CARRY ON FISHING

Thanks to extensive efforts by the  Angling Trust angling can continue throughout lock-down as an outdoor recreational activity providing anglers only meet up with one other person. This is a common sense approach as individual angling is COVID safe and is recognized as having valuable benefits for participants mental well being. Individual fisheries will continue to implement all relevant guidelines to ensure anglers safety. Match Fishing is unfortunately the inevitable casualty of lockdown but hopefully this can resume next month enabling a little festive cheer.

Melbury has been in fine form over the last couple of months. Neil Harvey sent a report to SWLT after a recent visit. ‘Single Scale’ at 26lb 8oz was the highlight of all the fish.
‘Cracking session on Melbury. Done Thursday morning to Saturday lunchtime. I had 15 runs and landed 12 carp. I had 5 fish in the night last night and I’m shattered!’

Melbury Carp Session

Tim Thornton sent South West Lakes Trust this cracking catch report from his recent session at Melbury (happy birthday Tim).
‘Birthday session at Melbury Reservoir in Devon. The session started off very promising with the ghost koi low double being the first capture.
Then disaster struck and I pulled out of three decent carp on the trot. One was a chunk. That’s fishing.
Then at midnight my middle rod ripped off and a pristine hard fighting twenty common was later in the net. Another of 18+ followed. A great venue in fantastic surroundings.
All the bites came to either DNA baits SLK wafters or milky malt dumbell wafters over a bed of SLK boilies
Great to share the session with my mate Terry Reed.
Thank you South west lakes, I will Definitely be back!’
