and Nelson @ 44 lb 8 oz also 3 other 40's which was a total of 18 fish 2 lost, on suttons peachy keen,a couple on maggot and one fish on krill,The Big Scale was nailed on his last night of his first week with us in the same spot us GI Jones days earlier,he knew a fish was about with single beeps four in total over a space of 10 mins then one toner and she was hooked.Damage was done with simple blow back rig,Just a little tip, Bob has nailed these fish because his hooks are always bloody sharp makes a big difference to your catch no more striking into fresh air ! Bob's fish care and approach is just fault less that pleases us as fishery owners knowing the fish are returned safely every-time which should be done week in week out,Thank you Bob :)  
Tash banked lots of fish from the stock lake when they were over that side and a 28 lb 2 oz common on swim 4 on nash coconut boilie.

Gavin,Ashley,Tom and Mark fishing swims 3,4,9 and 11
After a very long and tedious drive down on the busiest day in France for travelling the guys arrived here very tried and drained it wasnt long before Mark on swim 11 banked a PB mirror,,Ashley and Gavin took advantage of swim 3 and fished the stock lake as well catching some good doubles to 22 lb.Tom on swim 9 has also dropped onto the stock lake for a bit during the week catching a few out.
Mark carried on banking fish throughout the week before the other guys had anything on a maggot rig and caught his pb mirror @ 41 lb and several other carp also a couple of cats up to 30 lb,Gavin had it very quiet on swim 4 but still managed a pb mirror @ 39 lb on PRF boilie,Ashley on swim 3 also struggled through the week but done his pb mirror @ 41 lb on Suttons peachy keen boilie,Tom on swim 9 had a blinder catching several carp up to 33 lb 8 oz but left the best to last just before packing up he banked a new pb 50 lb mirror on single tiger with fake corn over our particle,    
Guys at first tried using homemade baits with no luck really,maggots our prepared particle peachy keen and towards the end of the week prf boilies that we gave the lads which paid off for them.
Top rod was Mark,Top swim 11,Top bait maggot.

After another busy Saturday change over i must say these guys made my day what a wicked bunch of guys these are i can see already this is going to be a great week, I wasn't wrong by that just a shame the fishing in the main lake could have been just the same as the laughs we had with the lads.

Weather heavy rain most nights big drop in day time temperature from last week sun and cloud changeable winds 19 - 23 degrees.
Water temperature big drop from last week 19 degrees.
