Ceredigion Coarse Match Fishing From Facebook Posting; 10th, January
Well what a day at Furnace Mill Fishery today. It was windy all day but the fishing was ok. I had 11lb 2oz for 2nd, in section and 3rd, overall. Big thank you to "Angling Bait Club" for top quality baits.
Tomorrow of to see Bill Baker at Nine Oaks Fishery for some of the best roach fishing around and a catch up with some of the lads.
Coarse Fishing: 26th,:, although much milder than usual at this time of the year, the tougher anglers are catching some cracking Roach, and the occasional Carp. One angler, fishing with 8mm white chocolate boilies tipped with sweetcorn spent the whole day catching 1-1.5lb Bream from the Main Pool, plus catching and losing one or two good Carp.
Coarse Fishing: 16th,:, the very wet and windy conditions aren't deterred the hardier anglers. Fishing with sweetcorn a rod length out, from the "helicopter pad" in the Main Lake has produced upwards of 60 Roach to 3/4lb. With many 6 or 7oz each. Chris, a retired Headmaster from Pembrokeshire, finished his day with stacks of Roach, then went stalking mid-afternoon and finishing up with 6 Carp to roughly 8lb. Meanwhile, Ted from Cardigan, fishing Mussel or prawn has had good Carp and also plenty of quality Roach from the House Pool.
Trout Fishing: 16th,:, Orange Montana, fished very slow, has produced some good Trout, even when the weather has been damp and blustery. At this time of the year, Cat's whisker'ish flies have generally produced some great sport.

Just had 4 hrs fishing the top lake (Weir), first visit. Had a fish first cast and went on to hook 21! Landed 16, lost 5. The last one I lost stripped loads of line off, jumped several times, then bit through the knot right at the net. Looked 4+.
Fantastic fighting fish in top condition. Never seen such scarlet colours. Tremendous. Thank you.
PS. I caught on nomads and small cats whiskers, most fish took on the drop.
Coarse Fishing: 24th,:, a blustery day and damp afternoon, as previously the fish kept on coming. Float Fishing with top 2 or 3 sections of a Pole and sweetcorn, plenty of good Roach, up to 10oz, and up to 10 Carp with a bonus Chub. The anglers were ground baiting regularly with loose fed corn, micro-pellets or mushy groundbait.
Coarse Fishing: 18th,:, yep, better weather and brighter conditions when Carp were once again caught on the surface with floating bread. Meanwhile, Fallon fishing sweetcorn caught her fish of choice and a pb too - a lovely Koi estimated at 4lb and pictured left.
Coarse Fishing: 8th,:, a blustery morning and fine afternoon, but the fish kept on coming. Some nice Carp around 10lb and plenty of good sized Roach with many around 1/2lb'ers. Main bait has sweetcorn or small white chocolate boilies tipped with sweetcorn fished on a half method feeder with small amounts of groundbait regularly going in.
Trout Fishing: 8th,:. Continues to provide some great sport and lovely clean, hard fighting over wintered Trout in stunning condition. As previously stated using Cats Whisker, Apps Bloodworm, Damsel Flies and Nymphs have had all provided some great sport catching and decent catches on C&R of up to 10 Trout a session, from all Lakes fishing about 3ft deep. 2 fish bags average at 4.5lb. One angler has reported catching up to 24 Trout in a single C&R session.
Coarse Fishing: 4th,:, Although it has been cold and frosty recently plenty of quality Roach 6oz and over coming out on sweetcorn or cooked mussel. One or two nice Chub are being caught from the House Pool, and plenty or Roach and small Carp from the Novices Pool. On the occasional sunny, warmer afternoons some excellent sport has been on floating baits, for Carp to 10lb, in the Main Lake on Bread by stalking the Carp or on dog-biscuit flies cast on a Fly Rod.
Trout Fishing: 4th,:. Trout Anglers using Cats Whisker, Apps Bloodworm, Damsel Flies and Nymphs have had some great sport catching plenty of 2lb+ Trout, mainly in Weir and Derwen Lakes fishing near the bottom.
Coarse Fishing: 18th, April, Lovely weather and bright conditions when the Carp are, as usual, being taken on the surface with floating bread and dog biscuits. Plenty of quality Roach (over 6oz) on sweetcorn, maggots and frozen or fresh mussel (PLEASE NOTE NOT Mussel found in Jars of preservative or tins of flavoured sauces). Worms and all other traditional baits scoring well.

