In the run-up to Christmas it can be a positive brain-ache. Someone deserves a present and you haven't a clue what to give them. Our gift certificates make the best gifts if you are not...quite...sure. Fun to receive, they're fun (again) to spend and the Fishing or Tackle they buy bring pleasure year after year. A Nineoaks gift voucher reminds people you care for - long after they've spent it. Available in any amount (you decide), we make the free gift cards to order, and post them for you for a small P&P fee.

Of course, you might like one yourself, and we can only suggest that you print out this post and leave it where people can't possibly miss it?

Next match Don't forget its round 2 of the Winter League at Nine Oaks fishery on the 6th of December. Sign in for 9am prompt, fishing 10 till 3pm.

25th November: Carl Worrall from Aberystwyth, had a few hours spare today so he came here and fished in the house pool.
Carl's few hours A good afternoon fishing? Bait was a pint of casters. He setup on the left side of the lake, to get a bit of tree cover as it was raining and very windy and not the best day for fishing. He knows that the pool is full of carp, tench, bream, cracking roach with some chub and barbel; but he wanted to have some fun and targeted the Bream and Roach. Fishing the pole at about 4 or 5 meters with a KC silver float to 0.13 line and hook length of 0.11 with a size 20 B911 F1 hook. First drop a carp of 3lb then another to 2lb then a good run of quality roach with the odd skimmer. He kept drip-feeding casters and after a couple of hours ran out-of bait.
He thought that the fishing was fantastic with some quality roach to 1lb, some nice skimmers and a few carp. The best part about today was the winter ticket for the house pool costs just 5; which is fantastic value for money especially when you realise that this pool also has some big carp!

23rd November: Today saw a lull in the weather following the many days of continuous wind and rain. Ian and Bill from Borth took their opportunity to go Trout fishing and were rewarded with a grand day's sport as both had another cracking day here, as they have each time they've visited us. Ian's lovely Trout A good day's fishing anywhere? Here are some pictures of Ian's lovely Trout the smallest is 2lb. His fishing partner Bill ended the day with a 3 fish bag of Trout.

15th November: Today was round 3 of the Silver fish league at Nine Oaks Fishery

Andy's Grass Carp

The weather was fair with a strong wind causing problems for many. Shaun Bethell on peg 2 started of well but then couldn't stop catching carp - if only it had been an ordinary match?
On pegs 2 and 3 were the Pembroke boys, Steve and Brian, who had some good fish but also had problems with the carp in their pegs. League leader on peg 6 was Jonathan Davies (Pembroke, pictured left) who proved once again that he was going to be hard to beat. Mick Butler on peg 8 aka "the ships Cat" was busy all day with plenty of small roach and alas several good Carp too. Mark Woodward was showing that he was improving and fished well but not good enough to beat his brother Carl, and as from today Mark is now known as "Carl bitch!" The inter-personal match between Andrew Kirtley and Carl Woorrall continued with Andrew just beaten by Carl Worrall. Meanwhile, Bethan Jones and Andy Weston were carped out but Andy was pleased to have caught a nice barbel.
Some Results:
1st Jonathan Davies 26lb 7oz (pictured left)
2nd Carl Worrall 16lb 8oz
3rd Andrew Kirtley 15lb 7oz
4th Brain Hammond 14lb 15oz
5th Mick Butler 14lb 12oz

4th November:From Carl Worrall's Facebook pageW
What a unbelievable time at Nine Oaks Fishery with some great company.
Mick and I got to nine oaks for 11.15 I setup on peg 2 Mick on peg 3 and we started fishing at noon. I just setup one rig as I wanted to try out the Middy Hi-Viz F1-Carp Micro-ShockElastic 4-8, Main line was Middy Lo-Viz 0.12, hook length 0.10 with a size 18 Middy 63-13. Bait was Casters.
The start was slow with only one roach after 30 minutes but then I had a nice chub around 2lb then a carp of 3lb. After a few more roach the carp came in and it was carp after carp for some quality fishing. We packed up around 4pm but it was nice to have 2 chub a few good roach and I lost count of the Carp I had.
Thank you to Bill Baker of Nine Oaks and to Mick Butler for the company.

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. Freeview TV, DVD & 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!

Check here for more details of our self-catering Holiday Accommodation.
