June sees return of 'Catch a Crucian Month' - plus
photo competition

Catch a Crucian Month is back with a photo competition to celebrate three great years of progress in restoring the prospects for crucian carp in England.

The competition, which is open to all and will run throughout June, is designed to promote crucians as a species, to assist in the recognition of true crucians, to encourage more anglers to take up crucian fishing and to highlight the need to develop specific crucian waters.

Since its launch three years ago 'Catch a Crucian Month' has inspired interest from all over the country with clubs and fishery owners creating a number of new, bespoke crucian fisheries. Follow this link for the full story.

Fishery prices expected to remain stable

The price fishery owners can expect to receive when they come to sell their venues is expected to remain relatively stable over the coming 12 months, according to Fenn Wright's specialist fishery sales agency ''.

Lifestyle properties with fishing lakes, holiday accommodation and an owner's residence were the most sought after and accounted for 40 per cent of its sales in 2016. However, demand for all types of coarse fisheries, especially those with carp, remained strong as well. Properties worth more than £1 million were less popular - a trend which was reflected in thr wider country homes market.

Writing in its 'Water and Leisure Review 2017', the company said: "Those businesses which can show year on year profit growth will achieve better sale prices. With the EU referendum decided, low interest rates and better availabilty of finance, we anticipate that the demand for profitable water and leisure businesses which include an owner's dwelling will continue to be strongest."

Fenn Wright added: "There is an expectation that interest rates will rise in 2018. However, demand for all types of property with water is likely to remain reasonably good if vendor's expectations are not unrealistic."

Fenn Wright said a total of 612 new buyers registered their requirements with the company in 2016 whilst it sold or sold subject to contract 71 per cent of the properties on its books.

Your fishing licence expired on 31 March!

The Environment Agency is reminding anglers that their fishing licences expired on 31 March and that if they want to continue fishing they can buy a new licence on the Agency's website.

Following the recent shake-up of the rod licence structure, from the end of last month junior anglers will be eligible for a free rod licence but prices have risen for the adult 12-month and other licences. The new 12 month licences run for a year from the date of purchase rather than until the end of March regardless of when it was bought. However, there's good news for anglers who like to fish three rods.

The changes came into effect for new licences valid from 1 April. Follow this link for the full story and the latest price structure.

Images for the new licences (pictured above) feature work by renowned wildlife artist David Miller. The standard game licence, which permits fishing with up to two rods, features a lively brown trout while the brand new three rod coarse fishing licence shows an image of a mirror carp.

Three Island Lake open as usual

Despite comments accessible via mobile 'phones on Google that Three Island Lake has closed for angling, owner Rob Webb says the fishery is open for business as usual. Although Rob doesn't know how the rumours started, it may be because the fishery changed hands a couple of years ago when the previous owners retired.

Chris sets new Astwood pool record with 233lbs

The match record for Astwood Fishery's Bluebell Pool has been smashed for the second time in just six weeks with Darlaston angler Chris Small taking a 233lbs 11oz catch whilst fishing a Roost AC match.

He beat the previous Bluebell Record which was set just six weeks before with 191lbs and was only a few pounds light of setting a new venue record which still stands at 236lbs from Buddlea. on Facebook - come and like us has its own Facebook page where anglers can post photos, stories and comments on their latest angling antics.
