August 2014 fishing report

Autumn fishing is upon us, Buzzers, Montanas and especially Daddies are working well. With all three lakes well stocked as usual and with the glorious colours of nature all around it is a great time of the year to get out fishing again, and it is not even too cold. And if you do get cold hot drinks in the lodge by the roaring wood burner.

New for this report!! Each issue we will have a guest of the month to write their favourite hints and tips for the forthcoming month of fishing. If you would like to be our guest of the month please email a short piece. The person whose writing gets chosen for the next issue will receive a 2-fish ticket for use here at Brick Farm Lakes. This is open for anyone, so please share your favourite tips with all.

Other news. Thanks to Hurricane Bertha sending plentiful supplies of rain from over the pond the fishing has picked up even as I write this. M Selden from Crowborough caught a 6lb 12oz trout on a Red Dawl Bach, M Colens from Dymchurch a 3lb 10oz on a Black Buzzer and Denys Rickett from Eastbourne a 2lb 12oz on a Montana. Credit must also go to Lee Hart from Pevensey for always catching his 4-fish limit no matter how tough the conditions, and then kindly donating his lovely trout to everyone else!