A mint rainbow from Nineoaks Angling and Holiday Centre.
Many hard fighting bow's and blues were caught on a C&R session using a leadhead viva, Airflo super dri elite floater and a slow figure of eight retrieve on 6lb sightfree extreme fluorocarbon tippet.
30th,: April. Hi, Jonathan Worrall, I've just returned from fishing the trout lakes on the complex three times in the last week, and have been blown away by the standard and condition of
the fish and the fishery. I took eleven fish the first trip, six the next and ten today all on short sessions. Fish averaged between two and three pounds and took everything from bibios to cats whiskers. Will definitely be back soon, highly recommend the fishery. Jon

28th,:Carl Worrall - Just got back from a few hours silver fishing at Nine Oaks fishery.
Bait was maggots and casters
Rig was a middy pencil float with middy lo viz line 3.4 body 2lb snood with a size 20 middy 63-13 hook
The fishing was good with some Quality roach bream but with the weather being mild the carp were on the feed.
You'd start getting a good run of roach but then the carp would come into the swim and all hell would let loose.
But still great time in a top venue
Big thank you to Bill Baker Bill Baker and to Basil Coates of Gb Fishing
25th,: Carl Worrall from Aberystwyth, had a few hours spare today so he came here and fished in the house pool.
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,: 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.
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,: Today was round 3 of the Silver fish league at Nine Oaks Fishery
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.
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
12th,: A horrible day, with steady wind and squally rain in the afternoon.
Although a slow start, it turned out to be a great day at nine oaks today for Andy, Mick and Carl Worrall.
They had shed loads of Carp and Roach and this little beauty for Andy Weston
4th, :From Carl Worrall's Facebook page
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.
Results of the 2015 Christmas Open here at Nine Oaks Fishery. What a good day it was for everyone who turned up.
Carl Worrall finished with 50lb (for second place). He commented that on any other day this time of year it should have won but today I got my bottom kicked.
Peg 11, as everyone knows is the best carp peg on the pool but you've still got to get the fish out and fair play to today's winner with a fantastic 77lb was Bethan Jones. Well done Bethan top angling from a relative beginner.
3rd was the "Ships Cat" aka Mick Butler, and 4th was Mr Andrew Kirtley.
A big thanks to Andrew Kirtley for his continued support by providing the winners rosettes.
12th, : There was a good turnout for round 4 of the Gb Fishing Angling Centre silver fishing only league match today at Nine Oaks Fishery.
Weather, it Rained most of the day but there was no wind. With this mild weather the carp were feeding like it was summer making it hard to get some silvers in the net. Pegs 2 3 14 and 15 are always good for big bags of silvers but the carp just took over and between them could only get just over 5lb in roach. Mick Butler was fishing a good match with some nice fish. League leader Jonathan Davies was catching but like everyone else more cap then silvers.
Peg 12 was Carl Worrall who had a good start with some nice roach and a chub of 3lb+ but like everyone else the carp stopped any big weight from the peg.
1st Carl Worrall 13lb 4oz
2nd Mick Butler 8lb 13oz
3rd Jonathan Davies 5lb 14oz
6th,: Andrew Kirtley - I have been to the CCA winter league at Nineoaks today, the match was a rover and I drew 5 out of the bag meaning that I was 5th off too find my peg. As luck would have it the others didn't pick one of my favourite pegs so the temptation was too great not to go there, No. 11 has been good to me in the past and today was no different.
Had a great day catching quality roach, shallow at 2 + 3 and some good Carp tight against some overhanging bushes at 11 mtrs , weighed in 52lb 5oz with one carp being a Barney Rubble.
Ended the day with a win so it was a very good day, well done Shaun Bethell with a second, and Carl Worrall third, well done Carl Worral for his great silver fish weight, hope you do the same next week ??.
