A little about Fishing at Nine Oaks

The look on the face of Simone in the picture (above) says it all. Her first fish, by no means a monster, but it will never be forgotten. She had spent two years on her own trying to catch a fish and failing! After some coaching this is the first step on what may well be a lifelong love of angling. When others are playing on their computer or in the amusement arcade or hanging around street corners with all the dangers and temptations on offer there, the young angler or totally inexperienced angler is enjoying a days fishing. The only wildlife to have an effect on this individual is the natural wildlife of our lakes, rivers and canals. How many have seen the vivid blue and orange flash that of the tiny Kingfisher in flight (They’re resident at Nine Oaks) or had a Robin sitting quietly within arms reach watching you before they pinch more of your bait. To anglers this is a regular thing where ever they fish.

Nineoak’s has 3 Coarse lakes holding a mixed head of quality fish. Grass Carp are in all lakes except the Novice’s Pool.

Use Our Fishing School To arrange your Coarse Fishing Lessons Or Fly Fishing Tuition for yourself, or school parties and small groups, as a birthday treat or birthday present. Corporate entertainment sessions or on a one-to-one basis. Our specially stocked Coarse Fishing Training Pool is packed with quality fish, so with expert guidance, beginners should start catching fish fairly quickly.

Fly Fishing Tuition is given on our Trout Pools. A Training session last at least 4 hours, after which you should have a good basic understanding of Fly Casting, Fishing etiquette, tactics, equipment set-up and fly to use and their presentation.

Those above were mighty pleased with their first catches - lovely Carp, skimmers and excellent Roach at their first attempt.
