Jack’s first carp

Jack Jeffs had his first try at carp fishing at Bog Grove on the 2nd June and landed himself this beautiful 7lb common along side another 2.5lb common and a 2lb mirror.

The smile says it all.

Well done Danny

Danny Kennedy wrote:  “On my first visit to Howells Farm with with my dad and friends I landed two fish. My first came at midday, which was a mint 16lb 7oz common. After a long and nervy fight of around 15 minutes I finally landed my new pb of 26lb. As I finally netted it, I got told it was the beauty known as birthmark. Truly chuffed with this fish, and what a days fishing”.

Swift recovery

Scott’s back

Scott has been fishing elsewhere for a few years but he is back on Howells this season and got off to a flyer on his first session back with this 24lb-ish half linear Mirror as one half of a brace of April twenties:

Scott said “I had this 24 and a 27 on a Saturday over night session – happy days and the bait is working! Glad to be back…”.

By the way there are only 3 Howells night permits left so if you are thinking of renewing your ticket please move fast as these will be sold on a first come first serve basis.

Bankside works at Bog Grove

I am pleased to confirm that the slippery area of bank behind the first two swims at Bog Grove has now been sorted out using road planings:

The lake is fishing really well at the moment and after I took the above pics I landed 4 Commons to 10lb 12oz and this 6lb 7oz Mirror:
