Fishery under new ownership

Fishery under new ownership

Thursday 28th July 2016

The Fishery changed hands at the end of June with Seb Parker & Angela Tadd becoming the new owners.


Mallard and Willow lakes are open as usual with great sport for all the family; carp to 10lb, Crucians to 1lb 10oz and Roach / Rudd to over a 1lb being caught regularly throughout July.


Unfortunately Kingfisher lake & Farmyard pond are no longer available for fishing.


Work has begun clearing a stock pond in the third field to help in the managment of the fisheries stocks, netting of the lakes will happen during the winter to provide great fishing for 2017. 


A longer term plan is to dig a third lake in this field, watch this space!

Birthday treat for son

Birthday treat for son

Monday 4th June 2012

Stuart and his son had a great day's fishing...


"I just wanted to thank you for an absolutely fantastic day on Sunday 13th May.  We fished from 8am - 8pm and caught somewhere around 100 fish, by far our biggest ever haul!  My son had the time of his life and still can't stop talking about what an incredible day it was, and all on his his birthday. We really couldn't have asked for a better day. We came home sunburnt, knackered and with grins like Chesire cats!  The ponds and surrounding area are absolutely beautiful and you clearly care a great deal about the whole set-up so thank you for all your efforts.  Many thanks again, I'm sure we'll be back soon!"  Stuart Eaglesome


We look forward to seeing you again at the Fishery.

Carp on Mallard Lake

Carp on Mallard Lake

Excellent fishing at West Pitt Farm

Saturday 7th May 2011

Paul Warren from Wellington has reported his recent catches on Mallard Lake : "Sunday - 125lbs - 80 fish - of which 5 were crucian best 2lb 3oz - best carp 4lb 13oz - I used 14 elastic - size 16 hook.  Monday - 103lbs - 49 fish - 1 crucian 1lb 8oz - best carp 6lb 10oz - I used 18 elastic - size 12 hook.  I think this proves on the pole you catch more with lighter elastic and smaller hooks at this time of the year."


 


David Bell visiting West Pitt Farm Fishery for the first time last week: "Just a quick note to say thanks.  We have been at your ponds twice this week and were very impresed.  Having fished all over the southwest we have never found a cleaner or well presented fishery.  We have told all our fishing friends and will be back next Wednesday to have another go.  Thank you once again."  David Bell
