June 2012 fishing report

Despite the changeable weather recently Brick Farm Lakes continues to offer excellent fishing from both lakes, with water levels high and fish feeding enthusiastically. Catch rates went down a little when the weather was warm which is to be expected, but are now picking up quickly following the recent rainfall.

At Brick Farm we are constantly striving to create the “perfect” fishing experience for all our anglers. This is clearly an impossible task given the almost biblical weather that is handed out on a monthly basis and trying to find the right balance to suit both new and old hands alike is a challenge. The problem of achieving the consistency of not catching fish too quickly whilst avoiding producing a “needle in a haystack” scenario will never be easy, but it is a goal we are never the less having a good shot at!

We had a merry Jubilee weekend with the Eastbourne club enjoying a fishing afternoon and BBQ (indoors due to the weather again!) John Carden won the day with his bag, in spite of me accidently weighing my priest in with my catch! Sorry folks, it’s an easy mistake to make!!!
