August what can I say the weather has been all over the place with mega hot days and thunderstorms, but not much rain which we could do with to cool the temperatures down for us. So Back to a couple of weeks ago on the 12th we had two great English expats all the way from Australia after 10 years for a visit as you guessed the heat didn’t really effect them too much, but the fishing was a hard slog especially on the North lake which they opted for and stick it out for that elusive lump,with a few missed chances and soaring Temps they finally managed to get a personal best each with Phil landing a 42.11lb common and Ben landing a 44.10lb mirror. We had plenty of banter and I mean plenty that week and Thanks guys as I ate all your walkers cheese and onion crisps yum yum,It was a pleasure spending time and having you both here and riding out the storms.
19TH to 26TH AUGUST……WOW IT JUST KEEPS GETTING HOTTER ! This week saw Simon’s lake in action and Jolly pads too. Also nice to see a couple of old faces from the past Again, with very hot temperatures the fishing was ticking slowly with the odd fish coming during the day but the guys worked hard and took on advice when offered and most fish was in the evening and through the nights and early morning as it was cooler. Again a few chances missed on each lake but the reports were not to bad really and the averages worked out pretty good for each lake too and some cracking fish out on the bank with a few personal bests broken for certain anglers which is always a bonus on top,Thankyou again to all the guys this week the respect around the lakes I have not found one bit of rubbish anywhere,toilet/showers sparkled,great stuff and also to EVO/PAUL for the gifts for the family and we look forward in seeing you all again very soon cheers ,Dene,Karen,Josh
