Coarse Fishing: 27th June; email from night anglers Lewis Smith, Keanu de Klerk and Jason Smith (see pictures above): We would like to say that our 24 hours fishing session at Nine Oaks Fisheries was truly an experience of a life time, with over 100 carp between three anglers in the space of 24hrs ranging from 3-10lb. The lake and all of its facilities are wonderful. The fishery is well maintained and clearly very well looked after. The fish within the lake are pristine with not a mark on any one of them. We were told that the fish thought that they were much bigger than they actually are, and by God this was truly a very good statement. On many occasions we were found with our rod bent to almost breaking point, that only turned out to be a 5-7lb carp, that's a good average for this lake. With fish that are spoken about into mid 20's this would truly be an experience. We can truly say that we will be back in the very near future of our summer months in the search for the 'big one'. Bill and family made us feel very welcome. Many thanks;

See above for a few fish photos from our trip.

Coarse Fishing: 28th June, Finally and at last, the Carp seemed to have stopped spawning. Poor weather earlier in the month seemed to have stopped them in their tracks. Now that the weather has turned lovely, there are plenty of Carp in the margins, and others sunning themselves on the surface. Floating baits give tremendous sport, especially early morning and afternoons onwards throiugh the evening. Having said that, plenty of good, hard fighting Carp, cracking Roach, some Tench and quite a few Barbel from the margins on traditional baits, and Bill's favourite - the frozen Mussel with which he caught his best Barbel to-date in the Main Lake. Considering they were stocked a little over two years ago as fingerlings, they've grown considerably well since then, as have the Chub too!

Trout Fishing: 28th June. Trout fishing still has slowed with the recent bright skies and warmer weather. From now until the end of August, Trout Fishing, as everywhere, will be poor. Worming and spinning now an option.

Coarse Fishing: 1st June, Lovely weather. 9 Barbel up to 9" long caught on a variety of baits during the week, also some good Chub up to 2.5lb. Many Roach 6ozs and upwards, quite a few Tench with the largest so far at 1.5lb and plenty of Bream. The Carp have not yet spawned although the are getting ready. When we have a few days of constant weather then they will most likely have their usual 3 or 4 days "thrash". Meanwhile, plenty of good Carp with many doubles on floating baits, Luncheon meat, sweetcorn, banded pellets or frozen Mussels in the margins etc. Try Chick Peas for the larger Roach. Many anglers catching 30 or more Carp a day. Best fishing in the afternoons and evenings.

Trout Fishing: 1st June. Trout fishing still good but is slow on bright days especially when there is no breeze. Late evenings best of the Dry Fly. Damsels, etc. good during day time.

Here you will find more details about the fishing at Nineoaks.

About Nineoaks:

Nine Oaks Angling center lies on the edge of the hamlet of Oakford ("Derwen Gam" in Welsh) which is roughly 2 miles inland from the Cardigan Bay coast in Ceredigion, West Wales, and 20 miles south of Aberystwyth. Ceredigion is one of the least populated counties in Wales, providing 60 miles of spectacular coastline with untouched beaches and miles of uncongested coastal footpaths. The counties main towns are Aberystwyth, Cardigan, Lampeter, and Aberaeron.

Our location is perfect for touring Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire. We have holiday cottages and static caravans and 3 Trout Pools and 3 Coarse Lakes. We provide excellent Trout and top-class general Coarse Fishing. The Trout Lakes contain mainly Rainbow and Blue Trout from 2lb plus small Brownies. The Coarse Lakes hold all varieties of Carp including Commons, Mirrors, Koi and Grass Carp up to 20lb+, Roach, Bream and skimmer Bream, Tench and small chub and small Barbel.

Our holiday accommodation is spotlessly clean, fresh and consists of self catering holiday cottages; Welsh Tourist Board graded at 4star standard, and quality Static Caravans. All are very close to the lakes and all are suitable for couples, for family holidays (with or without fishing) or specifically Fishing Holidays. The cottages are disabled friendly. About 4 miles away, in a south-westerly direction, is the lovely old fishing village of New Quay (Wales) with its crystal clear waters and beautiful sweeping, sandy bays. Also 4 miles away, northerly, is the busy coastal town of Aberaeron. With its myriad of colourful Victorian houses and shops. Cardigan is 20 miles south and Carmarthen roughly 30 miles away easterly inland.

A photograph of the lounge/diner of craigfryn, the small cottage-annexeNine Oaks has two self catering holiday cottages of 4 star standard, as graded by the Welsh Tourist Board. One is a large semi-detached bungalow and the other a small cottage annexe.

A photograph of the large lounge of Snowdrop, our semi-detached bungalowThey are both absolutely spotlessly clean, sweet smelling, and fully equipped with toaster, microwave, kettle etc. TV, DVD & freeview, in fact everything - all you need to bring are your personal towels, spare tea towels and your food and of course spare clothing, and if you're fishing, your tackle and bait too?

Both are ideal for the discerning angler for a Fishing Holiday, or a holiday with their wife, partner, family or friends; as a holiday base to tour or visit the surrounding area.

We are ideal for the avid family angler, where they can fish in the morning, then have a great time spending the day with the family, and finally having a few more hours fishing in the evening? Just perfect and no black marks too!
