MARCH 2020 - OUR FISHERY IS CLOSED
PLEASE USE THE CRANBROOK ROAD ENTRANCE TO THE FISHERY (IGNORE THE ROAD SIGNS YOU CAN GET THROUGH!). SHOREHAM ROAD/GRANGE ROAD ENTRANCE IS CLOSED FOR 12 WEEKS FROM 20/1/20 DUE TO SOUTH EAST WATER MAJOR REPAIRS. WE APOLOGISE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.
Following the Prime Minister's broadcast on the 23/3/20 we have decided to close our fishery to keep our Anglers safe. Our Trout Masters Fish Off on the 17 May 2020 has been postponed until further notice we would hope to reinstate it later in the year. These are very difficult times and we all need to be vigilant. Please look after yourselves and your families and we will keep in touch.
With best wishes, Gaynor, Richard & Audrey.
EXCITING EVENT: 14 JUNE 2020 – SKILL SET DAY WITH CHARLES JARDINE
Our dear friend, Charles Jardine, who will be familiar to many of you as a multi disciplined Fly Fisherman who has represented his Country in this Sport, written many books and articles is going to be sharing all his knowledge and skill set with any of you that would be interested at our Fishery. This is a fund raising event for Fishing for Schools which was started by Charles some 12 years ago to help young people from challenging backgrounds get into Angling and back into education. It is a national operation under the Countryside Alliance Foundation and enjoys charitable status. On the back of this event we shall also be hosting a Fishing For Schools Day on the 15 July 2020 which Charles will also be hosting at our Fishery. We are very keen to support the young in this sport and we are excited to work alongside Charles and this wonderful Charity.
The day will include the following:-
Fly casting demos with hands on help
Fly tying demo – Specific to Still Water and Tenterden
(Charles was 18 when he first fished at Tenterden!)
Selecting the right kit for the sport
Learning about knots, leaders, lines etc.
Entomology – matching the fly to the insect and conditions
Half Day – 1 fish ticket to use on the day and practise your skills
Duration: 10am – 5pm.
Food: Bring a picnic to enjoy in our beautiful Wealden setting. Free Tea/coffee/refreshments. Use of our new Fishery Lodge with WC/Kitchen Facilities.
Limited spaces. All assistants will be qualified, ample opportunity for one to one tuition, hence we have limited the number to 25 people.
We are taking names of those interested in this for the moment and will ask you to book a place nearer to the time when we know what the protocol will be with the Coronavirus.
We hope to run it being outside in the countryside.
