I fished Lymmvale for the first time on Wednesday having read on the members forum  what a great water this is and it really didn’t disappoint. Only managed the one but it was a lovely 23lb mirror so I went home one happy chappie!! Managed a couple of self takes with the camera, though my capacity for making even decent size fish look small continues and being 6’3″ doesn’t help. The fish came at 6.30am to a big bunch of maggots fished over maggot hemp and corn, strangely I also caught a 4lb tench on a double boilie bottom bait!

Thursday was a lovely hot day and although I caught no more after first light, the carp really came to life and were showing all over the lake, cruising the upper layers all day. I even tried a zig, even though it still doesn’t feel like ‘proper’ fishing to me, and still nothing but it was just good to see that they had well and truly thrown off their winter slumber.

A nice bonus was the couple of visitors I had in my swim in the form of the 2 resident pike who happily spent all day sunning themselves in the shallows and were even good enough to pose for a couple of photos.

Anyway, it was a lovely first overnighter and I’m itching to get back. I would honestly say this lake is worth the price of the ticket on it’s own!! Needless to say I drove home with a smile on my face. Over the last year or so I’ve spent a lot of time and money at some of the country’s well known day tickets and I can honestly state that that was the most enjoyable session I’ve had in a good couple of years.

Tight lines, Marc.

About Grazy

I'm 40 something and rapidly approaching the big 50 but I'm also mad keen angler based in Liverpool. Rivers are my preferred mode of fishing but during the close season I can be found 'sulking' on a still water waiting for the magnificent Tench to take my bait and put a bend in the rod!!
