Newbarn Farm, Devon: March 2009


newbarn farm fisheryWell another week of some action. About the same number of Carp out this week as last but seems the smaller fish are hungry so the total weight is down a little. There have been a lot of catches floating biscuit etc. Seems a little early in the year but hey ho, that’s fishing.

The silvers have also been coming out in numbers with several anglers reporting good catches from Willow Pool and Island Pool. See the pictures below of Tom Rushby returning to Willow after a long break from coarse fishing with a couple of nice perch.

P.F. Dack for Paignton Sea Anglers wins the catch report lottery this week. So well done and you can collect the ticket from the shop any time.

Mirror Lake sees the start of the Carp League this weekend starting Saturday at 5pm and end Sunday at 5pm. So lets hope they have lots of success.
