Bluebell comes on fire with two fish over 50lbs

Northamptonshire's Bluebell Lakes has seen the venue's two biggest fish swop places at the top of its big fish leaderboard with the 'Z' fish coming to the net just ahead of the previous record holder 'Dave'.

Until now Dave had always been Bluebell's current biggest fish but the two changed places when Carl Beresford landed the Z fish (above left) on October 17 at 55lbs 2oz - just five days after Nick Bamsey had landed Dave (above right) at 54lbs 10oz. Both fish were taken from Bluebell's Swan Lake.

It's been a cracking autumn at Bluebell with some stonking fish coming to the net in October including a mass of fish between 30lbs and 40lbs and nine fish over 40lbs.

And the sport is likely to get even better in 2018 with Bluebell boss Tony Bridgefoot saying his next tranche of investment will be in fish. He said: "Over the past few years we have invested heavily in building the new fishing lodge and tackle shop at Bluebell and in upgrading the roadways. Now that is complete we will be spending on more top quality fish and let them do the talking!"

Welcome for new controls on damaging river abstractions

The Angling Trust and the World Wide Fund have welcomed proposals to regulate unlicensed water abstractions - something the Angling Trust has wanted for several years. The abstractions include trickle irrigation for agriculture, which has increased dramatically in recent decades and can have a profound impact on river flows. However, the Trust has expressed concern that these abstractions are to be regulated with a 'light touch', which it says may mean that little changes on the ground. Click here for the full story.

Recent additions - head down south for coarse fishing in Devon...

Nestling in the picturesque Culm Valley in glorious Devonshire countryside, West Pitt Farm Fishery has two pools for day ticket fishing plus two holiday lodges which will be available for 2018 and which can be booked now. Since the fishery was taken over by new owners in June last year a great deal of work has been done on improving the lakes which now offer carp to 22lbs, large numbers of which are in the 3lb to 7lb range, tench to 7lbs, crucian carp and perch to 2lbs plus decent sized roach and rudd.

... and head to Scotland for tasty trout and coarse fishing

Scotland has long been famous for its stunning scenery and outstanding fishing. With the holiday season upon us, Fisheries.co.uk headed north to Dumfries and Galloway to scout out the scene. Here are three venues which can be fished on a day ticket. We will be uploading more shortly.

One of the few venues in Scotland to offer a mix of coarse and trout fishing Greenhill Fishery is also unusual for a Scottish fishery in that it has a dedicated specimen carp pool with fish running to over 20lbs. The venue also has one pool for general coarse fishing, a fly-only catch and release pool and another water where anglers can bait fish for trout rather than have to fly fish. For those looking for an angling holiday, Greenhill also has on-site glamping and camping accommodation in heated Pods, Wigwams, Timber Tents and Glamping Bothies with short two and three night breaks a speciality.

A particularly attractive and well kept water Alderneuk Trout Fishery is a quiet family run venue about four miles outside Dumfries. Established in 2008, the loch has matured nicely and is stocked with rainbow trout together with blue, brown and tiger trout. Although the lake record is a mind blowing 26lb 8oz, the majority of the fish run between 3lbs and 8lbs promising anglers plenty of rod-bending action. There is also a purpose-built fishing lodge with patio overlooking the loch where anglers can relax with free tea and coffee.

Stocked with rainbow, tiger and brown trout between 2lbs and 15lbs, Culdrain Trout Loch is about four miles from Dalbeattie and offers 8.00am to dusk fly fishing from the bank or two boats, the hire price of which is included in the ticket cost. An attractive water with some lovely fish, Culdrain has a small 'Members Lodge' which is often open when season ticket holders are fishing the loch. Members are usually happy to share local knowledge with visiting anglers. Because Culdrain is off the beaten track fishing permits must be purchased in advance from the local tackle shop in Dalbeattie.

News bites...

In common with an increasing number of fisheries, Staffordshire's Pipehill Fisheries has banned the taking of stink bags onto the site in a move to prevent the spread of disease.

Anglers wanting to fish Alvechurch Fisheries on Mondays and Tuesdays are now eligible to reduced day tickets costing just £7.00 for all day fishing or £6.00 for fishing from 2.00pm until close. The offer excludes Arrow Pool.

The owners of Derbyshire's Birch House Lakes have asked us to point out that, despite rumours to the contary, the fishery is open as normal.

Trust supports rivers initiative

The Angling Trust is supporting the Living Rivers Europe initiative, launched by the European Anglers Alliance, WWF, European Environmental Bureau, European Rivers Network and Wetlands International.

Living Rivers Europe has published a policy document that sets out a vision of healthy river systems flourishing with wildlife to the benefit of society, the economy and sustainable development in Europe. The initiative is said to be particularly important in the UK in light of the plan to leave the European Union.
