Tuesday 24th February 2015 Lenches Lakes Fishing Report over last few days

 

 

Both lakes received their weekly Rainbow Trout   top up last Friday. However even the most experienced fly fishers were struggling on Saturday, There were beginners catching and experienced blanking !!! It was one of those days – no explanation to it – I think most of you would agree , there are days when you blank even when everyone one around you is catching !!!

Sunday mornings Troutmasters Fish Off was great sport – seven fly fishers braved the weather forecast – at 09.00 am perfect, albeit a little nippy, conditions welcomed the start of the five hour competition .   Jason Malin managed to tempt two beauties out of the stand in front of the Clubhouse in the first thirty minutes –  orange/white buzzer below an indicator , one of which 4 lb 5oz. He got his third just inside the first hour hence qualifying for four lots of 8oz’s bonus weight ( 8oz for each complete hour remaining of the comp.)

Mike Sinclair , Ken Savage and Dave Brown all completed their three fish within the second hour. Ross Keightly finished with two hours remaining , Pete Major and Paul Sutor employed there best perseverance techniques as the weather conditions unleashed terrific winds accompanied with persistent driving rain – They both caught their much deserved fish – hats off to you boys -   great lesson to all spectating from the comfort of the   Clubhouse-

Flies used were Buzzer, Glitzy Cats Whisker, Hot tailed Zonkers, Appetizer, Orange Blob, Orange Damsel, green damsel,

 

Jason Malin was our winner with three fish weighing in at 10lb 5oz ( 8lb 5oz plus the 2lb bonus weight). He goes on to fish at Grafham Water in the Troutmaster final on September 21st                                       Congratualtions - Jason a determined fish off – Have ‘fun’ at the final.

 

Julia Beaumont takes the Junior Troutmasters   title from Lenches Lakes – she will be invited to the Junior final at Stonebridge Fishing Lakes on the weekend of 25/26th July – Congratulations Julia .

 

Todays south easterly wind has allowed all fly fishers to take their fish – buzzer, damsel and white zonker

 

The Tattooed Fish has survived the weekend and the ‘pot’ now stands at £125 .

Our little jewel in Worcestershire offers the Fly Fisher a peacefull and tranqil venue. Conservation plays a crucial role; benefits include increasing the entomology of the lakes, hence encouraging and establishing flourishing flora and fauna which inturn attract a diverse and fascinating range of birds and mammals.

We are a small privately owned Trout Fishery: the lakes  were first developed in 1971.  In 1992/3 the two lakes were drained and deepened opening for fishing in 1994.  They are well established and naturalised set amongst forty acres of unspoilt beautiful Worcestershire countryside.

The Lenches Lakes  offer a unnique picturesque  venue for functions such as Corporate Entertainment, Dinners,Lunches,Parties and Weddings

 

We are a certified Caravan Club Site offering five quiet pitches with electric hook ups, water and elsan point.

We welcome Tents and Motorhomes on another area of the estate also with electric hook ups, water and elsan point.
