“The Goldenloch”

February-15-02-2021, Fishery Blog, Week 07.

So this coming new season, which is about to start very soon, we wish all / everyone a great years Fly Fishing, to try and improve the fishery, and ultimately your fun, we will still maintain our discretion as too when we stock, {thus preventing Stocky Bashing}, this is something we believe gives the fish a fighting chance, more time to acclimatise to the new surroundings, because the quality of our fish is superb, we seem to have a much higher percentage of anglers that kill fish as opposed to those doing catch and release, to that end we intend this year to continue, increasing the numbers of Brown trout to be stocked, in 2017, 500 Diploid Brownies at 300g were put in, 2018 and 2019 saw 180 each year of 1 ¼ lbs (5oog), in 2020 we put in another load this time slightly larger fish, approx,700g this season it would be our intension to stock even more Brownies, as these fish are amazing to eat, but even more so they can be tricky to catch. But for the true sportsman they are great catch on dry flies, we intend to keep or rule that anglers only use Boobies when they are going to kill fish, not to be used for Catch and Release, We have been closed for fishing for some weeks now {mostly frozen} but as more and more people ( I have had my Vaccination) are vaccinated, I can see Monday March 1st as our new start to 2021, this gives plenty time to stock with a couple of loads of fish, plus I am pretty sure that the government travel restrictions will have be lifted by then, however if not then we will remain closed. However 2021 prices are as follows at the “Goldenloch” Catch and Release Only, Barbless Hooks, minimal handling ½ day, 4 hrs £15, purely catch and release All day, 8 hrs £20, purely catch and release KILL TICKETS ½ day, 4 hrs £20, for first 2 fish caught then catch and release All day, 8 hrs £25, for first 3 fish caught then catch and release There is no charge for boats, bring your own electric motor and battery if you wish. Disinfectant dip available.

Our remit has always been since 1986, is that fishing the “Goldenloch” is a day out, a day when a hobby becomes a pleasure, anglers are here to relax, enjoying the atmosphere, no interruptions, in safety with no unwanted background noise, tranquil surroundings, abundant genuine wildlife, Finest quality, hard fighting, guaranteed, boat or bank you decide.
